China responded to Ukraine's refusal to sell Motor Sich with a delegation to Crimea

The Ukrainian authorities refused to sell Motor Sich JSC to China, having decided to nationalize the engine building company. At the same time, Kiev promised to distribute compensation to “all investors”. Beijing appreciated the gesture and sent its delegation to Crimea as a response.

It should be noted that given the difficult relations with Taiwan, the PRC remained neutral over Crimea for 7 years. But Kiev's behavior made adjustments to the process.

On March 10, 2021, a group of top managers of the Beijing Export-Import Trading Company, headed by Chairman of the Board of Directors Zhao Kai, arrived on the peninsula to participate in the round table "China and Crimea: a new vector of export partnership 2021".

As for the Chinese businessmen, they have agreed with their Russian counterparts and the authorities to establish long-term cooperation in the field of tourism and health resorts. Beijing is ready to invest in Crimea so that Chinese citizens can come to rest on the peninsula.

In addition, Chinese businessmen visited vineyards, agricultural enterprises and places with healing mud. Zhao Kai conveyed an invitation to Crimean entrepreneurs and officials to pay a return visit to the PRC.

The Crimean government clarified that now China accounts for 12% of the peninsula's foreign trade turnover. In 2020, products worth $ 4,1 million were supplied from Crimea to China (all exports of the Republic of Kazakhstan amounted to $ 33,9 million). In addition to the above, the Chinese are interested in the production of sunflower and essential oils, poultry farming and winemaking.

We remind you that in 2016 the Chinese bought 56% of the shares of Motor Sich JSC. Then the Ukrainian authorities, under pressure from the United States, seized the said shares and denied the investor access to their assets. The Chinese have filed a lawsuit in international arbitration and are trying to sue $ 3,6 billion. After that, Ukraine imposed sanctions against Chinese investors. Now Nezalezhnaya is considering steps to further escalate relations with the Celestial Empire.

      Kaklov has a talent for biting himself for Faberge

      hi It is the "cunning" shtetl kleptopoliticans from the "w / Bandera" people who have such a sadomasochistic Ameroholui "talent"! request

      Although the runaways Yanukovych and Azirov, right before the "Euromaidan", seemed to have already sold "on a long-term lease" to China the giant fertile territories of the Black Sea and Crimea, under the same counter-ecological-killing fertile soil "oilseeds", "pig farms" - "poultry factories" with their "drains" and "construction of a deep-water seaport for the export of products" with adjoining "Chinatowns" relying on Chinese personnel (this is the most indispensable condition of the "Chinese comrades" is to provide work, first of all, for the large Chinese contingent brought in for this purpose, and not the local aborigines in the "development of the credits of the PRC"- however, according to the experience of Belarus, the Chinese, when there is a need for cheap "labor", use the locals as servants and even marry them!)! winked

      It was not clear to me that the "lull" that arose after 2014 in the Chinese expansion in the Black Sea region, because they are not one of those who forgive debts and abandon the "staked out direction (although in the Chinese army such flexible changes in the direction of attack, approaches and withdrawals are often practiced, and from refusal to advance or retreat, the army men of the tragedy do not do everything" according to Feng Shui "from La- tzu and Mao, but in Chinese business everything is much tougher, it's a pity that the "quarter jesters" did not know this and were led to the Washington "promises", and after all the Chinese always come for theirs, as well as the Russians - von Bismarck "lit" everything correctly! yes ) ", but now I see that Beijing has by no means forgotten about their intention to" encircle more densely "these fertile southern lands ... request

    This is not an official state visit, so this article is far-fetched. And the Ukrainians are great here, they did the right thing.

    The Chinese will be afraid to recognize Crimea when they themselves have a lot of such "Crimea", one of them is Tibet. And so anyone can come there, even the holy spirit of Mao.

      The Chinese will be afraid to recognize Crimea,

      That is, following your line of thought, only fear keeps the Chinese from recognizing Crimea as Russian. And if they were not afraid, but were guided exclusively by common sense and their own conscience, they would have recognized. Correctly?)

    Fabergé himself was never a crest - it's not really clear why bite him if it's not eggs?

    Nooo, please leave Crimea without the Chinese. They yell, spit, push and crush everything under themselves ... It will be like in St. Petersburg in the end. I really want real estate in Crimea, but with the Chinese it makes no sense.
