Brussels: Russia and China go shoulder to shoulder against the European Union


Moscow and Beijing are joining forces to jointly oppose the European Union in particular and the West in general, the head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, wrote on the website of the European External Action Service (EEAS) on March 29, 2021.


According to Borrell, Russia and China go side by side and communicate in a language that is understandable to each other when it comes to Washington and Brussels. However, for a better understanding, it is necessary to study well what drives them.

Both countries want to increase their technological independence from the West, but the PRC has a colossal economic advantage over RF. Therefore, the Sino-Russian alliance is based, first of all, on the rejection of "democratic values" and rests on counteracting "Western interference in their sovereign affairs." But it doesn't end there.

Energy is one of the key aspects of Russian-Chinese relations. The Chinese need oil and gas, while the Russians are striving to diversify energy flows by redirecting a significant part of their resources to the PRC instead of the EU. This trend has become clearly visible against the background of increased tension in communication between Brussels and Moscow and the EU's desire to switch to new energy sources.

As an EU, we always prioritize cooperative relationships based on agreed rules. But we must also be clear about the often hostile relationship and the strategic intentions of China and Russia.

- added the functionary.

At the same time, Borrell drew attention to the fact that during a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on March 23 in China, the Russian minister said that Moscow had no relations with the EU as an organization.

As High Representative of the EU, I can only regret this step and declare my clear disagreement with this baseless claim.

- commented Borrell.

    Not against, but decided to pass by! With such democratic "values" as you have in the Union of Non-Free Countries and Republics, it won't take long!

    Russia and China go shoulder to shoulder against the European Union

    The main unifying point of the PRC and the Russian Federation is not the confrontation between the EU and the United States, in which actual power is concentrated in the hands of an extremely narrow circle of representatives of transnational monopoly capital, but the supremacy of the State and the subordination of large national monopoly capital to the interests of the State, and not vice versa, as is the case in the EU and USA, in which the state is only a political instrument of monopoly capital.
    At the same time, the fundamental difference between the PRC and the Russian Federation lies in the different social system and the corresponding superstructure - the economic structure, the system of state structure and administration, the political and legal basis.

    want to increase their technological independence from the West

    This is a consequence of the economic pressure exerted by the West and interference in internal affairs - the policy of neo-colonialism pursued by the West, the essence of which is the economic, technological, political, ideological conquest of other states.

    Energy is one of the key aspects of Russian-Chinese relations

    Everyone always puts up for sale what they have in excess of their own needs - natural resources, goods, services and other products of labor for which there is a demand.
    The agreed rules are violated by the EU, such as the third energy package and the cross-border tax.

    stated that Moscow does not have relations with the EU, as with an organization

    As with the Organization (!) - Complete divergence in all key areas. The question is, who is the initiator? The answer is unequivocal - the EU.
    Therefore, relations with the EU member states come to the fore, which is again perceived as an attempt to undermine the unity of the West and the EU in particular.
