Factors proving the preparation of a military alliance between Russia and China were named in Europe

Russia, suffering from sanctions from the United States, may well create an alliance with China, because in modern conditions both countries have much in common. This point of view is expressed by experts from the German edition of Die Welt.

Last fall, at the Valdai Club, Vladimir Putin, when asked about the possibility of creating a military alliance with China, replied that “everything can be imagined,” although Moscow had previously counted only on a strategic alliance between the two powers. Meanwhile, European experts see signs of a very close military rapprochement between Moscow and Beijing.

Several factors indicate that the Russian-Chinese military alliance has already become a reality.

- German analysts believe.

One of them is the sale to China of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems and super-maneuverable Su-35 fighters, as well as the participation of Russian and Chinese military personnel in joint exercises. In addition, Russian specialists helped their Chinese colleagues to develop a missile defense system.

Die Welt sees a sign of rapprochement between the positions of Russia and China in the similarity of responses to external threats. So, in April of this year, the Russian Federation moved troops to the borders with Ukraine. China stepped up its actions against Taiwan at about the same time. According to German experts, in this way Beijing made it clear that it is ready, if necessary, to come to the aid of its northern neighbor.

Both Russia and China have common goals. Both countries are trying to influence their immediate surroundings, which, among other things, is expressed in the rejection of the actions of the United States, which seeks to draw the states of Asia and Eastern Europe into their military alliances. At the same time, the combined military power of Russia and China is superior to that of the United States, which allows Moscow and Beijing to effectively compete with Washington.

    In Mexico and Canada, the Russian Federation and the PRC are not setting up their military bases yet? And the USA in Japan and the Baltic states - they bet. Who is threatening whom?
    Why is it that the States are afraid to participate in tank biathlon? China is not afraid.

    The Sshasovites will not dare to attack the PRC or the Russian Federation - this is the third world war with the use of all existing types of weapons and means of mass destruction, but they can spur the aggression of QUAD and NATO with the use of tactical nuclear weapons of low power.
    China, in this case, is able to fight off with conventional weapons, but for the Russian Federation it will be problematic due to NATO's multiple superiority in conventional weapons, industrial and mobilization potential.
    The aggressive policy of the United States forces to strengthen the defense capabilities of both the PRC and the Russian Federation, and military cooperation is one of the options for strengthening it.
    Today, there is no need to conclude a legally binding military treaty between the PRC and the Russian Federation, as well as the Russian Federation with the PRC. Both states are militarily self-sufficient and capable of inflicting unacceptable damage in the event of an attack on them by the United States or their henchmen - QUAD, NATO, but this may change, given the US withdrawal from numerous treaties, aggressive rhetoric, the growth of provocations and the military budget of the United States and its allies.
    The PRC takes part in joint military exercises not only with the Russian Federation, but also with the United States, and many other states, and this is not an indicator of a military alliance with the Russian Federation. Both the PRC and the Russian Federation are in favor of reducing the military threat, for cooperation, for the use of force only by the decision of the UN, which is opposed by the United States, since this will severely limit their ways of influencing the world and make them equal among equals.
