Collapse on the Russian-Chinese border: Beijing closed almost all checkpoints

In early December, Chinese authorities closed four of the five checkpoints on the border with Russia due to the situation with COVID-19. After that, all the trucks with various goods rushed to the open checkpoint - Suifenhe (China's northeastern province of Heilongjiang) - the largest crossing and land trade port between the Russian Federation and the PRC.

As a result, more than a thousand trucks have accumulated, which has caused not just a congestion or a long queue, but a real transport collapse on the border between the two countries. About this newspaper "News" the carriers said.

The publication notes that the priority of crossing the border is given to trucks with food. Trucks with other goods, according to the Gruzavtotrans association, have been waiting for weeks. Moreover, Beijing will open other checkpoints no earlier than at the end of January 2022.

The Federal Customs Service (FCS) of Russia confirmed that in the period from 13 to 26 December, a large congestion of trucks was indeed observed at the indicated checkpoint. However, as of the morning of December 27, the queue was seriously reduced and "became insignificant, only 150 trucks."

Moreover, the "Post of Russia" clarified the publication, concerned with New Year's gifts for Russians, that 85% of all shipments from China are received by the company by air. On the Chinese virtual trading platform AliExpress was told that the company uses road transport extremely rarely and the overwhelming majority of goods are delivered to the Russian Federation by air carriers. At the same time, the largest Russian online store Wildberries explained that they do not deliver goods from China on their own.

    I can't wait for orders this year. And then - the Chinese New Year ... They will probably arrive by March.

    I wonder if the authorities are watching the news?
    In all the news from the railway border crossings, how many eyes see trains with ROUND FOREST, which, as it were, is prohibited for export ...

    And all the allies with Russia behave this way. Only for themselves benefit, they know that Russia will wipe out and forgive. When mediocrities rule, it is not possible otherwise. To defend the interests of Russia, but there is no such thing for them!

    Can not understand anything. Is it there or from there?
    Are we still buying food in China? Can this be stopped somehow? Can't we provide ourselves with food? In China, there is desert and famine. There themselves have nothing to eat. We have such knowledge about China. And we produce more than enough agricultural products. We sell for export. Or has it started again?
