US time is over: Russia and China will build a new multipolar world


On February 3, Vladimir Putin published an article for the Chinese news agency Xinhua. The title "Russia and China: A Strategic Partnership for the Future" speaks for itself. The publication primarily emphasizes that relations between the Russian Federation and China have reached an unprecedented level and have become a model of relations between the two countries for a number of factors.


And we highly appreciate that the Russian-Chinese relations of comprehensive partnership and strategic interaction, entering a new era, have reached an unprecedented level, have become a model of efficiency, responsibility, and aspiration for the future.

— notes the Russian leader.

Russia and China are poles of stability in the international arena


Close Russian-Chinese cooperation is becoming especially relevant in the context of aggressive US actions to destabilize the geopolitical situation. The desire to maintain a unipolar world at any cost is one of the key factors in Washington's escalation of international tension. Both Moscow and Beijing can and should assume the functions of global poles of stability.

Our countries play an important stabilizing role in the modern, far from simple international situation, contribute to the processes of democratization of the system of interstate relations in order to make this system more fair and inclusive

Vladimir Putin emphasizes.

Thus, today it is Russia and China that are trying on the role of locomotives for the formation of a new world order. The period of Anglo-Saxon dominance, caused by the results of the Cold War, is objectively coming to an end, and the unipolar world is being replaced by multipolarity, which is also noted by the Chinese side.

Some people want to continue to dominate this world, but Russia and I are moving forward a multipolar world. We want to create a multipolar (world), we want to create a world with globalization, with multilateralism, and, of course, in this multipolar world, both Russia and China will play the role of an important pole

- this is the opinion of not some analyst or expert, but the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the PRC to Russia Zhang Hanhui.

By the way, at the end of December 2021, he noted that relations between Russia and China "are in the best period in history and at an unprecedented high level, and the pace of their development" created a miracle "in the history of relations between major countries."

And it's not just about words. While the US and the EU have been struggling in recent weeks to destabilize the situation in the Ukrainian direction, denying Russia the very possibility of having spheres of influence, China takes a fundamentally different position. For example, at the end of January, the United States requested the convening of a meeting of the Security Council on the situation around Ukraine. United States Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield then stressed that the American side plans to bring up for discussion the alleged "threatening behavior" of Moscow towards Ukraine and the "build-up" of the Russian military presence on the border. China's reaction was not long in coming. Official Beijing then publicly expressed doubts about the position of the United States and, together with Russia, voted against convening a meeting of the Security Council.

Russia has repeatedly stated that it does not plan to start any military operations, and Ukraine noted that it does not need a war either. Under such conditions, what is the basis for the concern of countries and why do they insist that there will be a war?

Zhang Jun, Permanent Representative of the People's Republic of China to the UN, said.

The situation surrounding the convening of the UN Security Council clearly demonstrates that Russia and China not only understand each other at the level of bilateral cooperation, but are also ready to broadcast their position at the international level.

Russia and China: economic aspect


According to the IMF, the Chinese economy became the largest in the world when recalculating GDP at purchasing power parity in 2014, displacing the United States from the first line. Eight years later, China not only has not lost this advantage, but, on the contrary, has increased the lead over the Americans to $3,3 trillion. So today, in terms of GDP (PPP), the Chinese economy is already 16% larger than the US economy, and given that it has the highest growth rate in the world, it is logical that the gap will only continue to widen over time. Thus, the time of the United States as an engine for the development of the world economy is gone and is unlikely to ever return, which once again actualizes the building of economic relations between Moscow and Beijing.

A number of experts note with inexplicable regularity that it will be difficult to build Russian-Chinese relations on the principles of parity, given the differences in the economic situation of the two countries. However, today their future looks brighter than ever. Trade turnover between Russia and China in 2021 increased by 35,8%, reaching a historical record level of $146,88 billion. At the same time, the export of goods and services from Russia to China amounted to 79,32 billion dollars, which means an increase of 37,5%. Moreover, it is extremely important to emphasize that, unlike the vast majority of the developed countries of the world (including the USA, Great Britain, France and Germany), Russia maintains a surplus of trade relations with China, i.е. Russia sells more to China than buys from it. Thus, the positive balance of Russia in trade with China in 2021 amounted to $11,76 billion, demonstrating a reactive growth of almost 80 percent. At the same time, it cannot be said that such figures are due to recovery growth after the pandemic 2020, because then the trade turnover between the two countries decreased by less than 3 percent.

Separately, it is worth noting that behind the encouraging lines of trade statistics between the Russian Federation and China, fruitful cooperation between the two countries in the energy sector is also hidden. Vladimir Putin's article separately emphasizes the "mutually beneficial energy alliance" that is developing in bilateral relations, which implies not only the supply of Russian hydrocarbons under long-term contracts, but also the joint implementation of a number of Russian-Chinese projects. This includes the construction of four new power units at Chinese nuclear power plants, which began last year and is being implemented with the participation of Rosatom.

All this significantly strengthens the energy security of China and the Asian region as a whole.

the President emphasized.

Thus, bilateral relations between Russia and China are experiencing an era of unprecedented prosperity. On the one hand, trade is growing, and in both directions. On the other hand, the two countries are gradually building the architecture of a multipolar world based on mutual respect for the interests of each of the parties. At the same time, it is important to note that today Russia and China do not have any economic, political or territorial claims to each other, that is, the only thing that awaits the country in the future is sustainable and stable development, which it will be extremely difficult for the US that is clearly interested in this to violate. One way or another, but the time of Anglo-Saxon domination in the geopolitical arena is beginning to end. And Russia and China will build a new multipolar world, regardless of whether Washington wants it or not.

    ... the Chinese economy became the world's largest in terms of GDP at purchasing power parity back in 2014 ... Eight years later, China ... widened its lead over the Americans to $3,3 trillion. So today, in terms of GDP (PPP), the Chinese economy is already 16% larger than the American one ... the time of the United States as an engine for the development of the world economy is gone and is unlikely to ever return, which once again actualizes the building of economic relations between Moscow and Beijing.

    Okay, the Chinese economy has outpaced the US economy; The United States of the type was written off for scrap, or we will soon write it off.
    And what about Moscow? Let's then compare the GDP of China, the US and Russia, or the growth rates of the Chinese, US and Russian economies. And when we put all these figures side by side, it turns out that Moscow is here - on the side of the bake.

      My dear, it's not about GDP. The fact is that Russia and China complement each other. They have many opportunities to really create a world without such rabid lies, more educated, and much more peaceful. Inviting to peaceful trade, mutually beneficial existence .... In the USSR, a multinational culture was developed in all areas. Festivals and sports competitions were constantly held with the participation of not only the peoples of the USSR, the CMEA countries, but also invited from all over the world. And they did come. And they exchanged their achievements .... Despite the "Iron Curtain". And there was no such rabid hatred.

      Do you know what GDP is?
      I will try to show you now.

      For example, a vaccine was invented and produced in Russia. 1 billion doses for $10. And in the USA they produced the same number of doses, but at a price of $100.
      In total, on paper it turns out that the US economy is 10 times larger than the Russian one, as if we are dwarfs against their background, but in real life both there and there 1 billion vaccinations each - absolutely two equal powers (although, given that the vaccine was first invented in Russia, then Russia is even more advanced scientifically and technologically - after all, this requires scientists and equipment, a scientific school, etc.)

      Answered your question, what does Russia and its GDP have to do with it?

          that's it for what I wrote about, and not in GDP PPP. If you can show it, you will get a Nobel Prize for it :)
          And in real life, these situations are taken into account, and not numbers on paper.

          And this despite the fact that in addition to our scientific and technical potential, which I said in parentheses, in this example I did not indicate that the population of our country is 3 times less, and other things being equal and the production of 1 billion vaccines, we have more vaccines will remain for sale.

          Thirdly, taking into account such a price for our vaccine, if the United States cancels protectionist measures to limit sales in its market, then we will instantly ruin their Pfizer and AstraZeneca, whose prime cost is too high due to inefficient processes and we will take a dominant position in their BigPharma - and this is also a factor of the country's competitiveness, which "does not see the GDP indicator."

          So it’s clearer, what does Russia and its GDP have to do with it?

            You don't know much about this, just like me. But I know that AstraZeneca is cheaper than Sputnik V, and comparing them in price with Pfizer or Moderna is not very correct, since they have different platforms.

              In what area "in real life" the Russian Federation and the United States are "absolutely two equal powers"? In the iron industry?

              Let's take a very classic example:

              Let's compare the defense budget and potential of Russia and the United States. On paper, the US has an incredible budget and potential: stealths are taking off, brave soldiers are marching around the world, engineers have already opened portals to other worlds. fellow etc.
              In Russia, the budget is dozens, if not hundreds less, but does anyone in this world doubt the equality of potentials? So it's not about the numbers.

              And considering the GDP, one should not ask the question "from which side and from what side is Russia here," but to look at the essence of things.

              About the rest - very easy, given the fact that I recently did repairs in a new building :)
              So all or most of the building materials are Russian manufacturers: from cement to tools, as well as windows, doors, electrics, tiles and laminate.
              Secondly, all products, well, or most of them, are also Russian (it is clear that some kind of dessert or foreign wine is bought for the holidays, but for everyday life, it’s better not to find Russian - I’m sure in your life too :)
              Thirdly, you are apparently hinting at a smartphone or household appliances, yes, a Chinese smartphone, a Japanese laptop, a Korean car - but this also does not change anything, because. there are smartphones, laptops, and Russian cars on sale - everyone chooses for their own wallet - and you don’t want to return to the USSR, when there was only one manufacturer? Or do you want? stop

                Have you ever wondered on what equipment all this is produced, according to whose technologies, and for one, to whom do the productions belong? If you bought a Russian power tool, then you can only shake your manly hand. Most of the tools on the market are Chinese. Most of the consumer goods, clothing, equipment consumed by Russians are imported. It's not bad or good, it's just the way it is.
                The fact that the Germans opened a KBE plant in the Russian Federation does not make this an achievement of Russian industry and science.
                Russian smartphones are usually Chinese with a label of a Russian company, laptops... Would you buy? Why don't you drive a Russian car?
                Of all that I now have on the table, only the Russian table. I'm not trying to belittle Russian goods, it's just that if the Russian economy were comparable to the world's leading ones, then there should have been much more Russian goods on the table.

                  here you answered yourself. It's not bad) Why then try to imagine that it's bad. I asked you about the USSR - do you want everything to be Soviet-made? So that Soviet consumer goods? And so that household appliances are Soviet?

                  And to ultrasound Soviet? And that the dentist is only Soviet?

                  Or maybe, like in the USA, you want to pay money for visiting a doctor? Or do you want to pay as much for the Internet as in the USA? Want to? Or for education? Let's send your kids to an American university, shall we? Ready to shell out a tidy sum?

                  Or maybe a Belgian or a Swiss also sits like that and thinks, why do I only have a table and Swiss cheese here, and everything else is imported? And let's expand the production of consumer goods in Switzerland?

                  Maybe you want to help? Go and invest in consumer goods production in Switzerland and Belgium? Do they suffer, in your opinion, if consumer goods are not produced in the country in which you live?

                  And you never answered, why can't I consider my state equal to the United States militarily? Just because they have written on paper that they have invested a trillion dollars and opened military bases in every country? Or maybe you need to look at what this money went for before drawing conclusions, right?

                    Yes, yeschkin cat. In what exactly "in real life" the Russian Federation and the United States are "absolutely two equal powers." In what areas? In nuclear potentials? Yes it is. For the past 30 years, both sides have reduced them and have not put particularly new systems into service. All in accordance with the START treaty. In my opinion, it is difficult to judge the economic state of countries by this indicator.

          GDP at PPP, just like GDP, only allows comparison of the economies of countries with a similar way of life. The share of industry in the Russian economy is 33%, in the US economy 20%, in the Chinese economy 40%.
          Therefore, if you wish, you can say that Russia ranks 12th in the world in terms of GDP, or you can say that it is 6th in the world in terms of industrial production.

                So it needs to be counted. wink The percentages are of course the same, but the real numbers behind them can often surprise you. laughing My boss said you can only trust statistics if you make them yourself. In other cases, there are always "options". The same "Big Mac" index is also doubtful. Naturally, in some countries you can buy $ 10 more Big Macs than in that America. It remains open how long one has to work there to buy one Big Mac.

    Can you understand that for 10 dollars in Russia you can buy the same amount of the same goods everywhere as in the USA? Then of course it may well correspond to reality. The vaccine example is not entirely successful. To bring the product out and capture the market, you can make the prices "below market" for a couple of years, and when the competitors disappear, the feast will begin. Naturally, you need a goal and resources, then everything will pay off with interest.

      How many kilometers did someone's car make in a year can be measured, let's say, in km. At work, in a quarry, at a neighbor’s, cars will also go some way in a year. Most likely, the mileage will be different. Comparing then the obtained values, we can't draw many conclusions, It's clear.

      Do not listen to idiots who say that you have a bad car, you do not know how to drive it and you need to be replaced by another driver, just because you did not drive enough kilometers. The situation is similar with GDP. GDP shows how much you have done different, if suddenly everything could be sold at the market price. And only this.

      PS This indicator is for specialists, liberals also often use it, but for other purposes. smile

      No, you can’t understand it like that - take the so-called for this. The Big Mac Index, it will show you that for the same $10 in Russia you will buy 3 times more Big Macs - the value of the Russian currency is greatly underestimated.

      But this underestimation is just because of what you write about -

      They are trying to "lower the price" of Russia - to show that our economy is "weak", GDP is miserable, no one needs currency, goods are cheap and of poor quality, and all the best (like iPhone) is made in the USA - these are all understandable tricks of businessmen trying to to show that the diamond is "fake" and worthless, it is better to sell/give it away cheaply.

      The vaccine example shows how facts and figures can be manipulated. And it just shows why Russia cannot be ranked among Bangladesh and that such a Diamond is worth hoo-hoo!

      There is a term in American politics - "containment of Russia", which gives an answer to the question of why to do this. The task of the United States is to slow down the development of Russia. Imagine if they try to stop a child in Development - they don't let their arms and legs grow, they don't let them develop intellectually, etc. Because they understand that this child, who has become a Man, is able to fight back and at the same time is unusually smart, that he is able to solve problems and create scientific discoveries much faster than the "teacher".

    Relations between the PRC and the Russian Federation prove the possibility of peaceful and mutually beneficial cooperation between state entities with different social systems.
    Strategic interaction is based on the fundamental principle of non-interference in internal affairs, which fundamentally contradicts the main task of capitalist state formations as political organizations of the ruling class - the protection of their productive forces and the capture of others.
    Unlike them, as the leader of the Communist Party said, China will not cede a single mu of its territory to anyone and does not lay claim to a single mu of someone else's.
    This suits the Russian Federation for a number of reasons, but it does not suit the "collective West", it hinders its neo-colonial policy of the West and, first of all, the United States as a strike force of world capitalism.
    An armed clash threatens to escalate into a global war with unacceptable losses, and therefore hostilities are taking place in scientific, technological, political, economic, cultural, ideological and all other spheres.
    Big capital creates military blocs and political and economic unions to enslave other state formations, divides the world into friends and foes, friends and enemies, condones the incitement of ethnic, religious and other conflicts, which hinders cooperation and slows down the economy.
    Therefore, the Communist Party opposes the bloc policy, against interference in the internal affairs of other state entities, for equal and mutually beneficial cooperation and building a society with a common destiny.

    In fact, we are witnessing the formation of a second pole in the world, and not a multipolar world. To some extent, in his internal coordination, he resembles the first one, who strictly obeys political commands from Washington. Unions and associations in which our countries participate do not provide for commands from the 'centre' and in this sense its other members are not part of the pole, but the operational field of its action. Historically, 'freedom of choice' has always been about capturing the more enterprising, the less. It is not clear how Putin and Xi imagine the preservation and enhancement of their own operational field, and even more so the emergence of others, with other centers, in the presence of an aggressive Western bloc unambiguously oriented towards expansion. There will obviously be no others, they simply have nowhere to come from, they will be devoured in the bud, despite the fact that neither the PRC nor the Russian Federation will be of interest to them either. So it turns out that bipolarity and the cold war are the prospects for the coming decades. No other option is visible.

    Rely on China, but don't make a mistake yourself. It's hard to believe that China would risk its multi-billion dollar imports of goods to the US.
  • Everything, of course, zashib! But China has not recognized Crimea as Russian. And this is no longer an equal partnership.
