China coldly pointed Russia to its place

Having quarreled with the West, Russia began the gradual de-dollarization of its economicsnaively hoping to receive support from China. But Beijing coldly pushed Moscow as it walked towards him with open arms. The proposal of the Russian Ministry of Finance to acquire federal bonds in RMB equivalent to $ 867 million did not meet the slightest interest from Chinese partners.

Moreover, a decrease in the use of the ruble in Russian-Chinese trade was noted. If four years ago such contracts amounted to 3,9%, then as of the last year - this is a modest 2,7%. Experts explain the behavior of Beijing:

How can one buy bonds of a country whose economy is not clear where it is moving for its native currency, RMB?

Indeed, the attitude of the Chinese towards cooperation with our country is extremely pragmatic. They can smile and nod their heads, but they will only really do what is beneficial to them. The truth is that China is not at all interesting technological development of the Russian Federation. In recent years, Moscow has proposed to Beijing fifty large-scale projects, but all of them were put under the cloth by the Chinese. It is time for the Russians to take off their pink glasses and understand that our country is regarded as a raw materials appendage not only in the West, but also in the East:

They quite openly say that they see our country exclusively as a source of raw materials, from which they themselves will perfectly do everything they need.

So in China they will be happy not with Russian “candy wrappers” of bonds, but with oil, gas, timber, metals, land for cultivation, and they will not refuse to invest in gold reserves of the RMB in the RMB in Beijing either.

      Well, you are too tough. But in principle, what is strange and unexpected in China's actions? Each normal country is primarily concerned with its own interests, and "cares" about others only through the prism of its own benefit.

        As for the fact that you do not need to learn Chinese, you are wrong. When you learn a foreign language, you understand the psychology of a native speaker, his strengths and weaknesses, what they fear, how they will act. Knowledge is power! - probably forgot this saying. Well, and if for a simple reason, to understand, it is necessary for someone to interrogate prisoners somehow and translate radio intercepts.

      All our power is thieves and treacherous. And yet, they are friends, or they pretend to be friendly, only with successful and strong ones. With the ones we were during Stalin. And with the caliphs for an hour there is no sense in cooperating on an equal footing, they must be used, which practically everyone does, to our shame.

    Although the Chinese, even the Americans or anyone else, cannot be our friends.
    Competition is a serious thing that spares no one. We have only three friends: the army, the navy, and the mainstay of the economy. Here we have to rely on them and go our own way through life, changing the system,
    constitution, acquiring its own-Russian ideals aimed at the power, strength and prosperity of our people.
    Is it possible? Yes. perhaps if you have the strength of mind, the strength of weapons and the ability to give yourself for the good of the country, and not for the good of the oligarchy.

    The absence of (its own) financial system in Russia, plus the predominantly offshore nature of almost all (!) Collateral assets and the offshore status of the majority of Russian business companies - this is the (main) reason for the unwillingness of not only China (but and India, for example).
    I personally would also ponder: with whom, in fact, can the "union cooperate" in Russian business?
    With Deripaska, with Gref, with the Kudrin team in the Central Bank?
    The fact that something has begun (sort of) to emerge in "national projects" and in some (few) scientific and technological sectors is only just beginning to emerge. And it is not the main "trend" for the "traditional" (since the 90s) manner of doing business in the Russian Federation.

    Yes, nothing began to emerge ... -This is for Russia as ... as an artificial "conscious-unconscious" growing ... warts on their own body ... - or even cancerous tumors (Lord .., forgive ...). ..
    And China ... - what's the difference ... -China is just such a "cooperation" and suits ... with "Deripaska, with Gref, with Kudrin's team in the Central Bank" .... -For China, nothing better can be imagined .. -And he uses it with might and main ...
    -Probably very soon in Russia a whole network of Chinese "pseudo banks" will open urgently .., or maybe ...- even a whole "Chinese pseudo banking structure" (a parasite structure) will be created .. which is very easy ... how a knife in butter will enter all Russian "banking spheres" ... -and very soon it will begin its "work" on the "withdrawal" of Russian assets .., confirmed by Russian gold .., the gold and foreign exchange reserve of Russia ... -Of course ...- it will not immediately become public knowledge (or maybe not at all ... - will not) ...

    -Okay .., I will not ... about the "gloomy" ...

    -By the way .., the fact is striking ...- how many sites have already divorced "Sinologists" ...
    -Who is this at all .., -tourists .. who have been in China ... -You, gentlemen, tourists ...- you have seen "not popular" Chinese ...- not those that are shown in the movies ..?

    Before hysteria, you need to calm down and think. Natural resources, how not to evaluate them, are not unlimited. It is fortunate that Russia possesses them. It is necessary to use them carefully. And stop all cries about a raw materials appendage (although this is according to Marx, but on the street it’s not the XNUMXth century). The world is changing and relying on the fact that someone will voluntarily to the detriment of themselves will help a neighbor to create processing plants, at least naively. Moreover, China needs to employ and feed a huge population. In the end, countries that competently manage their resources will benefit.

    China was not our friend, it is not, and will not be a friend in the future. Never. The words about "friendship" are nothing more than a protocol smile. We do not need to ask or offer any settlements in rubles or yuan, nor bonds in yuan. You just have to force them to accept rubles and pay in rubles, at least for goods that they will definitely buy. Accordingly, in relation to Chinese producers it is necessary to introduce additional measures of influence in the form of increased customs duties, or even to deny them access to the Russian market altogether. It is absolutely time to stop the criminal practice of allowing the Chinese to access advanced Russian technologies, primarily in aviation and space exploration.

    How to make the Chinese buy for rubles? Do they need gas? Need oil? Need a forest? Yes and much more.
    Here is the answer. Let them buy rubles on the stock exchange and pay them for the above products.
    And how and why else differently?
    I have already heard for thirty years how hard and almost impossible to give up trading for dollars. The terms of 15-20 years of transition to other currencies were called. Well, now how?
    And the fact that the economy of the United States and countries trading in dollars will fall apart - let it fall apart. Lived, let others live!
    And no collapse will happen. The collapse is said by those who are not profitable to give up the dollar.
    So, go ahead Russia!

    Well, I don’t know, in my opinion, it is moving towards self-sufficiency ... The Chinese allegedly spank fifth-generation aircraft, but still do not know how to make engines for them. They fly into space on copies of the Unions, the ships copy the same ... They have big problems with technology - they just copy, they cannot invent anything.
    Even for food we sell more than we buy from them!

    In economics, a priori, there can be no friends. All countries know this, understand and act on the basis of their own interests. Except our country. In principle, we do not have a production sphere. But the resources are pumping for 30 years on the rise. I read the comments, I was surprised at how many urapatriots who pitied poor Russia. But it’s too late to regret, one must either change the political and economic system, or die on the sly. Immediately make a reservation, I'm not a liberal at all, but rather red. Our aunt Nabiulina takes instructions from the IMF and acts according to them. we are self-sufficient, the Chinese are self-sufficient, and we will not and will not, unless we change the political economic system and remove the offshore from us to launder the dough and send the oligarchs abroad, with the redistribution (and for this nationalization) of their wealth in advance. The Chinese pragmatists and internationalists in the good sense of how they pull out our economy, they understand that everything that is invested in Russia can suddenly disappear, burn, drown, and our official guilty of this will say that he tried, but a little it almost happened, after going to a raise in another sphere. We have no less corruption than in Ukraine and no one will cancel it. Any sensible economist in our country will consider either the government of that country that wants to invest in Russia to be very abnormal or too rich.

Everyone else will always use Russian Vanya, and if successful, they will step aside, taking on his merits! China is Asia, and so ancient that nothing can be assumed completely. You can definitely think that nothing good can be expected from anyone. We must be tolerant and smiling until the neighbors cross the border of our country, after which it is already the Enemy.

But people are those who think only by past problems, therefore they absolutely do not understand the real ones.
