An attempt to embroil Moscow and Beijing from Forbes: "China may attack Russia"


An intensively developing and densely populated China can initiate aggression against Russia and seize vast territories of the Far East. This assumption from the pages of Forbes was made by US national security analyst Craig Hooper.


After the latest CPC congress in China, Xi Jinping consolidated his power, and now, instead of annexing Taiwan, Beijing can turn its sights to the expanses of Siberia. According to Hooper, this possibility increases in the course of the unfavorable development of Ukrainian events for Russia.

The grounds for revisiting the Sino-Russian border are deep. China could easily find an excuse to cancel the current agreements by demanding that the Russian Federation return Vladivostok, as well as about 23 square miles of former Chinese territory, which the Russian Federation has owned since 1860

- the expert noted.

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the Middle Kingdom already live in the Russian Far East. Forbes points out that as Moscow's economic and geopolitical influence declines due to the weakening of Russia by "war and dictatorship," China is able to seize the opportunities that open up before it.

At the same time, Hooper believes, Russia does not need to count on any friendship treaties with China. Such agreements have often been violated in the past, as shown by the history of Soviet-Chinese relations in the 1960s and 70s.

Thus, the West is once again trying to quarrel Moscow with Beijing, driving a wedge between strategic allies in their desire to preserve the unipolar world with the Western ideology dominating it.

    Brad, why should China be left alone with the United States?

    Hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the Middle Kingdom already live in the Russian Far East.

    Several million Chinese live in the United States, can the United States start to be afraid?

    Such agreements have often been violated in the past, as shown by the history of Soviet-Chinese relations in the 1960s and 70s.

    China was offended by Stalin, that is, there is no need to try to overthrow Putin, and then China and Russia will be on friendly terms.

      China may attack Russia

      From a number of statements:
      - "The Earth can fly into its Axis"

    there was just an article on VO that China is slowly squeezing out disputed territories from us, from the Asian republics, etc. Like, there are even museums of history, where tourists are not allowed, so as not to be offended.

    that is, if we weaken with the HPP, and China strengthens, then for sure ... They will say - why do you offend the Chinese language, and that's it, Chinese

      As long as the US exists, China will only smile at Russia and exclude all conflicts. The resettlement and demography of the Far East is terrifying in terms of trends, and the void is being filled - like a law. So it’s not surprising if empty lands (not very fertile climate) are also populated by others, in this case, Koreans, Chinese ...

    If it turns out that Russia intends to surrender to the Anglo-Saxons, the occupation of the northern territories by China is a natural and beneficial step. At least part of the territories, resources and population of Russia will fall not into the hands of the Anglo-Saxons, but to China, which will continue the struggle. This will mean that Russia has already given all the rest of its citizens to the Anglo-Saxons to perish.
    In this world, you need to at least stand up for yourself and your people

      intends to surrender to the Anglo-Saxons

      This refers not only to "going out to the enemy with hands up", but also suicidal participation in the war with Europe organized by the Anglo-Saxons as their expendable tool, allowing them to weaken Europe and, at the same time, get rid of the people of Russia and herself in this way

      In this world, you need to at least stand up for yourself and your people

      This means really ensuring life and a bright future for yourself and your people, and not to dispose of all this in the "meat grinder" of the Anglo-Saxons under the guise of a patriotic "people's war"
