Russia continues to arm China. The uniqueness of the situation is that the Celestial Empire can be considered both as an ally of Moscow and as its probable opponent.


Currently, Russia has completed the delivery to China of the second regiment of the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system. This is one of the best air defense systems in the world, so it is not surprising that such a famous buyer of Russian weapons as China showed interest in the S-400.

The contract was signed by the parties in December last year in China, then the system itself was delivered by sea: command post, two divisions of launchers, radar stations, auxiliary and power equipment, spare parts, tools, 120 latest anti-aircraft guided missiles of two types.

Among all the buyers of Russian weapons, China became the first state to receive a full set of S-400 back in May 2018. Now it’s the turn to get the second set. The contract amounted to three billion dollars - not so bad for the air defense system, given that the Chinese will probably not stop at this party.

Recall that the S-400 Triumph is an anti-aircraft missile system of long and medium range. It is designed to repel an air attack and combat enemy reconnaissance vehicles, and is capable of working in the face of opposition from the enemy - its fire and electronic weapons. The high combat qualities of the S-400 attracted the attention of foreign buyers.

The first was China, then they decided to acquire the S-400 in Turkey. At present, Russia, Belarus (2 divisions), China and Turkey have anti-aircraft missile systems. By 2025, the supply of S-400 to India will be completed. In addition, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Morocco are seriously considering buying the S-400. As you can see, even such traditional US military partners as Turkey and Saudi Arabia showed interest in the system, and Ankara generally got into a strong altercation with Washington over the acquisition of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems.

China, hoping to acquire at least 6 S-400 divisions, intends to seriously strengthen its air defense. The United States is concerned about the aggressive actions of the United States in the Asia-Pacific region, which can be used as provocateurs by friendly countries - Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. In addition, China has long-standing difficult relations with neighboring India and Vietnam, with which there are also territorial disputes.

China’s air defense and missile defense system is one of the best in the world, but still inferior to the Russian and American ones. The structure of the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army of China includes anti-aircraft missile forces, which are armed with anti-aircraft missile systems of Chinese and Russian production, as well as radio-technical troops that solve the tasks of radar surveillance.

Cooperation between countries in the modernization of China's air defense began almost immediately after the normalization of relations that worsened in the early 1960s. Already in 1993, four S-300PMU anti-aircraft missile systems arrived in China, in 1994 an agreement was signed on the supply of 8 divisions of the advanced S-300PMU-1, in 2003 - the advanced S-300PMU-2 also went to China.

For Russia sale weapons to China is of great interest. Beijing is a cash buyer, with large and growing defense needs, ready to buy more and more. and a lot. But there is one “but.” With all the declarations of friendship with China, even an ordinary man in the street understands how in the Middle Kingdom they look at the vast expanses of Eastern Siberia and the Far East. The Amur region, Transbaikalia, Tuva and Altai are generally considered by the Chinese media to be the legitimate territories of Qing and the empire.

Another thing is that now China does not want a military confrontation with anyone. He has much more effective leverage - economic, and, more importantly, socio-demographic. Therefore, the main "weapon" of the Celestial Empire now, as before, are not missile systems or Tanks, and the population, money and booming technologies.

        Here it is more necessary to consider China as a competitor. China took the second place in the world in terms of production and sales of weapons, moving Russia to third place, DW reports citing a report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The first place was taken by the United States of America.

    firstly, the Qing Empire, what kind of education is this?)))) The Qing Empire or the Great Qing State.))) secondly, before looking at these vast expanses, you can first see how China is populated? they are moving from the north to the south) and thirdly, the example of the Chinese media where they say that they consider this territory to be their own?))) well, at least one))) To make such statements is like saying that the Italian authorities consider the whole territory of Rome his empire)

    Let's be happy together for China! The USSR also sent trains to Germany on bread on the eve of the war ... We, it turns out, for the rest of the world, guys are “no problem”: “Oil, please! Gas? No problem! Forest, fish? Guys, please! Everything is! Debts multimillion to write off? Now, get and sign, - now you do not owe us anything! ” Can someone explain to me what is happening with the country? What is it like a street girl ... Or is it our plan that is so cunning? Wake up, damn it! For us, China is the number two enemy after the USA!

      Electricity has been forgotten. In the Amur Region, 2 hydroelectric stations Zeyskaya and Bureyskaya work for China. And the plan is so tricky that the cost of email. energy in China is cheaper than for us. Amazing
      With the S-400 we have only 27 regiments, and those are not complete, the full composition of 6 divisions. And so on 2 to 3 divisions. Not everything is decided by money, everything is for sale. The plans are not to equip their parts, but China, Turkey, India, .... they are seriously considering buying a S-400 in Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Morocco ....

    With all the declarations of friendship with China, even an ordinary man in the street understands how in the Middle Kingdom they look at the endless expanses of Eastern Siberia and the Far East. The Amur region, Transbaikalia, Tuva and Altai are generally considered by the Chinese media to be the legitimate territories of Qing and the empire.


    They themselves have these open spaces not populated to hell ....



    Urbanization in China 30% - i.e. one third of the population lives in megacities ... and near the warm sea, along the "warm" rivers .... and suddenly it becomes fashionable to live in Eastern Siberia ...

    This Kodla has been living by the sea for centuries .. and doesn’t go anywhere .. Only when this territory is finally muddied - perhaps they will move off and then in a southerly direction ..

      Yes, it doesn’t explain anyway) horror stories will still appear designed for schoolchildren. Again they will refer to some kind of virtual mass media that for some reason consider these lands. of course they won’t mention that there is, for example, the territory of Korea also included Mongolia), but of course they look only towards the Far East))))) where the climate is such that the Chinese population migrates in the other direction)

        Highly developed ghost town Ordos built in 2001 on a land rich in minerals. This is not a village that has not been abandoned before, but a huge area of ​​empty square meters of completely livable housing. Most of this property is being bought up at the start of construction, however, the Chinese themselves are not eager to move in there. They know better places to live, for example, the village of Bama in southern China, where the natural and climatic conditions, together with the infrared sun rays, the highest activity on the planet, allow you to live over 100 years without disease, spending your time in the way you want.



        Kangbashi - A large city, which, if there was a population, would have more than a million people. It is located near Ordos and was supposed to serve as a zone of urbanization of peasants, however, due to the lack of prospects, residents were forced to move to more profitable regions. The time through which the city will be populated at least half is unknown.

        And there are already 15 such cities all over China ..... but this horde wanted to spit on new cities ... let alone go to Eastern Siberia ...

      Except for the smallness that there is not enough fresh water for this “to hell” in the PRC. if you remove this component from the life process, you will find out why such "empty cities" have a place to be in China ...
      So, in particular, they showed economic interest in Lake Baikal. I think - not to no avail.

        economic interest is normal. usually say so for normal countries that there is something to want to get. Of course, they look at Baikal and try something, but there is a separate topic. this is not a reason to say now that they are looking towards the Far East in terms of conquest and settlement)

        to make it clearer - According to the Federal Migration Service, in May 2015, there were 11 million foreigners in Russia, mostly migrant workers. Among them, the Chinese were only 3% (that is, about 330 thousand people), and they took tenth place after the Ukrainians (23%), Uzbeks (19%), Tajiks (9%), Kazakhs (6%), Belarusians, Azerbaijanis, Moldavians, Armenians and Kyrgyz (5% each).

    The uniqueness of the situation is that the Celestial Empire can be considered both as an ally of Moscow and as its probable opponent.

    There is no uniqueness here. The paradox is that the second economy in the world is not "embarrassed" to use the country's military products, which are in the lower ranking of the economy (GDP), and Russia considers it inappropriate to order ships of the far sea zone (aircraft carriers in particular) from its neighbor, despite the lack of own capacities and specialists ...
    And if you try it once ... At least in the form of netting? wassat

    The population can and migrates, like ours, but no one has canceled minerals and forests. In an extreme case, a billion Chinese will work on a rotational basis

      You think that China does not have its own minerals. They are quite comparable with us. We are somehow used to believe from Soviet times that no one can compare with our country in terms of the volume of natural resources. So, China and Brazil may have fewer resources than in Russia, but they are quite comparable with ours.
