Military Review

Afrokyta Peninsula

Starting from Djibouti, Beijing will fight jungle law across the continent.


The activity of China in Africa in the last decade is unprecedented. He successfully crowds the old colonialists in the local markets and leads among the new players gaining strength.

Relations with Africa are part of the Beijing strategy of creating a new world order. China needs support from international organizations. He needs allies in the confrontation with the United States. Therefore, the countries of the Black Continent, many of whom remember Beijing’s help in the struggle for national independence and the establishment of statehood, occupied an important place in the Chinese plan to form the Southern Bloc as a mechanism to counter the challenges of globalization.

According to many political scientists and economists, there is a re-colonization of Africa. Trade between the countries of the continent and China is growing at an explosive pace, while French and American influence here has waned. African exports to China (primarily natural resources) increased from 2005 to 2014 from 5,6 to 93 billions of dollars. In the next decade, China intends to invest more than 100 billion dollars in a number of countries south of the Sahara. And such investments must be protected.

Beijing intends to create ten “strongholds” for its naval force in Africa in ten years fleet - on the "principles of mutual benefit and friendly relations." The first base is being built in Djibouti, the country of the Horn of Africa. This is the point of material and technical supply of the Navy, similar to our Tartus in Syria, but with a land contingent and aviation (helicopter) group. The main objective of the base is to support Chinese peacekeepers and anti-piracy units operating in the region. Now Beijing is participating in 16 UN peacekeeping missions in Africa, having two thousand bayonets here.

In the future, the site in Djibouti will be reformatted into the largest Chinese military base abroad and a logistics center for “projections of force” on the Black Continent.

Strong points are designed taking into account the functional orientation:

the first type, where Chinese warships will be able to get into the parking lot, to replenish stocks of fuel and food;
the second - additionally equipped with recreation areas for Chinese sailors, as well as airfields for reconnaissance aircraft;
the third - with the ability to repair large warships and aboard them weapons.

The creation of these points will be accompanied by an increase in berthing fronts, the construction of infrastructure for ship repair, the modernization of port equipment, and the implementation of dredging works. The seriousness of the intentions of the Chinese military is indicated by the fact that Beijing turned to Moscow for advice on the rapid and covert deployment of military bases in foreign countries. According to a source from the Department of Logistics of the Russian Army, the Chinese partners were enraptured by the creation in a few weeks of our VKS base in Hmeimim. Negotiations are held with colleagues from the PLA on the possible participation of our specialists in the creation of such objects.

Afrokyta PeninsulaSad experience of losses in Africa, Beijing has. Under Gaddafi 75, large Chinese companies have invested 18 billion dollars in Libya. In 2011, the investment was lost. Moreover, China had to organize the evacuation of 35 thousands of their fellow citizens from Libya. In addition to the main and official motive for the creation of military infrastructure in Africa - the protection of investment, there are other reasons for the forceful accompaniment of China’s economic aspirations in the region. This includes ensuring the security of key routes for Chinese tankers and bulk carriers, and rivalry with the United States.

Successful China began to pose a real threat to the global hegemony of the United States in many aspects, chief among which is the competition of economies. In addition, the Middle Kingdom, which, according to the United States, is the workshop of the world, organized by them for filling the paper dollar with content, is showing more and more initiative and independence in locating the surplus of the American currency, buying production capacity already under the nose of the hegemon. The goal of Washington and its satellites is to squeeze China out of Africa or, at a minimum, to limit its access to the depths of the Black Continent. Resource-secured China, they believe in the think tanks of the Pentagon and Washington, can also become politically independent. This is not included in the plans of American strategists. In order to prevent China from obtaining resources and slow down the development of its economy, the United States is trying to block Beijing’s initiatives in Africa.

However, this does not prevent China from building up its military presence in the Black Continent through the peacekeeping contingent under the auspices of the United Nations. When it is necessary to maintain a large number of “blue helmets” in Africa and their chronic underfunding, the Chinese offered their eight-thousand contingent of “police troops” to the UN, which was most likely favorably received. It is clear where these forces will go: Beijing has repeatedly declared its non-participation in Middle Eastern peacekeeping projects (there are four of them, including Cyprus). And the missions in Haiti, in Kosovo and on the Indo-Pakistan border are a total of 6750 people. And it is difficult to imagine that the United States, Europe and India will allow Chinese policemen to their borders. Africa remains.

      China is not sleeping. Russia urgently needs a decent birth rate and the development of the Far East, as well as the crowding out of illegal immigrants. Otherwise, you can lose the AI. Issuing 1 ha of land is a sure step, but is it enough?
      I am sure that China is not only looking at Africa, and only fear of the United States keeps it in relative alliance with the Russian Federation.
      a holy place never happens empty))) let them push the amers ...)
      Better yet, let them cling (not before a nuclear war of course), so that they would forget about us for a while.
      If only they did not climb to us. We have few interests in Africa.
      In fact, there are interests everywhere, even on the Moon and Mars, not to mention Africa. Why is it bad if our companies develop a natural resource in Africa? This is a business trip of specialists, additional financial flows to the Russian Federation, possibly military bases (which would be painful to bite the enemy, if suddenly ....).
      The Chinese are far from fools.

        Russia can respond to China with new technical developments. They cannot copy our engines. (this is just one primitive example). And the Far East is a strategic direction, and China will not use the opportunity to take advantage of the "Far Eastern hectare" program. It is enough that they assimilate the far east.

        Russia urgently needs a decent birth rate


        laughing They made laugh, damn it. How, force it? Money? The experience is amazing - the better the country lives, the less they give birth. request Well, Vladimir Volfovich managed to become famous - every woman has a man. Only there will be no more children from this. The current life plan is "success" (car, apartment, career) And only then (which means after 30) - a child (and that is optional). Can you change the order of values? All the more "urgent" lol

          Of course you can’t force it. You probably heard that in tsarist Russia the beginning of the 20th century and even the first decades of Soviet power, families in the villages had large families (6-12) and more children. Why was that? Yes, because each child in the family was an additional employee, it was profitable, accepted and economically feasible. + Each child had old-age insurance for his parents, in the literal sense - my family, my wealth.
          Know how to change the order of values?
          In any case, the order of values ​​must be changed, and even more so, the Russian peasantry must be restored (in cities, when there was no mass birth rate), and this is a matter of people's survival.
          Current life plan - "success" (car, apartment, career)
          I partially have all of the above + 3 children wink , and I wish you the same.

        Not a fact, not a fact. In China, the population density is lower than in Germany, and in the north of China they themselves do not want to live, they are cold there)). And our Far East is even further north. But they look to the south so carnivorous ...

      The Chinese in Africa have long been. In 1980, we went into a goal in Kanakri. Then there were already a lot of them. mainly engaged in construction. After declaring independence from the French, locals hit Islam, and the Chinese built minarets for them.

    But we could have been in China's place, if the USSR had not collapsed and pursued a more meaningful policy. There are good lands in Africa, strata of black earth; there are deposits of minerals - almost any - oil, gold, diamonds; valuable tree species, beautiful both in texture and in strength characteristics, which even bearing bushings are made of them, and self-lubricating. You can not talk about rare species of animals and plants, it goes without saying. In general, it is not in vain that China sent its tentacles to the Black Continent. Moreover, many locals approve of this, China builds infrastructure and factories for them, people there begin to live more prosperous. Not like the French and Americans, who force “free” help to buy.

    What to say about Africa ..... During a business trip to Cuba (returned in 2015), the main impression is that if the truck, bus, scooter is new, it is 100% China. Along the entire coast from Mantanzas to Havana there are exploration rigs (looking for oil) and all this is PetroChina (the Chinese analogue of Rosneft). Havana has a huge Chinatown, according to the official. According to data, about 150 thousand Chinese live. The locals regretfully recall the "Commarade Rousseau", who, in their opinion, helped better and more disinterestedly (in translation - for nothing). We are being rapidly ousted even from primordially friendly countries.

    Too much the author exaggerates everything. European countries invested in African colonies in order to establish their enterprises with cheap labor there, and at the same time to sell their products in these new markets. While the enterprises worked, the workers received something and could at least buy something for these pennies. Now they curtailed all production there and moved it - guess where? - to the same China. Because Africa, even as a market, is no longer considered by Europeans. Beggars. Chinese workers are more skilled and manufacturing safer. The Chinese themselves say: what the African worker will do then will have to be redone to the Chinese, and even the contingent must be introduced in order to protect production in Africa - it’s restless there, coups, militants, etc. More expensive than in China itself. Therefore, China does not lead any expansion of production capacities to Africa. All of China's interests lie in primitive extractive resource production in Africa, where African workers have the skills to own a pick and shovel. About the bases, too, it was somehow loudly said: ensuring the supply of resources, but limited contingents, for the safety of mining and transportation.

    The USSR also built infrastructure in the union republics. And what did some of them pay us in the end? But China does not repeat the mistakes of the USSR, it does nothing for it. Is there any resources? Is there any money? You will have the infrastructure. No resources? No money? Well, then there is no infrastructure.

    Here I was last year in Tajikistan, visiting my relatives. Luxurious roads, as in Europe, high-tech mountain serpentines and tunnels ... Everything was built by the Chinese. Do you think China built it all for free and for that? Out of the kindness of your heart? No. Toll roads, Chinese companies have the lion's share. Plus "rent" of large plots of land in many regions of Tajikistan. And this is not s ** t "20 hectares near Baikal", for which our liberalization for sh ** but went to thousands and thousands of hectares, where the Chinese is already almost EVERYTHING.

    China is doing wiser, given the mistakes of the USSR.

    I will stop the appearance in the coming years of a new variety of mestizos, at such a pace in ten years many will see their sight when they see a renewed celestial empire. Hubbard was damn right foreseeing a similar threat vector
    Today, China is in conjunction with Russia, since its task is to weaken the old hegemons, while Russia does not bear the threat that comes from the Western empires, since the process of becoming Russia, although it is proceeding, is very weak. Tomorrow, China will begin to dictate from a position of strength, this is inevitable. Throughout the world, a huge number of Chinese who remember their homeland, regardless of their place of residence.
    And to see such prospects, one does not have to be Wang.

      It really is. Millions of Chinese in the USA, South America, Southeast Asia But in Canada there are few. And in Finland they are not. And in Sweden, no. But wherever they are, they have not captured anyone, the very States are not particularly worried about this. Once again, it all depends on us. Once we have already surrendered our country. If we do this further, the Chinese will certainly come and not only.

    Well done Chinese, the only way to survive. Do not chew snot, but act for the good of your country! It’s a pity that our leading politicians are far from the concepts of patriotism and welfare of their country

    The Chinese model of expansion into Africa is very different from the "gold-billion dollar" model. China, after all, to some extent, with talk, is communist. Perhaps this will solve many problems of this region and not only this. Here, the Chinese also benefit from our developments.

    I’m thinking, but what kind of "tangerine" ours do not really unfold there ?! Latin America is, of course, good, but Africa, I think, is no worse ... And it is closer geographically. And the Chinese are good fellows, without noise, without fuss they bend their line against all other enemies.

    Well, until our interests overlap with Chinese. Is this the work of our diplomacy? If so - well done!

      I hope that when our interests diverge, our army will work as brilliantly as our diplomacy today

    Well what to say. I envy China with white envy. And paraphrasing a phrase from a favorite movie - we should be in its place ... And again, a favorite topic pops up about the lack of a long-term development concept with global, but achievable goals, unlike the United States, and now China ..
