Russia and China understand that multipolarity is a matter of survival rather than fighting against the Anglophone Hegemon, their vassals parading as a “Collective West”, and their occupied territories in Asia
President Putin and I have summarised together the results of the development of bilateral relations over the past ten years and agreed that Sino-Russian relations have gone far beyond bilateral relations and are vital for the modern world order and the fate of mankindXi Jinping
Russia and China are challenging the political system built by the West several centuries ago. The centre of gravity is shifting to the East.
The era of Anglophone Hegemony is the bloodiest in entire human history. It is littered with wars to conquer colonies, genocides against the native population of the Global South and two “world” wars in Europe. The end of WWII marked the forming of an Anglophone Hegemon. Colonial powers of Western Europe became vassals of the Anglophone Hegemon. Japan and South Korea were occupied and forced to be vassals as well. Colonialism was replaced with neocolonialism, which proved to be more harmful.
The era of Western dominance began with the discovery of the Columbus of America in the XV century. It reached a peak during the self-destruction of the Soviet Union. This era is gradually moving towards a natural decline. The centre of gravity of world politics is confidently shifting to the East.
This is evident from many signs, including the fact that the states of South America, Asia and Africa, in almost full force, refused to impose sanctions against Russia on the orders of the United States. This made one of the American journalists admit that the war’s outcome in Ukraine was not decided in Washington and Brussels but in Asian and African capitals. The journalist remembered that Moscow’s economic cooperation with the outside world continues. The Russian economy could not be brought to its knees. It means it is impossible to expect humiliating concessions from the Kremlin on the Ukrainian issue.
Russia and China are not trying to create a new block as it would be another hegemon by itself
It is essential to understand that the Russian-Chinese partnership is not block. In the Chinese geopolitical tradition, the concept of an alliance or bloc with another state is generally absent. The Chinese call their country the Heavenly Empire. They believe that the only time they allied with another country was during the Soviet-Chinese Union of the 1950s. And they think that this ended badly.
Even if the views of Russia and China on some aspects of Ukrainian events vary, this will not disrupt their cooperation. Both powers understand that they can stand under pressure from the Anglophone Hegemon, the collective West and its Asian occupied territories ( Japan, South Korea, etc. ) only together.
The Russian-Chinese partnership is dangerous for the West. It is not only because China has high industrial potential and Russia – has the energy resources necessary for its functioning. This partnership is difficult for supporters of the unipolar world in that both powers have a critical strategic position in Eurasia.
Unlike the United States, Beijing stands for negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv. Considering the prevailing realities as starting point. The Chinese leadership understands that the war against Russia in Ukraine – is a war against China. The fact is that Washington, fomenting a fire of war at the western borders of Eurasia, is erecting a ramp on the path of Chinese goods to Europe as part of the infrastructure project «One Belt – One Road». Washington fears the economic rapprochement of Europe and China through Russia. By war in Ukraine, the West undermines the prospects for the export of Chinese goods to Europe.
Anglosphere Hegemon trying to deny land-way between China and Europe
Beijing hoped to launch commodity routes through Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus to the EU. The land-way is safer for China, unlike the sea, which the US Navy and NATO can block. Beijing is particularly concerned about the Malakka problem – the ability of a foreign fleet to block the Strait of Malacca, through which China receives and sends the lion’s share of goods, including oil. In the narrowest place, the strait has only 2.5 km.
By provoking a conflict in Ukraine, the junction of Eurasia and Europe, the United States again exacerbated the Malakka problem for Beijing. Thus, the war in Ukraine – is not about Ukraine as such. The war is as much against China as it is against Russia.
Russia and China are in a similar geopolitical position. Anglosphere Hegemon and Collective West want to block Russian access to Europe through the Baltic-Black Sea corridor. Anglosphere Hegemon and Collective West intend to block China’s ocean access through the chain of islands from Kuril to Japanese Hokkaido and through the Philippines and Taiwan to Indonesia. Tokyo’s territorial claims against the Kuril Islands are not just against Russia. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida went to Kiev when Xi Jinping arrived in Moscow. It was not by coincidence.
Russia is not fighting for new territories in Ukraine. Russia does not need them at all. Also, Russia is not fighting just for the rights of the Russian minority in Eastern and Southern Ukraine. Russia is fighting for the freedom of Europe (occupied since 1945), Asia, Africa and Latin America. Peoples and governments of Africa, Asia and South America understand this well. Therefore they refused to join illegal sanctions against Russia imposed by the Anglophone Hegemon. It is sad that only Europe’s peoples and governments seem oblivious to the obvious.
When will people and governments (and their historians) understand that both such called “world” wars were orchestrated by the Anglophone Hegemon? Their “divide and conquer” strategy has worked for several centuries. Russia and China finally understood that. Anglophone Hegemon has lost Africa, Asia and probably South America already. Those that smelled freedom once are hard to be pushed back to being slaves. Are Europeans scared of being free? I am waiting to see the answer to that question before the end of this year. What do you think will happen?
