US THREATS DRIVE RUSSIA AND CHINA CLOSER

Read Time:1 Minute, 26 Second

Frequent flights of US strategic bombers near the Russian and Chinese borders forced the two superpowers to move closer together.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shiogu and the Chinese Defence Minister Wei Fenghe  “expressed a shared interest in stepping up strategic military exercises and joint patrols by Russia and China,” according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

“China and Russia have been strategic partners for many years,” Shoigu said. “Today, in conditions of increasing geopolitical turbulence and growing conflict potential in various parts of the world, the development of our interaction is especially relevant. This month, during the U.S. Global Thunder strategic force exercise, 10 strategic bombers practiced the scenario of using nuclear weapons against Russia practically simultaneously from the western and eastern directions,” adding that they came as close as 20 kilometers (12 miles) to the Russian border.

This comes on the heels of a RAND report that suggests that Sino-Russian power will not approach US power through 2022.

The Sino-Russian pact is to counter the US ideology ideology “of militarism, interventionism and the forcible imposition of U.S. values on other countries.”

The RAND author reports that to break the Sino-Russian pact is to lift sanctions on Russia as evidence suggests that since the West imposed sanctions on Russia after the incorporation of Crimea into the Russian Federation, Moscow has moved closer to Beijing.
