China shows US they are backing Russia

[Editor’s note: The drums of war are beating ever louder, precisely as VT predicted when Trump first squeezed his fat orange ass into the big chair in the oval office. Just as we pointed out, one of the key tasks of the Trump regime was to stir up tensions with Russia and China, both militarily and economically.

Clearly, Moscow and Beijing are not going to take this lying down, quite the contrary, they are standing together in partnership against the aggressive, belligerent attitude of the US and it’s Western allies.

With Putin looking more secure in his office than ever, with a resounding landslide victory in the recent election and Xi Jinping being even more secure after being given lifelong hegemony over China, there are no signs of either country being weakened by the economic and propaganda attacks inflicted on them, we are facing an ever more tense and dangerous geopolitical situation.

The economic sanctions have backfired spectacularly, Russia and China have developed closer trading and economic ties as a result, a most effective countermeasure, replacing lost trade with new trade links that do not include the West.

There is no reason to think that military measures would be any more effective, but we fear that this will not stop the criminals who run the West from attempting a military solution.

The old Chinese curse of ‘may you live in interesting times’ has never felt more apropos… Ian]

Chinese Defense Minister in Moscow: We Came ‘to Let US Know’ About Close Military Ties with Russia

Beijing sent a delegation to Russia to show Washington the unity of Russian and Chinese military forces and “support” Russia at the 7th Moscow Conference on International Security.

Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe voiced strong support for Russia during the talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Shoigu. While stressing “the united position” on the international arena, the Minister said that one of the main goals of the visit was to send a message to Western powers, RT reported.

“The Chinese side came to let the Americans know about the close ties between the Russian and Chinese armed forces,” Wei said.

It is General Wei’s first foreign trip since he was appointed head of the Chinese Defense Ministry. The choice of the destination is not a coincidence, but underlines the “special character” of the bilateral partnership, according to Shoigu.

Prior to the visit, the Chinese state-run Global Times newspaper published an article titled “Western pressure brings China and Russia closer.”

The report quoted analysts, who believe that the current international environment – including Western anti-Russia hysteria and the looming US-China trade war – will only strengthen the Sino-Russian alliance.

China Receives First Regimental Set of S-400 Systems

Two sea vessels delivered the first regimental set of S-400 Triumf long-range anti-aircraft missile systems to China, according to a source.

The missing equipment that had been earlier damaged while being shipped by a third vessel will be sent to the customer in the summer, a military-diplomatic source told TASS.

“Two vessels have delivered the first regimental set of S-400s from the port of Ust-Lug, Leningrad Region, to China within the time limit established by the contract. It includes a command post, radar stations, launching stations, energy equipment and other property. It lacks the equipment that was onboard the third vessel,” the source said.

“The work continues, and the missing equipment is expected to be delivered to the customer in the summer,” the source specified.

In January, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation reported that after a storm in the English Channel the third vessel returned to the port of shipment for inspection of the support equipment and assessment of the damage under the specified insurance event.

The Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation declined to comment on the information provided by the source.

In November 2014 it emerged that Russia signed a contract with China to deliver S-400s, and in November 2015 Russian Presidential Aide for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Kozhin confirmed the signing of the contract. China became the first foreign client for these anti-aircraft systems. In June 2016, Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov reported that the Chinese army would receive the systems not earlier than in 2018.

The S-400 Triumf is a Russian long-and mid-range anti-aircraft missile system designed to hit attack and reconnaissance aircraft (including aerial vehicles based on stealth technology) and any other air targets under conditions of intensive enemy fire and electronic countermeasures.

  1. Seems agent Trump from Lubianka street does his job a la Gorby well. But, if it will put USA establishment’s heads in the rope, it will set the Americans free from the international shame in politics and military criminal acts.
