The United States of America has 2 true rivals and threats in this world: Russia and China. For years it has been the fear that the two neighboring nations could come together and undermine our position in the world. Now Russia has reached out and made that offer, and all they want in exchange is help taking Ukraine.
According to a report from DailyMail:
A leading Russian senator has vowed that Vladimir Putin will come to China’s aid if it goes to war over Taiwan.
But Vladimir Dzhabarov, the first deputy chairman of the international committee in Russia’s Federation Council, said the Kremlin’s backing would be offered on the understanding that Beijing would show support in kind for the war in Ukraine.
‘I see no grounds to refuse to help China,’ the politician declared.
‘But I would like to see a two-way movement with China.
‘It means that we should have some benefits from this cooperation.’
Here is the video of the Russian Senator:
Putin and China’s president Xi Jinping have seemingly fostered close ties in recent years, but there is concern in Moscow that Beijing has thus far declined to openly support the Kremlin’s ‘special military operation’ launched on February 24.
It comes amid escalating tensions between China and Taiwan after US house speaker Nancy Pelosi made an unannounced diplomatic visit to the self-governing island nation which Beijing claims as its own.
‘I am convinced that in this case China hopes for a certain assistance from Russia… because it will be difficult for China to confront the United States without Russia’s support,’ he said.
‘Sometimes it is a game of chance and a conflict may grow into a big war.
‘But I think that China is behaving very cautiously in this sense, in a very restrained manner, while continuing to build up its defence potential,’ Dzhabarov concluded.
The prospect of a united Russia and China is certainly a scary one, if it could ever be done effectively. With 2 major, independent neighboring superpowers both currently looking to expand their borders, it seems hard to believe they could stay together for long. Do you think they would be able to unite for long enough to threaten the USA?
