The Role of Modern China in a Changing World


We are currently witnessing the greatest change in the Geo political landscape that has ever occurred in the lives of those alive today.

Deteriorating China-Japan Ties amidst Rising Global Tensions


Despite the fact that China and Japan are neighbors with thousands of years of cooperation, their relations in the modern history have actually begun only after World War II: the military operations in the East Asia were so hard, and the Japanese committed such atrocities against the Chinese people that relations between the two countries had to be built almost from scratch…

As in Ukraine, so Too in Taiwan


Just as the the United States and its allies created an existential threat to Russia through the transformation of Ukraine into a highly militarized proxy of Western military power – so too is such a threat being deliberately and systematically created on the island of Taiwan vis-a-vis Beijing. From 2014 onward, the United State had installed into power regimes in both Ukraine and Taiwan disrupting the status…

Yet Another Chronicles of the Taiwan Issue


There are good reasons to start another “Chronicles of the Taiwan Issue” with the noteworthy recent events on the island itself and turn first of all to the results of the survey on the generalized topic of the distribution of Taiwanese sympathies towards the PRC, the US and Japan. That is, to those three major world powers that are (to varying degrees and in different…

On the 50th Anniversary of the Signing of the Shanghai Communiqué; Lessons for Russia


February 28, 1972 was marked by a major event that would shape the development of global political trends for decades to come. We can still notice the impact that this event had today, but it is now viewed very differently by the major powers that were behind it some five decades ago. The author…

Against the backdrop of the seriousness of Ukraine’s Western-backed preparations for a dramatic escalation and aggression against Donbass and Luhansk, including with US-funded biological weapons, China has rolled out its defense budget for 2022.

A second US Front against China


Ukraine-related events in recent days have clearly exposed Washington’s criminal policy and its desire to solve its financial and geopolitical problems by unleashing armed conflicts on foreign territories.
