Revision as of 04:05, June 21, 2024

The Sino-Russo Entente refers to a series of diplomatic, economic and military ties between the Peoples Republic of China and the Russian Federation in the early 21st century.

Writing in 1997 former National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter Zbigniew Brzezinski forewarned, "A grand coalition of China and Russia united not by ideology but by complementary grievances would pose the most dangerous scenario as far as threats to United States hegemony are concerned."[1][2]

The two nuclear armed superpowers, Russia and China, forged a "no limits partnership" on the opening day of the Beijing Winter Olympics on February 6, 2022 to confront the Western powers flooding weapons into Ukraine and Taiwan, shortly after which on February 24, 2024 President Putin launched the Special De-Nazification Operation (SMO) to liberate Ukraine from neo-liberal globalist and fascist control.[3] China and Russia are linked by a common understanding of the threat to their sovereignty from US unipolar hegemony.[4][5] Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made it quite clear that the core of the Russia-China relationship revolves around establishing an economic and financial axis to counterpunch the Bretton Woods arrangement. That implies doing everything to protect Moscow and Beijing from “threats of sanctions by other states”; progressive de-dollarization; and advances in cryptocurrency.[6]

The NATO war in Ukraine brought Moscow and Beijing closer together for the first time since the days of Mao and Stalin.[7] Biden and those who come after him are unlikely to be able to make a division, as Nixon did in 1972.[8][9] Former Presidential briefer Ray McGovern chronicled how

"as Biden took office in 2021, his advisers assured him that he could play on Russia's fear (sic) of China – and drive a wedge between them. This represents the ‘mother of all errors’ of judgement, because it brings about the circumstances in which the western ‘Order’ may dissolve”. “This [presumption of Russian weakness] became embarrassingly clear when Biden said to Putin during their Geneva summit in June 2021 … let me ask a rhetorical question: ‘You got a multi-thousand-mile border with China. China is seeking to be the most powerful economy in the world and the largest and the most powerful military in the world’.” McGovern observes that this meeting gave Putin clear confirmation that Biden and his advisers were stuck in a woefully outdated appraisal of Russia-China relations. Here is the bizarre way Biden described his approach to Putin on China: At the airport after the summit, Biden’s aides did their best to whisk him onto the plane but failed to stop him from sharing more ‘wisdom’ on China: “Russia is in a very, very difficult spot right now. They are being squeezed by China”. ‘Yes’: More of the same! Biden was trying, on the advice of his experts, to insert the ubiquitous western ‘wedge’ between Russia and a ‘BIG’ China.[10]

After these remarks, Putin and Xi spent the rest of 2021 trying to disabuse Biden of the “China squeeze” meme: This mutual effort culminated in the Xi-Putin ‘no limits’ friendship summit of that year. If the advisers had been paying attention however, they would have threaded a long history of Russo-Chinese rapprochement. But no, they were ideologically frozen in the view that the two were destined to be eternal enemies.

On May 16, 2024 President Putin and CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping issued a joint statement in Beijing.[11][12] The two governments agreed to "take the acknowledgement of cultural and civilizational diversity” as the basis for “furthering dialogue, cooperation and experience exchange.” The two countries also vowed to “counter the politicization of culture, attempts at ‘cancelling the culture’ of certain countries and peoples."Alastair Crooke says the joint statement evokes the "very elemental laws of nature itself in sketching the West's usurpation of the fundamental principles of humanity, reality, and order – a critique which maddens the collective West." Crooke says the joint statement is not just a detailed framework of a BRICS future. Russia and China have put forward a dynamic vision of concrete principles as pillars for a new society in the post-Western future.[13] By playing straight into the primordial sources of meaning that are deeper than individual preference – faith, family, soil and flag – Russia and China have picked up the pieces and born-up the mantle of the Non-Aligned Movement through promoting the right of national self-determination and an end to centuries old systems of exploitation.

The following day Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin stated, "The United States, with its Cold War-era mentality, bears an irremediable responsibility for the emergence and escalation of the Ukrainian crisis".[14]
