Reflection on #Putin and #XiJinping meeting

Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting via video link with the leadership of the security and military blocs. The president summed up the disappointing results of negotiations with #Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

According to #Putin, one should not hope for arms supplies from #China in the near future. Putin agrees with the opinion of experts at the Security Council of #Russia, who are aware of how the negotiations went and assume that China will...

take a wait-and-see attitude until the end of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine or until it becomes clear how the announced counteroffensive will end. #China does not want to be associated with the losing side.

🧵My take as I watch the Sino-Russian summit: There is growing convergence between China and Russia. It is intrinsic, driven by shared interests/opposition to the West; not a function of our actions. #Russia wants to revise the post-1991 order; #China wants to replace it. 1/5
After Xi's success with Saudi Arabia, he will try to position China as a peacemaker in #Ukraine, with an eye to securing a Russian victory there. Here much will depend on the outcome of the upcoming Ukrainian offensive. Both Beijing and Moscow believe time is on their side. 2/5
In this context, a key decision point for #Europe will be how it deals with #China going forward-not just because this will impact on its relations with the US, but also because Russia is now indirectly a part of this equation. Europe needs a consensus on the Russian threat. 3/5

Russian Def. Minister Sergey #Shoigu announced that the Russian MoD intends to increase the size of #Russia’s air defense forces at a Russian MoD collegium on March 22, though the Russian military is unlikely to generate such forces within several years.
2/ #Shoigu also likely signaled to #Japan that it should not attempt to exploit #Russia’s current military vulnerability in the Kuril Islands and to #China that Russia remains a worthwhile military partner.
3/ On the topic of #Ukraine, when asked by a #Russian journalist how the war will end, #Shoigu responded by saying all wars end in peace. The journalist followed up by asking when peace would come, but Shoigu didn’t answer and walked away.

Latest: Xi Jinping concluded his visit to Moscow, and experts say the trip shows Russia is becoming increasingly dependent on #China. If the status quo of the war persists, China would be the biggest beneficiary. Ft: @SariArhoHavren @ChongJaIan @TUmarov…
Overall, China and Russia further consolidated their bilateral relations as Xi and Putin acknowledged the importance for both sides to support each other on issues concerning their core interests and "jointly resist the interference in internal affairs by external forces."
Some experts have said the meeting further emboldened both Xi and Putin as the pair finds more common grounds to deepen the "no-limits partnership."

Results of #Putin and #XiJinping meeting

#Russian President Vladimir Putin felt worse yesterday than the day before. This affected his mood and the outcome of negotiations with #Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

If on Monday #Putin mostly spoke with Xi Jinping, and the Chinese comrade listened, then yesterday there was a substantive conversation. Putin agreed to all, without exception, proposals of the Chinese leader in the economic and financial sectors and...

#Russland und #China verstehen sich heute als strategische Partner. #XiJinping und #Putin eint der Wunsch nach Regimestabilität. Doch hinter der freundschaftlichen Fassade stehen ungelöste Konflikte, die vor 54 Jahren beinahe zum #Atomkrieg geführt hätten/1 ImageImage
Dahinter steht eine lange Vorgeschichte. #Russland zwang 1858/1860 Peking "ungleiche Verträge" auf und eroberte weite Teile der Mandschurei. Ausgerechnet die Stammesgebiete der Quing-Dynaste gerieten unter Kontrolle des Zarenreichs. Wladiwostok ("beherrsche den Osten")/2 Image
So nannte der Zar die neue Siedlung auf dem Land der Vorfahren der Quing. Eine bewusste Demütigung Pekings. Russland drang auch in Zentralasien (Xinjiang) und der Mongolei in Gebiete vor, die China beanspruchte. Erst die Niederlage gegen Japan (1905) stoppte den russ. Vormarsch/3

IMPERIUM USA sagen, wäre mega ähnlich. aber dieser claim gehört @DanieleGanser (so?)
wenn goliath den david tötet, weil dieser einen #Angriffskrieg gestartet hst (so?)

die usa lässt aber nicht die eigenen jungs als #menschenmaterial verbrauchen. wenn sich die #unbeugsamen gegenseitig killen, genügt das. (so?) Image
wie #inkonsistent und #unplausibel das gedönse der @NATO-presse ist, haben die öffentlich-rechtlichen hüben wie drüben gerafft.

@DanieleGanser hatte mit allem recht. aber was #china betrifft, ist er total daneben.

No one should expect the #US to surrender and accept its hegemony to be challenged and not react. The US will look for other possibilities to create havoc worldwide and blame the "challenge of the world (US) order", particularly #Russia and #China.

Sending Depleted Uranium to #Ukraine is a way for the US - through its most faithful ally (the UK) - to escalate against #Russia, create more chaos by pushing Russia to escalate, use DU weapons, & raise the alarm, using mainstream media, of a nuclear war.

Nothing will stop the #US from escalating and drawing everybody with it to defend its world hegemony. I expect the worse yet to come. The more #Russia and #China come together, the greater the danger is for the US dominance and the more aggressive the US will be.

Dutch government to ban use of TikTok on government phones

The government immediately advises government officials not to use apps from countries such as China and Russia on their work phones. In time, a complete ban will follow.#China #Russia #TikTok…
Minister van Huffelen says that the government goes further than discouraging 1 app. "We are opting for a structural solution that government officials can trust, with their work in a digital world. The government must be able to do its work safely, also via mobile devices."
Soon,officials will get phones on which only pre-approved apps can be installed and used. Spy-sensitive apps are banned altogether from that moment on.Exceptions are made if an app is needed for specific tasks of a government org(such as inspection&supervision or investigations).

On #Putin and #XiJinping meeting

#Russian President Vladimir Putin had a difficult day yesterday. The visit of #Chinese leader Xi Jinping to Moscow is a big event for Putin. On the one hand, the Russian president has high hopes for a meeting with Xi Jinping and...
hopes that negotiations with the #Chinese leader will end up saving him and his (Putin's) regime. On the other hand, #Putin categorically does not like to humiliate himself and beg. Over the many years of being at the pinnacle of power in #Russia, Putin has become...
accustomed to other people being humiliated in front of him and begging him. In the situation with #XiJinping, the president of #Russia has to act as a petitioner. It is a mistake to think that Putin respects, appreciates or loves Xi Jinping.

This is Day 391 of the #RussiaUkraineWar and you've found the start of another daily thread.

For all the news from Monday, click and scroll yesterday's 🧵

Monday was pretty quiet and this morning has started the same way in #Ukraine, with no major news to report overnight, with no update on the drone attack in #Crimea

So let's look at #Russia's daily losses. Almost 1,000 troops: tanks and artillery system numbers above average too
The British daily update uses polite language to effectively say "can you imagine what it's going to be like in #Russia in coming months: psychopaths, drug abusers and thieves are back on the streets, with many of them now suffering PTSD too. Good luck!"

#Xi’s refusal to explicitly align #China with #Russia in #Putin’s envisioned geopolitical conflict with the West is a notable departure from China’s declared “no limits partnership” with Russia preceding the start of the Russian invasion of #Ukraine.
2/ #Xi’s rhetoric suggests that he is not inclined to fully give #Russia the economic and political support that Russia needs to reverse setbacks in #Ukraine.
3/ #Putin and #Xi offered somewhat similar visions for increased Chinese-Russian economic partnership, and it is likely that the two will sign bilateral trade and economic agreements during Xi’s visit, some of which will likely aim to facilitate schemes for sanctions evasion.

2/ #Xi and #Putin touted the strength of Chinese-Russian relations in their meeting on March 20, but offered differing interpretations of the scale of future relations in articles they published on March 19.
3/ #Putin published an article in Chinese state media arguing that #Russia & #China are building a partnership for the formation of a multipolar world order in the face of the collective West’s seeking of domination & the US policy of dual containment against China and Russia.

1) #US Intel Helped #India Rout #China in 2022 Border Clash

US gave real-time intel of Chinese positions, force strength in advance of a #PLA incursion

This caught the PLA off-guard, enraged Beijing, forced them to reconsider its approach to border grabs…
2) It made a difference.

The subsequent clash on Dec. 9 involving hundreds of troops wielding spiked clubs and Tasers did not result in any deaths as previous encounters have, rather it was limited to a dozen or so injuries and – most conspicuously – a Chinese retreat.
3) “They were waiting. And that’s because the U.S. had given India everything to be fully prepared for this,” the source says. “It demonstrates a test case of the success of how the two militaries are now cooperating and sharing intelligence.”
