In order to counter the U.S. power in Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific, a security partnership with Russia is formed. China is planning to deploy its military parade in Beijing to announce the 70th anniversary of the WWII. This will improve its ties with Ukraine, says a published paper under the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily.
Beijing showed unspoken support to Moscow and did not speak out against the capture of Crimea that took place last year. It is planning to seek a partnership with Russia to strike a balance between the US – Asia Pivot in the Pacific.
Ukraine’s Feodosia Shipbuilding Company suddenly found it being a part of Russia. The company cannot produce the gas turbine engine though as the four landing craft are in need of the five turbines.
Beijing then had to begin negotiations with Moscow in order to secure the vessels that it had originally purchased from Kiev. The landing craft is indeed significant for China’s maritime industry. It is a strategic move to woo Ukraine to be present on the cards.
China’s premier met the President o f Ukraine at the 45th World Economic Forum in Davos and articulated respect and value on behalf of his government to Ukraine’s territorial integrity. The President also recently received the invitation from Beijing to attend the memorial parade that would mark Japan’s anniversary and end of the war in the areas of Pacific.
Ukrainian soldiers played a vital role in the Red Army during the launch of the Soviet Union’s Operation August Storm in opposition to Kwantung Army in northeastern China. Many more obstacles are pending for a triumph over only if the Ukrainian president plans to make a trip to China.
The President of Ukraine is planning on strengthening his ties with the US and the West to fend off the threat of Russian interference. China so far, has maintained good relationship with Ukraine and Russia and does not pose any harm to them.
