But he still had a back-handed rebuke for the U.S., and others who oppose the Moscow-Beijing relationship, saying an “emerging multipolar world ... is now taking shape before our eyes.”

You can climb China's pole, Mr. Putin, but it doesn't make you anything more than a banana republic dictator.

Any country in the world able to forge relation and being ally to other countries. China and Russia is not exception.

Birds of a feather flock together.

The same goes for murderous totalitarian dictators.

China and Russia have forged a partnership which is unprecedented. Nixon is turning in his grave at this foolishness by the people who directly caused it.

The Sino-phobic, bloc mentality means no negotiations. Not even for your new dog.

Putin the Vassal visiting his Emperor to give tribute...

Russian is now economically and politically a vassal state on the greater Sino-sphere...

So outside those ally, it's peaceful good guy world? Not really. In fact there's constant supply of weapon for genocide, that's currently going on.

The dirty pair also have a hand in that conflict via Iran. Putin has welcomed Hamas officials to Moscow as well.

The partnership between China and Russia “is not directed against anyone,”

...and yet, the Non Aligned Movement meet in Baku (Azerbaijan) has resulted in chaos and bedlum all over the world, especially the pacific and middle east.

Just look at the facebook page for the Baku Initiative Group where there's direct funding from China Russia.

Violence in Solomon Islands, New Caledonia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, economic instability in Tonga, Vanuatu...and let's not forget Argentina, Ecuador, Colimbia either.

I doubt that will happen. Not worried about that, but they’re definitely a threat. Nothing that the U.S. and AUKUS can’t handle.

This one and similar posts, which do not contain any information other than malicious sarcasm and insults, speak of panic and fear in the camp of the world of democracy and freedom. Or rather, we need to put it in quotation marks - “democracy” and “freedom”

Putin began the day by laying flowers at a Harbin monument to fallen Soviet soldiers who had fought for China against the Japanese during the second Sino-Japanese war, when Japan occupied parts of China.

Always tough for that man to visit monuments to that war. Conjures memories of his family from that period - older brother who starved and died a painful death from starvation and dystrophy during the nazi Siege of Leningrad, grandmother ruthlessly killed by the nazis and their accomplices, all his uncles wiped out.

Here he is paying his respects.

Who is threatening America? You live on a separate continent. There are no enemies on your borders. There are neither Russians nor Chinese. But you have spread all over the world like bugs in Paris... You are the threat to the whole world. You, not being neighbors with Russia, through information intervention and rewritten school textbooks, turned Ukraine into a worst enemy. Without you there were no problems between Russians and Ukrainians. If you move away from the borders with Russia, the war will end and people won't die, Ukrainians and Russians. You have distorted everything in this world.

I thought you were a reasonable person

And yet now he has unleashed the worst fascist war of aggression in 80 years. Guess it isn't tough enough for that war criminal.

And for those of the bean counters out there that come to the realization that a China-Russia partnership is not in the interests of the collective west and attempt to coax Moscow out of it with future concessions or inducements (or threats), there is news for you:

Russia will not be a turncoat, as so happens easily in other countries. Never have, never will.

Japan and Europe are US allies, not playgrounds for dictatorships. The era of dictatorships will be over as soon as Russia and China are contained.

You are the threat to the whole world.

Russia is not the whole world. It may be a large part of the vacant land of the world but not a significant part of the population.

You, not being neighbors with Russia, through information intervention and rewritten school textbooks, turned Ukraine into a worst enemy. Without you there were no problems between Russians and Ukrainians.

Sure it isn't Russian fascism that has done that? How exactly did the US get such excellent propaganda into Ukrainian schools?

If you move away from the borders with Russia, the war will end and people won't die, Ukrainians and Russians.

So if NATO surrenders, then Russia will stop killing Ukrainians. Makes a lot of sense and shows the true nature of Russia.

You have distorted everything in this world.

No I would say Russia declaring itself to be at war with the west has distorted everything.

Saying Russia will not leave its dependency on China is like a prisoner saying he will not leave prison. You're just not important enough to miss, though.

The governments of China, Russia, led by despot dictators, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese leader Xi Jinping could well in the need to enforce a blinkered ideologically, to dominate, control, to impose with autocracy, brutality, and eventually global conflict to succeed in such a frightening endeavour.

This alternative, to so called U.S. global influence, is a chaotic, corrupt, world of harsh repression, and a gross violation of basic human rights.

As with all despots before, Hitler, Stalin etc, appeasement leads to cowardice weakness of spirit and will only embolden these tyrants.

China and Russia…North Korea as well.

So you admit that Russia is threatening America but Biden's involvement in Ukraine is irresponsible? Shouldn't we want to weaken our adversaries, particularly when they start horrendous wars that threaten our treaty allies next to Ukraine?

China and Russia have forged a partnership which is unprecedented.

Yes, never before in its history has Russia been so utterly dependent on China. Hope Putin enjoys running the client state for his master, Emperor Xi.

The two most dangerous and insecure men in the world, making possible even more oppression and bloodshed.

You're probably right. Putin will undoubtedly stick to his path of evil to the bitter end.

There is no doubt the government of China is responsible for flooding the US, through Mexico US postal service with Fentanyl...2019

Fentanyl Flow to the United States

This is the depths that the Government of China will stoop. First a devastating pandemic, followed by wave cloud of Fentanyl.

Time to wake up.

Yes.

What am I supposed to be looking at here? It was wrong for Biden to not push for Putin's removal?

Should have never gotten involved.

Says what credible authority?

Shouldn't we want to weaken our adversaries, particularly when they start horrendous wars that threaten our treaty allies next to Ukraine?

Hmmm…Russia seems to be quite well actually.

You do realize that Russia is poorer than all advanced economies, right? That's why we don't worry so much about China's allegedly stellar growth.

Definitely won’t be seeing a lot of EVs in that country.

Economic progress is not measured by lack of EV penetration. Another way we are weakening Russia is by causing Russian mothers visit large new sections of graveyards. It will cause them to rethink further aggression.

You can, bien sur. The three you listed can as well. But only your country set military bases in huge quantities all over the world.

Russia does this, too.

They also invade weaker neighboring countries who pose no threat to their own security.

Believe it or not we have planes and ships that travel great distances that can reach the U.S. easily.

You can, bien sur. The three you listed can as well. But only your country set military bases in huge quantities all over the world.

We have treaty allies all over the world. Had to be that way because 1) you were launching a worldwide ideological struggle for failed communism and 2) there would have been even more suffering in the period from 1945-1991 and today if we hadn't blocked you from absorbing more countries on both ends.
