Partnership of Great Powers

Russian-Chinese relations are moving to a new level

Partnership of Great Powers

The Crimean crisis and events in Ukraine marked the start of a new historical era. In new realities, the world's geopolitics will be determined by strong and independent countries. According to the leading Russian orientalists, Russia, of course, should become one of the main players.

On April 25, at the Institute of Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, two books were presented at once: "Russia and China: Strategic Partnership and the Challenges of the Time" and "China on the Path to Revival" by the Director of the RAS IFES, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, State Prize laureate, Honored Scientist of Russia Mikhail Leontyevich Titarenko. Leading Orientalists and staff of the RAS IFES were invited to the presentation.

The book "Russia and China: Strategic Partnership and Challenges of the Time" has become an organic continuation of a comprehensive study of topical geopolitical problems of development and security of Northeast Asia and the APR as a whole, which are becoming the core of the new world center. The author examines the role of comprehensive strategic interaction and partnership between the two great powers - Russia and China - in strengthening peace, prosperity and security in the region. M. L. Titarenko pays special attention to the results of the XNUMXth CPC Congress, which introduced a number of new tasks and guidelines into the theory and practice of reform policy and the general strategy of China's socio-economic development.

In the course of the event, A. Lomanov, chief research officer of the Center for Comparative Studies of Civilizations of North-East Asia of the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, noted the incredible symbolism of the date of signing the book "Russia and China: Strategic Partnership and the Challenges of Time" to the press - just before the referendum on the status The Crimea. According to Lomanov, the book will become a kind of guide to action in the new post-Crimean era, which will open fundamentally new vectors and horizons for development to Russia.

All speakers noted the importance of understanding the philosophical subtext in Russian-Chinese diplomacy and expressed the assumption that the current political situation will become another impetus for the development of good-neighborly relations between the two states. The high level of mutual understanding between the countries and the significance of the published works were also appreciated by the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of China to Russia, Mr. Li Hui, who attended the presentation. During his speech, he said that he had learned a lot about the XVIII CPC Congress due to the fact that the author draws attention to interesting nuances and views the situation from a different point of view, through the prism of classical Chinese philosophy. Li Hui also noted that today Russian-Chinese relations are at the best development stage in history and expressed confidence that in the future mutually beneficial cooperation will become even closer.

The release of the second book is timed to the 80 anniversary of academician M.L. Titarenko, a Soviet and Russian orientalist, a well-known researcher of philosophy and spiritual culture of China, who heads the RAS IFA since 1985. The publication is a collection of articles by the staff of the Institute for Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Titarenko’s colleagues, orientalist scholars, and is a review of the Institute’s research spectrum over the past years.

Both publications have a high value in defining the modern realities of Russian-Chinese relations and will become the key to understanding the prospects for their development. The hero of the day himself also formulated his approach to understanding China, which, according to the scientist, always avoided alliances and relied solely on his own resources in everything. This approach of M. L. Titarenko finds true for Russia, which, in his opinion, should not abandon its Asian roots and will be perceived by other players in the geopolitical arena only when it conducts a strong and independent policy.
