23% of Russians living on the territories bordering China have a negative attitude towards the Chinese
5. National culture
Russian culture is original, but in many ways syncretistic: due to its location, it was influenced both by Asia and Europe. However, the impact of these two cultures on Russian culture is by no means identical. Unlike Eastern culture, the western culture has been in contact with Russian culture for a long time, and therefore imposed a greater imprint on it.
6. Rotate the history
After the collapse of the USSR, territorial and border disputes between Russia and China became more tangible, as did the theory of the "Chinese threat" that added fuel to the fire. Far Eastern politicians resisted the demarcation of the borders until the last, articles frequently appeared on the regional and federal press devoted to the remaining problems of demarcation of the Russian-Chinese border. In addition, some figures in Russia still remember China's incident on the island of Damansky (1969), considering it an act of China's invasion of the territory of modern Russia.
Today, voices are again heard demanding to increase the military presence in Western Siberia and the Far East to contain the "yellow threat". This behavior is due primarily to historical reasons - Russia at one time cut a piece of Chinese pie, and now fears that China will be able to return these primordial-Chinese territories to its fold with the help of labor exports.
7. Russia: between Europe and Asia
So, according to a poll conducted in the regions of Russia bordering China, 38% of respondents are absolutely indifferent to China, 23% have a negative attitude to the Chinese, and they can boast of knowledge of Chinese cultural figures such as Lu Xin (writer) or Qi Baishi (artist) only 27% and 15% of people, respectively. In the late 1980s, when a Chinese writer came to visit the Far East, local residents with a smile asked him: "Tell me, do cars drive in China?" How can we talk about the development of economic interaction in a situation where Russians know almost nothing about China and the Chinese and do not understand them?
8. Closed openness
The Chinese and Russians belong to different races. The differences and contradictions between races are more serious and deeper than the contradictions between different peoples. With the coexistence of people of different races, their cultural and other differences accumulate, and various contradictions arise that can lead to a conflict situation.
