Vostok has always been the N1 problem in Russia.

Sackerson has a piece up about China encroaching on Russia, not quite like Mexico encroaching on the States, as this is a takeover thing, like Islam, whereas the Mexicans are escaping and wanting to integrate.

It’s a post by Sackers which seems eminently sensible on the surface but in fact, comes down to treason on the part of Moscow.  Let me explain.

The negative language

Derelict ex-collective farms have been taken over by Chinese. There are many mixed marriages and Chinese is the principal foreign language taught at school and university. Here, all Chinese speak Russian and the Russians know a few words of Chinese.

The positive language

The development of the economy depends entirely on relations with China.

This is how Esau lost his birthright to Jacob.   It does not depend on Chinese.  It depends on the Russians extracting the digit.

Now let’s look at this line:

Their presence is beginning to worry the Russian authorities, who see them as new competition.

No one, no one at all, comes into Russia, across its borders, without Moscow knowing about it through the statistics from the region.   Our presence [English speakers] began to worry the Russians too and we were kicked out.   Russia controls who crosses its borders so it is not right to say they’re sitting back, thinking, “Oh, look at all these Chinese sweeping across.  Dear me.”   It doesn’t work like that.

That xenophobic language is completely contradicted by the reality that the Russians need the Chinese here.

No it bloody well isn’t.   Not at all.   Not in the least.  There are two major “narodni” fears among Russians and you can’t live there very long without these coming through loud and strong.   N1 is the Chinese encroaching in the East [Vostok] and the other is the Americans coming through Europe.   There is a third but it’s been less of a threat but is shaping up to be one again – Germany.

The fear of Britain is cultural, not military.   English has gripped the motherland as a language and we are not a profession liked by Moscow.   LIked by the locals but not by Moscow and many people in general.

Now there is a situation in Siberia which Russians have always feared and though they always had this concept of the red hordes sweeping in – and remember it’s happened in history before so they have national memories of these things – then this post by Sackers, if it had gone national in Russia, would have created a storm of protest.

And it’s looking very much like the same brand of treason as Brown/Heath/Wilson selling out Britain to the EU.   [I'm speaking of the treason of Moscow here, not of Sackers, who is but the scribe who's seen the story.]

There is a concept in Christianity of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.   What it comes down to is that you know what’s right, what is so and you deliberately turn your back on it, once having enjoyed its fruits or even its possibilities.

Ditto in Russia.   Knowing full well that so many died in the GPW, that Russia went into Chechnya and Afghanistan, that the Gruzini [Georgians] are a problem in the country, knowing that Vostok has always been a major fear of the people, for authorities to allow these Chinese in is a gross dereliction of duty to the people of the land.

I’m not saying that the Chinese would not make the economy better.   I’m saying that the people of this nation, Mother Russia, are quite clear on this, as clear as we can be that the EU is a bad thing for our country – actually, much clearer because here there are still some blind people, as with the global warming scam.

The authorities are turning a blind eye to the will of the people.

    I read Sackerson’s piece, but I still don’t feel I understand Moscow’s angle on this. Do they care so much about such a remote bit of the economy that they are prepared to allow the Chinese to run it?

    Isn’t this just a symptom of what always happened, happens and will happen? Humans move through migration, mass-migrations, invasions no matter what causes it: Scarcity, war, the Huns, opportunities (gold in California), … It’s the story of our human past. At the end we always move and/or we are invaded.
    Wasn’t Eastern Siberia Asian (China/Mongolian) or belonging to native tribes before the Russians? I’m not sure but it would surprise me if it would not be the case. The Chinese threat is not new. I’ve been hearing that from a Mongolian (present Mongolia/former USSR). They see the Chinese as the biggest threat to their autonomy. I don’t know it is a real threat or imagined. I only know that Chinese have been moving for centuries and I don’t think it is any different now.

    “… a piece up about China encroaching on Russia, not quite like Mexico encroaching on the States, as this is a takeover thing, like Islam, whereas the Mexicans are escaping and wanting to integrate.”

    … a take-over thing? I thought the US took over California from Mexico. Sure it is now American but Latino influence never left… Integration? Well the southern states are blended which is quite logical. Los Angeles has about 50% latinos.

    Russia fearing the UK? Really?? Why exactly? The other way round works ok as there sure is a is a hint of mafiarchy with wmd about Russia.

    Can’t they afford new maps without all those pink bits, or is it some weird thing like the French.. fear of English or maybe Franglais or the equivalent?

    What happens when the polulation in the region is majority Han? Something like that was part of the justification for the start of WWII.

    Thin edge, AKH. They know China’s foot-in the-door policy well.

    Daniel – yes, that may be so but the analogy was to point out the fear factor.

    Moggsy – culturally, yes they do. Many in the country love Britain – after all, it was a country with an Empire. They can’t understand what a hole it is now due to the socialists and I didn’t try to explain.

    Actually my piece is a translation of a French article, though I’ve added the map because for me a picture is worth etc.

    How many Chinese need to cross the river before they ask for a vote on regional self-determination?

    Doesn’t Vladivostok look vulnerable, geographically speaking?

    How valuable would Eastern Siberia be to China in terms of natural resources? And defensive reach?

    All true.

    Moscows problem is the failure of its population to reproduce effectively. I don’t have the stats to hand but their population is in absolute decline.
    If you were the offspring of someone sentenced to internal exile/deportation to some far flung military/industrial colony by Uncle Joe wouldn’t you be doing your best to get back west and would you care less who then occupied the arid space you left behind?

    James you said the thing about this irrational Russian fear of the UK.

    But firstly. I had understood education in Russia had been good and anyway surely the general populace’s opinion would not count one way or the other, just the president/priministers. Surely they are reasonably educated and briefed better than Mitt Romney.

    Banned – needs a post.

    Moggsy – the leadership is with the grace of the siloviki – these are not nice, educated people.
