    RT news gonna RT news. Russian politicians gonna russian politicians. Nothing to see here.

    "It's amazing!".. Yeah sure it is.. Very amazing.. Those imaginary companies are so amazing.
    Really what chinese companies can compete with companies like Siemens and Bayer? And even IF such companies existed, and even IF such companies had claimed an interest in investeing in Russia. Then it's still a big fucking loss for Russia if those european companies pull out.
    It's still big investors leaving the country. It's not like there's only room for some fixed amount of investors and chinese companies would fill the vacuum. Investors leaving is negative. Period. Especially when those investors hold names like the ones mentioned in the article..

    In short: A complete load of bullshit.

    What is stopping the companies from investing now? You do know investments aren't finite? They might try and buy low to get greater value from the investments but it isn't going to fill the gap.

    Meh China is still very much behind the EU in virtually everything.

    It would be a serious downgrade for the Russians.

    People here, probably the same people in this thread, were saying the gas deal wouldnt go through and laughed at rt for reporting it early. Then when the deal was going diown people here were laughing at Russia saying China would bleed them dry. In fact just a few monthsa ago plenty of the regular posters here were saying Russia and China would never side together and laughed at anyone who said they would.

    Everyone has the right to invest their money as they please. All this standoff garbage was a waste of time, instead they could have negotiated like adults now the children are fighting for investments as usual. :icon_chee

    The Gazprom deal has been worked on for the last decade. No one actually knows how much China is paying, but the fact it got pushed through quickly as soon as the sanctions popped up implies Russia did somethign to sweeten the deal for the chinese. Unless china decided to help russia out of the goodness of their hearts, which seems unlikely. China isnt siding with anyone, they are taking a deal where they can find one, same as always.

    . . . and I am still laughing at you if you think the gas deal, which had been in the works for nearly a decade, and was only really affected by the Ukrainian crisis in that Russia ended up with worse terms than it might of gotten if it wasn't so desperate, is a sign that Russia and China are forming a geo-political alliance beyond the limited spheres where they share a mutual interest.

    China and Russia will vote together on the UN when an oppressive regime is under fire from the Security Council, and they will engage in trade where it is in their best interests. But your fairy tale of a Sino-Slav geopolitical alliance isn't coming true. China isn't so stupid as to shun the rest of the world for Russia. Instead, they'll continue to play neutral, with their best interests sometimes aligning with Russia, and sometimes with the rest of the world.
