The Russian regime is already absolutely dependent on China, – Piontkovsky/Collage Channel 24
Because of the sanctions, Russia has become dependent on China, because most countries have limited cooperation with the aggressor country. And then China can take some territories of Russia for itself.
Russian publicist Andrey Piontkovsky told Channel 24 about this.
According to him, China is one of the main beneficiaries of this war. The expert says that he has already benefited – Russia has weakened so much that it has become a helpless appendage of China.
The combination of sanctions and the military dependent on China for everything. After all, the main blow of the sanctions is not financial, but technological,” Piontokovsky said.
He claims that Russia has become a helpless hostage of China.
“And China will first fulfill its immediate demands on the territory, thrown back by the Chinese Empire in the 19th century, and then de facto “swallow” the entire territory of the Far East and Eastern Siberia,” the publicist believes.
In his opinion, if the Americans refused to support Ukraine, and we were defeated, China could have taken Taiwan in a week.
