Business Insider: Russia and China are close to creating an alliance against the US

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping

According to Western analysts, Russia and China are getting closer and becoming more and more aggressive in their joint plans to challenge the US leadership in the world.

What is known about the threat of the Moscow-Beijing alliance to the United States

Journalists of the publication, citing leading Western analysts, point out that the alliance between the Russian Federation and China will represent the most significant threat in the world to the United States.

It is obvious that the two states consider themselves military partners, and that this partnership is becoming deeper and more experienced, even if it is not a formal alliance in the Western sense, the CEO of the Atlas Group Jonathan Ward emphasizes.

Over the past two years, the Russian Federation and China have conducted joint military exercises in the Sea of Japan.

In addition, Russia has transferred technologies related to the construction of submarines to China, which can give the Chinese army an advantage in confrontation with the United States and its allies in the Pacific Ocean.

Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping have promised to deepen cooperation in developing high-tech weapons.

Russia also sold Su-25 aircraft, Mi-17 helicopters and S-400 air defence systems to China.

Why the Russia-China alliance will become the greatest threat to the United States

Although the leaders did not sign a formal military alliance, such moves should cause serious concern for the US and its allies.

A full-scale Sino-Russian alliance would pose a threat to the United States unlike any it has faced since the end of the Cold War, according to a recent article for the Center for European Policy Analysis.

The Congressional Committee on the Strategic Posture of the United States said in October that it now faces threats "fundamentally different from what it was in the past, even in the darkest days of the Cold War" due to the rise of China and Russia.

The Russia-China axis poses a huge threat to the United States, given that we will have to worry about security in both Europe and Asia, as well as in the Middle East, with the risk of being in a difficult position while Beijing and Moscow coordinate efforts to achieve their regional ambitions, Jonathan Ward notes.
