Xi Jinping Attends the Opening Ceremony of the Winter
Olympics in Russia
The twenty-second Winter Olympics (XXII Olympic Winter
Games) will be held in Sochi, Russia, on February 7.
On February 5, Chinese President Xi Jinping left for Russia
to attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
Why does the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) support
Russia politically, militarily and ideologicaly?
Let’s take a look at the experts’ analysis.
Xi Jinping’s attending the opening ceremony of the Winter
Olympic Games is the first time that a Chinese leader attends
major sport event.
Recently, official media high-profile praised it as Olympic
diplomacy, sports diplomacy, attention on Russia and
compared it with 70’s ping-pong diplomacy which influenced
diplomatic relation between China and the US.
Taiwan Chengchi University School Institute of international
affairs Professor Ding Shufan believes that China has a need
for it as a military strategy.
Professor Ding Shufan said: “There must be a collaboration
purpose such as the closer cooperation in the military or
security to counterbalance the United States.
Because China is facing the Diaoyu Island problem, it might
be better to get support from Russia against the alliance system
of the United States and Japan.
This is a very important reason for China."
Since 2012, the Wang Bo incident caused an intense faction
struggle within the party; the Jiang faction stirred up trouble
abroad to divert attention, creating tense relations in the
Northeast and Southeast Asia.
Xi Jinping visited Russia first after he came to power.
It was widely interpreted that the CCP tried to associate
with Russia to stand against Europe and America.
Global Information Freedom movement website founder
Zhang Xinyu analyzed,that the CCP’s ideology is threatened
by other countries; Xi is looking for friends in Russia.
Zhang Xinyu said: “Russia suppressed Chechnya, so it has no
problem with the CCP’s repression in Tibet and Xinjiang.
It’s actually against humanity in the western world.
Now, he taks opportunity to go flattering since the Olympics
will be held in Russia."
Since Russia organized the Winter Olympics, the international
media didn’t commend the new Russia and its leader Vladimir
However they did report a large number of scandals in Russia,
such as: abuse of power, human rights violations, environmental
issues, corruption, media censorship and ethnic issues.
Since the Winter Olympics opening ceremony is approaching,
the Russian authorities intensively suppressed activists.
Russia was subordinate to the former Soviet Union, and the
former Soviet Union was the largest communist totalitarian
country in the world before the breakup.
Russia was independent on June 12, 1991 The 61-year-old
incumbent Russian President Vladimir Putin was working at
the former Soviet Union Committee for State Security for a
long time. Working within the KGB system.
After Putin was selected by the first Russian Federation
President Boris Yeltsin as successor, he and his Prime
Minister Dmitry Medvedev repeatedly swapped political roles.
This was strongly criticized by the Western media.
The Chinese joked that they play a “two-person show" in the
China Foreign Affairs University former professor Hu Shigen:
“They saw the Soviet Union as a big brother from childhood,
so Putin had a good role model to learn from.
Putin played the two-person show and some tricks under
Russia is a semi-democracy, an immature democracy."
Zhang Xinyu said that the CCP believes in the philosophy of
struggle that is incongruous in the universal values; so they
must choose Russia that has something in common as friend
rather than the free world.
Zhang Xinyu: “The main reason is that the CCP is a malignant
tumor, a monster.
It can’t understand such normal human values
in Western Society.
There is only armed struggle and Hegemony. It believes the
world is a zoo because it is an animal.
So it is now looking for Russia."
The 2014 Winter Olympics will end on February 23. Xi
Jinping will finish his visiting on the 8th end and back to China.
