This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the victory over fascism, the year World War II ended. For Russia and China, this year has a special significance. Our countries were allies in the struggle against Nazism and Japanese militarism. Due to their unprecedented courage and mobilising all our resources, our peoples managed to survive and won a great victory. The war of the Chinese people against Japanese militarism was an important part of the Second World War against Fascism. The Chinese Communist Party stood at the head of a broad national front resistance to Japanese occupation. China bought Victory at the cost of great sacrifices. We remember that. In the most difficult days, the USSR came to help the Chinese people, sending military experts to fight. Amongst them were future Marshals V I Chuikov, P S Rybalko, and P F Batitsky. We delivered a significant number of aircraft, artillery, tanks, and miscellaneous equipment and ammunition to China. We appreciate the fact that the armed struggle of the Chinese people restrained the aggressive ambitions of Japan against the USSR.
These days, we’re celebrating our common victory; together, we honour the memory of those who gave their lives… both Soviet and Chinese soldiers and partisans. The KPRF appreciates the good relations between our countries and peoples, which have roots in feelings of sincere friendship and affection, deep respect, and trust. We remain convinced that on the day of the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and of the victory over the Japanese militarists that, once again, we’ll manifest a common will and a determination to fight for peace and international security. The Presidium of the KPRF Central Committee sends its sincere greetings on the 70th anniversary of the Victory to the Chinese Communist Party and to the Chinese people, as well as its wishes for further success and prosperity to the hardworking and intelligent Chinese people.

This is why the American actions against BOTH Russia and China are delusions and inane. The USA could win against either Russia or China, but only if it keeps the other party neutral and quiescent. That hasn’t happened. The Anglos will find out that their hubris has a very high price, indeed.
