China and Russia joint military exercises to prepare for a long time, but the exercise time is still sensitive, recently, China and some neighboring countries, particularly the re-intensification of the Philippines and Vietnam due to the islands in the South China Sea territorial disputes and the outbreak of . Last week sent a large warship to the Huangyan Island, the Philippines, a serious confrontation with China’s ocean surveillance ship. China has been in efforts to recover the South China Sea, most of the island’s sovereignty, but was willfully obstruct several other countries of Vietnam, the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The rich oil and gas resources in the South China Sea has exacerbated the territorial dispute, the gratuitous interference of the United States is fueled.

Although this is not the official point of view, but may be intentional release of balloons. These comments are usually Chinese military teaching or scientific research institutions of the generals after retirement, but then public opinion have a greater impact. Under these conditions, Russia should balance their policies, whether it is in China, or relations with the U.S., we must first defend their own interests. (Compiled: woodlands)
