Российско-китайские отношения: по лезвию бритвы.

В ходе расследования очередного скандала о наркотрафике из Китая прозвучало имя бизнесмена из Санкт-Петербурга Чэнь Чжигана. 
Все ли так хорошо в российско-китайских взаимоотношениях, как это старается представить китайская сторона, попытался разобраться наш корреспондент.


«Стратегическая привычка»


Налаживать отношения с Поднебесной в некотором смысле вошло у нас в привычку, начало пути было положено еще в 90-е. Сделан ли прорыв в отношениях, и насколько позитивно эти отношения развиваются для России, вопрос, скорее, риторический.


На сегодняшний день эти отношения одни называют «стратегической привычкой» и «пропагандистской формой сотрудничества», когда многочисленные официальные встречи, совестные форумы, конференции, показательные учения создают не более чем информационный фон, за которым, собственно, пустота.
Другие в анализе взаимоотношений двух стран выделяют взаимную ненужность в свете отношений каждой из сторон с Западом. 
Стоит отметить, что и раньше, исторически, Китай и Россия не имели длительного союзнического взаимодействия.


Но на данный момент, что бы там ни утверждали, и Пекин, и Москва одинаково понимают необходимость китайско-российских отношений и всестороннего стратегического взаимодействия и партнерства.


Другое дело, что китайская сторона порой эту необходимость понимает явно превратно.


Китайская мечта


Современная внешнеэкономическая стратегия Китая «Один пояс и один путь» во многих своих направлениях включает в свою орбиту и российские регионы. И эту стратегию мы уже можем наблюдать в действии: так, Минобороны Китая и Москвы запланировали на текущий год масштабные мероприятия (Источник ). Глава Минобороны РФ Сергей Шойгу особо отметил, что «в настоящий момент российско-китайские отношения находятся на высоком уровне и продолжают стабильно развиваться: Россия и Китай готовы совместными усилиями защищать мир и укреплять международную безопасность».


Постепенно налаживается сотрудничество между двумя странами в туристической отрасли (Источник).


А в прошлом году, например, глава Минпромторга Денис Мантуров и Мяо Вэй подписали межправительственное соглашение о совместной разработке, производстве и послепродажному обслуживанию нового широкофюзеляжного пассажирского самолета, который составит здоровую конкуренцию Аэробусам и Боингам, в Китае этот самолет получил рабочее название С929 (Источник ).


Словом, на сегодняшний день примеров позитивного и взаимовыгодного двустороннего сотрудничества между Россией и Китаем предостаточно.

Но все ли так гладко в этом сотрудничестве, как пытаются представить обе стороны? На фоне масштабных соглашений отдельные происшествия, шлейф от которых явно ведет в Поднебесную, конечно, теряют свою значимость. Но тот момент, когда любое событие повторяется неоднократно, становится уже не отдельным моментом, а тенденцией. Спешим заметить: тенденцией крайне неприятной.


Российская реальность


В то время как на политической и экономической аренах обе страны стремятся к налаживанию сотрудничества и честному диалогу, российские криминальные сводки все чаще содержат информацию о происшествиях с «китайским привкусом».


Так, еще в 2013 году в новостях упоминалось о деятельности незаконной группировки, вывозившей из России в Китай десятки тысяч кубометров леса (Источник ). Да и российские земли, как видно, для китайских бизнесменов кусок лакомый, особенно, когда эти земли можно получить в обход закона и налогов (Источник ).


Впрочем, природные ресурсы – это только малая часть поставленного на широкую ногу бизнеса.


Стоит копнуть глубже, и картина становится совсем уж неприглядной, потому что на «нижнем уровне» так называемой китайской бизнес-пирамиды в России – дома терпимости, созданные специально для китайских туристов (Источник ). А кроме этого - огромное количество ресторанов и сувенирных лавок, рассчитанных на китайских туристов, работающих по принципу взаиморасчета, в результате чего треть всех доходов уходит на теневой рынок (Источник ).


И, пожалуй, самое страшное в этом порочном китайском круге – наркотрафик. Не проходит недели, чтобы в сводках происшествий не упоминался очередной эпизод с разоблачением той или иной цепочки наркотрафика из Китая в Россию: это и поставки накотических веществ (Источник ), и распространение их на территории всей страны (Источник ).


Не нужно обладать дюжим умом, чтобы, сопоставив ряд криминальных сводок, прийти к выводу, что за рядом происшествий стоит некий петербургский бизнесмен китайского происхождения. Параллель между кличками и интерпретациями имени вполне прозрачная даже для дилетанта: «Жиган», «Жи-Хан», «Чжихан», - все это явно производные от Чжихан Чэнь. Тем более, что другого крупного питерского бизнесмена китайского происхождения с таким именем просто не существует.


Обвинение китайскому бизнесмену пока еще не предъявлено, сам же он от комментариев отказывается.


Мы же со своей стороны искренне надеемся, что справедливость будет восстановлена, виновные наказаны, а отношения нашей страны с Китаем в дальнейшем не будут строиться на криминальной «подложке».

Who's that Pokemon??
So, here is the first kigurumi I've made to fly under the title of "Otter Spirit Creations" (my new website/portfolio/commission site :P). My friend matty wanted to pose in the pictures more than I did, so I let him do it. XD I'll be taking commissions for these soon, and I have one more personal one to do, and one a friend is commissioning :3

It's Meowth!!!!Collapse )

Updates agaiN!
Ah hahahahaha I need to update this thing more often lol. So, Jeff and I moved into the cutest apartment in Natomas. :D We're mostly moved in, sort of, but we still have to clean out the other one. Bleh. Not to mention the unpacking XD I packed it all, Jeff, Matty and Rax moved it all, and now I get to unpack it. :P I'm planning a party once we get this placed a bit more in order, so keep on the look out for that.

Oh Man! I messed up! So, when I was ordering Cable, I wanted to get the channel that Penn and Teller Bullshit! Was on, but I accidentally ordered Cinemax instead of showtime. Looks like I'll be watching them online a bit longer until I can get this fixed up. :(

I've been making some more wedding plans, still trying to figure stuff out, and think about where I want it and what I want to wear XD We've decided to nix the Vegas idea, but we've settled on a theme, and a date :3 Halloween theme, October 31st 2011. We've decided not to tell most of our families for another six months at least, probably a year. Hopefully April and Alissa can keep it a secret for that long XD. Hopefully I can too. We're probably going to keep it pretty small, close family and friends only, but man I have such awesome friends that have volunteered to help out. My friend GunnerScott offered to organize catering along with my friend Kino, and my friend Oliver offered to play piano. Awesome! I think costumes are going to be encouraged but NO fursuits, or any costume that completely obscures the face. I have no idea what I want to dress up as. We're thinking of each picking a character, and wearing wedding wear inspired by the character for the wedding, and the real costume during the reception. Jeff has chosen Sulu (duh), but I have no idea what I want to be. e.e

I think that's the bulk of the recent happenings. I'll post more if I think of anything. :p

What the hell?1
I'm gaining. D: How the fuck? Since I've joined spark people I've gained 10 pounds. what the fuck am I doing wrong. I'm doing more exercise, mostly walking. My eating habits have changed drastically, for the better I thought. So what am I doing wrong? Since moving to Sacramento I've gained 40 lbs now. I hate this. I also think all that crap about exercising makes you feel better is just that, crap. I feel worse, because I feel incompetent, and all the exercise just made my joints hurt and made me tired and hungry. I hate this , why can't it just go away?

I will not change who I am to suit those who would prefer to only hear what they want to hear. I will say what I mean and I mean what I say. If you are being an ass I will tell you plainly that you are being an ass. I'm not mean about it, but I'm not the sort of person to blow smoke up your ass.

I know this isn't the best way to win friends and influence people, but I'm not sure I really care.

Where have I been?
Okay, massive update ahoy!
Holy crap I've been missing from the internetz lately. I've been lurking, checking messages and reading your guys' posts and the like, but I just have been to busy IRL to post anything. Well, I've finally caught a bit of a break and can now update ya'll on where I've been.

So.... Some of you may know that I had to get oral surgery to remove an infected tooth, and that was fun (not really). Although, actually I think my mouth hurt worse when the tooth was in than after it came out. So I was pretty drugged up for a week or two. Then of course, when it rains it pours and right after I had my tooth out I had an 8-day bout of nausea and vomiting, which concluded with 3 days of migraines. I ended up going to the ER because the pain was so intense. The loaded me up with fluids and migraine stuff.... imitrex and magnesium I think... Next day saw my doctor, she felt around and there was some tenderness in my pancreas, which she thought could be pancreatitis. I had my blood drawn for that but never heard back so I assume it's not, but I'd still like to know what the hell, right?

Let's seee.. Ah, school ended a while back. I got A's again, except for an incomplete which I'll turn in work for next semester. I've decided to take an aqua aerobics class over the summer to go hand in hand with the change in my diet, should be fun. Still deciding what I'm going to do for next semester. I could transfer to AI this year, but it's a matter of paying for it. I still need to take some classes at city, so I'm thinking of taking English and challenging Japanese 1, so I can get on to Japanese 2. I'll probably need to study this summer to do it though I'll see if I can get George to practice with me.

Oh yeah! My job! So right now I'm temping at Markstein Beverage Company, they are a beer distribution company that specializes in Budweiser. I kind of do glorified data processing really, but they pay me 12$ an hour so. I still don't know whether I will be a regular employee or not. The guy who's job I'm doing had an anyerism (sp?) burst in his brain and he was narrowly spared by a genetic defect that caused some of the veins in his head to create a hammock like structure in his skull which kept the blood from going all over his brain and what not. So Shit. Wow. Well, yesterday we found out that his Doctor is allowing him to go back to work. They say they are going to keep me around for another two weeks or so to make sure nothing goes wrong with him before they let him lose on his own. So we'll see. If worse comes to worse though, my boss said she would give me a good recommendation back to the temp agency so they can place me in another job. I'm kind of torn. I like my job, and hope I can stay, but I don't want to wish bad on this poor guy. You know? Oh well, maybe the agency will find me better job if it comes to that. We'll see.

And Jeff got a new job too! He starts today! I'm so proud! For those not in the know, my boyfriend Jeff moved in with me, and then a few weeks later got laid off from his job. So, I've been supporting the both of us for a bit, but he got this job he's real excited about, and it couldn't have come at a better time!

So yeah, Jeff and I are doing great, we both have jobs, we're also planning on moving out of Downtown Sac (because I hate it so >.< ) and into Natomas (The surrounding suburb for those outside of the area). I also found out my driving record is clean once more, and the accidents have been removed (yay! Lower insurance rates!)

So.... Saturday was my birthday, I'm 23 now. Old. XC
My friends took me to hooters (lol) and then to see Star Trek! Awesome. I hella loved that movie, want to see it again. They lacked a lot of John Cho as Sulu, but man John Cho = <3

So today i went to the website to go get some wallpapers, and the wallpaper they have for Sulu looks like he smells a fart. (See webcam image on my page) They have another on on the Dossiers page, but my edited one makes me giggle, so I'm keeping it for awhile. I will eventually have art to post, just give me a minute, I'm trying to finis my finals.

Sup Furry fans!
Alright, I'm offering icon commissions, thought you should know. Here's what they'll look like:



Here's How much they cost: 10$

If you'd like one, you can either send me an email (batcatinc @ gmail dot com) OR you can send me a note over on my FA page: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/pulsifer

This not should contain a visual reference(s) and a color you would like in the background. If I accept your commission I will respond with a link to my paypal account and an estimation of how long it will take to finish. Okay? Okay.

You'll get a 300x300 version which I'll post on FA (and you are free to post as well with a link back to my gallery) and 100x100 version for iconination use. I wouldn't recommend using these as 50X50 as they look kinda squished, but if you want to I won't object. Thanks dudes!

Woot! Temporary job!
And an online one too. I'll be a chacha guide. Basically, I log into the site, and people text questions to chacha, and then I get messaged, find the answer, and send it back to them as quick as possible. Also they provide a lot of resources for finding information so I can search right on their site. Pretty cool. Depending on what the pay is like I may keep this job until the end of the semester, but at least it's something while I continue looking for other work. Apparently, it's about $0.10 per question answer with a potential range of 3$ to 9$ an hour depending on how fast I am. that's decent. If I spend my downtime with my laptop next to me shouldn't be a bad gig.
