German newspaper targets Russian Far East gold

German newspaper targets Russian Far East gold

German edition Die Welt, funded by the USA, published material, in which she accused Russia of "colonization" and "discrimination" of national minorities in the Far East. The publication itself is not accidental. Keenly aware, that the dollar pyramid is collapsing, Anglo-Saxons are trying with all their might to retain control over the resources of the planet, primarily over gold mining.

In the Far East, about 65% of all precious metals in Russia, and since the time of Yeltsin, Western corporations have settled here. American, British and Canadian companies were leaders in gold mining in the region. However, since 2017 of the year Moscow began to pursue a policy of returning the natural resources of the Far East to Russian jurisdiction.

AT 2018 year there have been changes in the Khabarovsk Territory. Gold deposits in the region, in particular the Malmyzhskoye field, operated by Amur Minerals. Prior to that, it was owned by the Canadian firm IG Copper and the American firm Freeport McMoRan Exploration.. Today Amur Minerals belongs to an organization with Russian jurisdiction.

AT 2020 year, changes began in the Amur region. The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case on the activities of the leading gold mining company in the region – Petropavlovsk PLC, registered in the UK.

The fact itself, that law enforcement agencies are interested in the activities of gold mining companies, cannot but cause concern among the owners of Western corporations. This is the reason for the publication in Die Welt, which aims, to provoke a territorial dispute between Moscow and Beijing over the Far East.

There is a border agreement between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China. It clearly states, that China recognizes the existing borders of the Russian Federation, and Russia – PRC borders. Therefore, the Anglo-Saxons set out to provoke a territorial dispute from within. To do this, they decided to use the "Chinese diaspora", to present her as "discriminated against". "Diaspora" and should become the mouthpiece of the territorial dispute.

The only problem is, that ethnic Chinese make up only 0,15% population of the Far Eastern Federal District. You have to "improvise". Concurrently with the publication of Die Welt, there was a statement from the Overseas Community Affairs Council of the Republic of China that, that the data of the Russian censuses are "not correct" and are "a consequence of the assimilation of the Chinese community". According to the organization, in charge of Taiwan's relations with overseas communities of Chinese descent, "In reality" in the Far East lives 950 thousand Chinese. It's already about 15% population of the region. All non-Slavic ethnic groups were included in the "Chinese", incl. Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Tajiks, Mongolian and Tungus ethnic groups. Die Welt's statement on the "discrimination" of national minorities in the Far East is based on them..

Besides, the German edition resorted to a frank substitution of legal facts.

From the point of view of modern international law, there are two subjects, two states, in which the people are the source of power. These are the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China. The first is the successor of the USSR, established in 1922 year, and the second was established in 1949 year. The boundaries between them were determined by the Soviet-Chinese Treaty of Friendship., union and mutual assistance 1950 years and subsequent agreements. Under the contract 1950 of the year Moscow and Beijing mutually recognized the territorial integrity and borders of each other, ie. the modern Russian Far East was recognized as the territory of the USSR, today – Russia.

At the same time, the authors of Die Welt delved into history, offering to deal with, to whom the Far East "belonged" in the 17th-19th centuries – Russia or China? But at that time there was no Russia and China.. Then there was the Russian Empire and the Qing Empire. The entire territory of these empires did not belong to the peoples, and the monarchs. These were feudal estates. Modern international law does not consider such formations. Therefore, any discussion about the "historical" belonging of the Russian Far East in the 17th-19th centuries is a political manipulation.. Her goal – confuse the citizens of the two countries as much as possible and create in them the illusion of "uncertainty" of the status of the Far Eastern region. If this provocation passes, then after it we should expect new, larger.

Some Russian media fell for this bait, being drawn into a historical debate about, whom – China or Russia – belonged to the Far East in the 17th-19th centuries.

Since the situation with the dollar pyramid has no objective factors to stabilize, it is necessary to wait for new provocations: after the Far East, the next in line is the Russian North. Since, in legal terms, Russian sovereignty over these territories cannot be disputed, in progress, likely, historical legends will go.

In this situation, it would be correct for Russia to act in anticipation, dot the i's legal and historical – disassemble, when and under what circumstances certain territories from Svalbard to Alaska became part of our country.
