Yan Xuetong: A friend told me that Putin said Russia would not join the Chinese alliance because Russia does not participate in any alliance that is led by the other side. This interpretation means that Russia realizes that the disparity in power between China and Russia will continue to expand. This leads to two questions: 1. A non-aligned bilateral structure is a strategy for the weak. Has Putin recognized the Sino – US polarization trend in the international environment? 2. Putin has long considered Russia a super power among the developing countries. Will he follow the non-alignment strategies of 1980’s India’s and 1970’s China?
