    Russia is already a Chinese province – the Far East and Siberia, stolen from China 160 years ago, being retaken by China without a single shot fired, and tens of millions of Chinese crossing the non-existent Russian-Chinese border. Russian army is 60% not only Muslim but more importantly, Central Asian, the Russian language, rejected by 40% of non-Russian citizens of Russia, fast becoming the local dialect, the Russian economy is back to the Stone Age and will start recoving in 30 years time We haven’t seen a single picture of Moscow or St. Petersburg, not a sigle report by the Western journalist. The only infrastructure in Russia is called THE GULAG SYSTEM, ready to open its doors for millions of Russian slaves.
