On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the war of the Chinese people against Japan and the end of the Second world war was held in Beijing the parade. However Western favorites for some reason decided not to participate in the feasts.
The 2nd world war was the bloodiest incident in the history of the world's population and has demonstrated how fragile it may be our world. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the end of fighting in the Chinese capital hosted a major parade. It was the leaders of Belarus, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, the Czech Republic, the Republic of South Africa. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin has held a place of honor next to the President of China XI Jinping.
With all of this from the leaders of all States, traditionally relevant to the Western orbit of influence, at feasts there were only Czech President Milos Zeman. Similar attitude, said many experts, is just offensive, not against politicians of China, and the memory of the victims of the events of those terrible years.
"The absence at the ceremony Western favorites, of course, offensive to the Chinese people and the peoples of the region, which was badly damaged during the Second world war. The United States wants to influence the UN and even control this company. The assumption that the parade in China in honor of the 70th anniversary of the victory over fascism is considered a kind of violation of neutrality is quite comical rhetoric and propaganda of Washington" - quoted by Russia Today the coordinator of the anti-war ANSWER coalition, Richard Becker.
Asia Times journalist Pepe Escobar, moreover, believes that China wanted not only to mark the memorable date, but also to demonstrate to the world that is not in place. Speech, first of all, the ability of the Armed forces powers to protect their own frontiers.
"They declare to the world: "In our area with us joke is not necessary. What happened 70 years ago, when we were very weak and experienced a "century of humiliation", ordered to live long. We stepped into the future. If you have any projects on our account, I advise you to first pay attention to what we have", - said the expert.
All the weapons that were represented at the parade, made in China, said Pepe Escobar. "Yes, some may say that it is largely made on the basis of foreign models. So what? Especially you need to pay attention to the fact that China itself produces weapons and military equipment. All this is considered part of the reorganization of the people's liberation army of China," he said.
