  •  Chen Ou    


Russia is the largest neighbour country of China. Since the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, Russia has always played a significant role on China’s political security. By Hu Jintao’s age, China’s rapid rising and Russia’s regaining brought new characteristics of the Sino-Russian relations and further influenced China’s political security. International structure constructs the transregional “high cooperation and moderate competition” strategic relations between Russia and China. There are several strategic overlap regions between Russia and China. Facing Russian political challenges on China’s security, China had a clearer image of the Sino-Russian relations. At the same time, on the level of policy, China broadened national interaction to promote mutual understanding and strategic trust and expanded mutual economic ties with Russia.
