Analyst: Movement of Russia and China is a reaction to big processes  rather than a movement towards each other 

ArmInfo. The movement of Russia and China is a reaction to big processes rather than a movement towards each other, Editor-in-Chief of "Russia in Global Affairs"  magazine, political analyst Fyodor Lukyanov has told ArmInfo. 

"The matter concerns the current order of the new global space  conditioned by the shift of economic capacities in the world. Beijing  and Moscow are really becoming not simply the leading forces of  global economy, but they are first of all becoming much more  expansive," he stresses.  

He thinks over the past two centuries the West has been the most  expansionist part of the world, but now it is thinking more of its  own problems, while China, in turn, is expanding the space of its  interests towards the West. 

At the same time, he notes, Russia is turning towards Asia for  intrinsic reasons.  Lukyanov thinks Eurasia, in its new  understanding, as a space of economic and political development, will  be partly conditioned by this opposing movement.   

Lukyanov is convinced that the Russian eastward vector and the  Chinese westward vector do not run counter to each other, but they  are complementary. The interests of such large countries as Russia  and China cannot coincide fully, but he thinks that it is the growth  of coincidences that makes up the pledge of formation of the new  Eurasian space.   

"At the same time, the Chinese-Russian relations cannot be a zero-sum  game. Now the hard process of adaptation is underway and it is not  known how it will end. However, there is no clash of Russia and China  in Central Asia despite the western experts' forecasts. This causes  the West's surprise. Therefore, the Russia-China relations are quite  a good experiment, whose results are far from being certain," he  notes.
