My guess is they are strengthening Russian - China ties, allying with the newest and most powerful superpower, China, is a shrewd gambit IMO.

China has failed to support Russia over Ukraine.
China took Russia for a ride over their first oil agreement.
China took advantage of Russia over their second oil agreement.
Russia had to sell a percentage of their state oil company to china per agreements.
China has failed to recognize the illegal occupation / annexation of Crimea.
China has failed to recognize the rebel occupying governments in Donbass and Luhansk.

China is not going to run to Russia's defense should Russia start a shooting war. The Chinese government has its own internal issues that would be exacerbated by focusing their attention on Russia's 11th hour foray into the insane.

LOL. Putin imagines China has their back, one dictator to another. Nyet, China has China's front.

If Putin gets stuck in a war, I'm sure the Chinese will be happy to lend Russia money, at a high interest rate, and with some other terms like even cheaper oil and more ownership of Russian strategic industries ..... and there's always Vladivostok on the table ...

US is going the way of the Dodo, Americans are set to become a 3rd word nation within 20 -30 years and will be sending out the begging bowl to both China and Russia in due course.

China is a second world nation quickly becoming a first world nation. Russia is a second world nation, degrading into a third world nation.

US Air Force plane in Kharkov

You do realize that C-17 Globemaster III landing at Kharkov, Ukraine belongs to AUSTRALIA!

You can see the prancing horse marking on the tail fin as it comes into land.

Royal Australian Air Force C-17s repatriated bodies from MH17 and also flew equipment in and out for the multinational investigation team.
