Russia and China announced plans for an intensified program of military cooperation yesterday as part of a burgeoning “strategic partnership”. As many as 25 joint maneuvers will be staged this year in a demonstration of strengthening ties between Moscow and Beijing, Russia’s Defense Minister, Anatoly Serdyukov, said at a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Liang Guanglie. Mr Serdyukov gave no details of the planned exercises but said that Russia was “satisfied with the level of our military and military-technical cooperation” with China. The talks took place ahead of a meeting in Moscow today (wed) of defense ministers from the Shanghai Co-operation Organization (SCO), seen as an emerging rival to Nato. The Kremlin underscored the SCO’s growing military role, saying that the meeting of defense ministers was one of its “most important activities”. The SCO held its first military exercises in 2007, when Russia’s then President, Vladimir Putin, praised the organization “growing defense potential” Russia and China are founding members of the body along with the Central Asian states of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. India, Pakistan, Mongolia and Iran have observer status at SCO meetings. Russia and China staged their first joint war games in 2005 after resolving outstanding border disputes between them. However, Moscow views Beijing as a lucrative market for defense exports and has sold billions of dollars of weaponry to China since the collapse of the Soviet Union ended their Communist rivalry...

Well, I suppose it had to come sooner or later. More or less this could be setting up for WWIII or else just more flexing of the muscles that will boil off after a while. Here is to hoping that nothing major comes out of this for the sake of keeping the peace for a while at least.
Lately some Russian newspapers post photos of these strange Chinese dolls. You can see the scanned piece of article from one Russian regional newspaper. The reason for the panic is that in Russian children toy stores have appeared strange Chinese dolls looking like a girl-doll but if fully undressed there can be something found that better would suit for a boy-doll.
People demand to band those dolls from being sold on the territory of Russia and claim that it maybe done on purpose by some evil forces from outside of Russia in order to form a bad perception of female/male orientation from the early age. Below is the more detailed photo of those strange Chinese toys freely sold in Russian kid stores

Theres NO number in 5. Trust me, I have 20/20 vision.
I also doubt this is a true 'military' test. More like a joke you would receive in your email..
In response to the OP, such an alliance fits well into end time prophecy ie Russia invade Europe, confident that China will take no action, but are then double-crossed and invaded from the rear by the horde. Lets hope this is still some years away..
RUSSIA’S NEW “ARCTIC” FORCES AND THE GOG-MAGOG INVASION STRATEGY
April 12, 2009
Russia has announced that it is creating a new arctic branch within its military forces. Ostensibly, this is to defend disputed mineral resources in the polar region. However, I smell a concealed intent, given the latter-day prophecy of Ezekiel 38. The first link mentions this new Russian “Arctic” force, and it also mentions that the effects of global warming may open up “new shipping lanes” in the polar regions. These “new shipping lanes” could be used for a military invasion of North America as well as for commercial maritime traffic.
Ezekiel 38:15 prophesies that the nations of the house of Israel (the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel which never returned to the Promised Land and never merged back into Judah) will be attacked from the north by Russia, China and their allies at the end of the latter-days of our age. The nations of the house of Israel are the USA, the UK, Scandinavian and European nations, etc. [For abundant secular and biblical evidence supporting this conclusion, please listen to Parts One and Two of my audio messages at the “speeches” link at this website–those desiring in-depth information can obtain it in my books available at the “books” link.]
If you look at a round globe, you will see that it is a very short distance from Russia to Alaska and the polar regions of Canada. In order for Russia and its allies to insert large numbers of troops, tanks, planes, etc. into North America, Russia and China will need to have a force which can seize and secure a wide variety of airports and seaports in the polar regions of North America through which its military forces can enter in an endless stream and surge southward into the heartland of Canada and the USA. If nuclear weapons are ever eliminated, this invasion becomes quickly “doable” for the Russians and their “Gog-Magog” allies.
The second link reports that the Canadian government states that it will defend against this effort by Russia to “militarize the North.” At least Canada can see the threat posed by a Russian military force trained in polar warfare. The US government has likely not even given a thought to this danger yet. Of course, not all Russian troops need be trained in polar warfare. Only the forces which would initially seize Alaskan and Canadian facilities in the opening phase of the new global war need be trained in polar conditions. They would seize and hold those regions while all other Russian and Chinese soldiers would be quickly sent southward in gear suitable for warmer climes.
