Just before the Russian military would start its biggest ‘War Games’ since 1981 in Siberia (together with several detachments of the Chinese army), head of the Kremlin Mr. Vladimir Putin hosted the Eastern Economic Forum in Wladiwostok, to which also Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping was invited.

The two leaders clearly hit it off, taking time to make some pancakes together under the watchful eye of trained chefs, eat red and black caviar and toast with a glass of vodka.

The Carnegie Moscow Centre Think Tank claims that the Russian-Chinese exercises show that the government in Moscow wishes to express its understanding of currently seeing a potential foe in the US and a potential friend in China.

Today’s meeting between the two leaders comes at a time of continued US-led sanctions against Russia and a trade war with China that seems to be ever heightening.

The Russian Ministry of Defense declared that some 300,000 troops, 36,000 vehicles and 1,000 aircraft would be taking part in the Vostok 2018 exercises.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Xi, Putin meet as Russia kicks off biggest ever war games <a href="https://t.co/B4xC3gv64b">https://t.co/B4xC3gv64b</a> <a href="https://t.co/Lwbv6SX36U">pic.twitter.com/Lwbv6SX36U</a></p>&mdash; Al Jazeera News (@AJENews) <a href="https://twitter.com/AJENews/status/1039522288742420480?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 11, 2018</a></blockquote>

As stated, thousands of troops from China (and Mongolia) will also join in, although the Chinese Defense Ministry wanted to point out that the war games were not "directed against any third party" and would focus purely on "defenses, firepower strikes and counterattack."
