China provokes fish crisis in Russia

There may be other motives behind China’s refusal to buy Russian fish, allegedly due to the detection of coronavirus on its packaging. This conclusion was made by experts of the British non-profit financial analytical center Planet Tracker, whose report was drawn to the attention of RBC.

British experts suspected that by provoking a fish crisis in Russia, Beijing intends to secure the right to get it on its own in Russian territorial waters. The Chinese authorities understand that the income from catching pollock is higher than from just processing. The organization recalled that China has already done this in Latin America. His fleet began to fish squid directly, although previously he only imported them.

By August 2021, 1.24 million tons of pollock had been harvested in the Far East, which is 16 percent less than a year earlier in the same period. China accepts only refrigerated pollock containers going through Vladivostok, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky or South Korean Busan. The problem is that waiting in line for unloading refrigerated containers in Chinese ports stretches for a couple of months. The ports for transport and refrigerated vessels are still closed.

Pollock is the most important fish for the Russian industry. This year it accounts for 55 percent of the total catch. At the same time, China was previously the main buyer of pollock – about 60 percent were exported there.

Biden’s speech on the situation in Afghanistan. The shortest retelling

We came to Afghanistan 20 years ago to reach out to those who organized the 9/11 attacks and make sure that Al Qaeda cannot use Afghanistan as a base for attacks. We did it. Our goal has never been to help Afghans build their state.

Americans should not fight and die in someone else’s war if Afghan forces are unwilling to fight on theirs. We spent a trillion dollars and gave them everything they needed to determine their own future, but we cannot give them the desire to fight for that future. If Afghanistan is incapable of resisting the Taliban itself, then neither a year, nor five, nor twenty years of additional US presence would have helped them. It would be a mistake to try to remake a foreign country with endless deployments of American troops.

Participation in this conflict is not in the interests of the United States, our rivals – Russia and China – would be glad if we continued to spend billions of dollars on Afghanistan. I do not like what is happening there now, but I am confident in my decision. Our task is to carry out the evacuation, after which the war will end for us.

Al-Qaeda and Taliban are recognized as terrorist organizations and are banned in Russia.
