    so when oil/gas can not fill up Muscovite budget, Kremlin kleptocracy (thugs) begin to sell Siberian riches and Siberia in general to China. whats funny here, that Muscovite state propaganda, hides this information from ordinary people. question: when the Hans get back their outer Manchuria which was stolen from them by Muscovite empire only in 1860-1900?

    "
    The authorities of the Chinese city of Lanzhou, located in Northern Gansu province, are considering the possibility of building a pipeline to supply water from the Russian Lake Baikal, TASS news agency reports.

    Such a project would solve the problem of water shortage in the arid region of China, where the annual rainfall is only 380 mm of precipitation, the newspaper notes. It is assumed that the pipeline with the length of 1,000 km would start from the south-western tip of the lake, pass through the territory of Mongolia, Hexi mountain pass to Lanzhou.

    I assume the Russians will put a water meter on it and charge a severance charge by the gallon?

    this is horrible. Lake baikal is the largest freshwater lake on the planet, somehow pristine despite russian scarred earth policies. Home to life forms that confuse the best biologists. I suppose it was only a matter of time before this happened. If you want a perfect example of the end result of an unregulated economy, look no further. Its things like this that remind me that communism sucks just as bad and worse most of the time as capitalism.

    It is much better to make that area arable than doing land grabbing by both China and Russia.

    I agree with you up to your last sentence. Neither Russia nor China are communist any longer, and the US is fast leaving capitalism - all are or are heading toward - in the case if the US - oligarchies. In the US the push to oligarchy is led by the GOP.

    China is taking a sensible precaution, since if global warming continues they will probably lose much of the glacially supplied water they receive from the Tibetan mountains. At least they are making a mutually developed arrangement instead of starting a war over it.

    IMO, though, Russia needs to control the amount removed and base payment on that, in a fee system similar to gasoline pricing--by supply and demand criteria.

    Water is becoming a big problem in the world, I know that parts of California is sinking the way Venice is. They're pulling out too much water. I always wondered why with all the summer rains in our east coast jungle, they never built a water pipeline heading westwards.

    As for China, it needs water desperately, but Russia has to be careful with the lake. It is losing water, and has an ecological problem as well. I'm sure though Moscow will monitor everything. I know Putin won't even allow GMO products into the country, and is determined to have the healthiest food in the world. In contrast, our farms because of the GMO's are now producing super weeds and the cost to fight them are creating real hardships for the farmers.

    I guess water now can be added to all of Russia's other commodities ... like for instance; wheat, gas, timber, oil, coal, copper, gold, diamonds... and the list goes on and on. Cry litwin, cry!

    What an idiot Navalny is. He thinks the propaganda lies will work in Russia the same as it does with the Democrats in the US.

    Medvedev just banned Navalny on instagram.

    The Russians love the cold, and the Chinese don't. Makes a difference you know?

    Guess what Litwin? Moscow started a homestead policy... similar to the one the US had to get the lands settled. The Russian government is giving out free land as long as it's put to use within 5 years. They say a lot of British are interested in it, but I think you have to be a Russian citizen.

    And talking about Russian citizenship, Moscow is fast forwarding citizenship to anyone who had ancestors that lived on any lands that are now part of the Russian Federation. They are also offering dual citizenship automatically to any child with one Russian parent... that way they can put them under the protection of the Russian state.

    That would be a tragedy, for the Chinese as well...people that don't pay full value for something tend to overuse it instead of conserving it.

    My impression is that is what Putin had to allow in order to gain stability and power. Too bad....

    Don't believe it! I'm sure he's not that wealthy. I do know though that the Western leaning Medvedev and the ones under him have large incomes compared to those who are under Vladimir Putin with his meager wages.

    As for Navalny, aren't there corruption charges against him? Strange how the Obama/Soros/Clinton administration always leaned towards criminals. Is it because they can be bribed ...or are they getting kick backs.

    The only Russian I really know anything about is Putin, and that is mostly because of the videos of him talking that you have posted on here.

    He is a really intelligent and pragmatic person, and IMO we can thank him that we're not already in WWIII.

    And, a moment of your attention - people in China seek a way to supply reasonable amounts of drinkable water to an arid region. They look into various - even most desperate - options. How that is, exactly, wrong..? Which part of that is wrong? That chinese try to supply water to people, or that they look at various options for that..?

    Lake is unique, yes - but that does not mean people should not even think of using it's resources. It's just that scientifically it is more valuable, than as water reservoir. This is why - you'll never believe that - it still remains relatively untouched by civilization. Wha-at a surprise, right?

    Russian Federation cannot serve as example of communism since it is a democratic state for 26 years. Did not knew some people need that being pointed to.
