Amid LAC Faceoff, Russian Embassy Shares Video Reminder Of Victory Over China In 1860

In a big strategic signal, the Russian Embassy in India on Friday tweeted a video celebrating the 160th anniversary of the founding of Vladivostok. As this city was under Chinese control until 1860, it evoked a backlash from social media users in China. In this battle, the trio of Russia, France, and Britain had defeated China.

However, some people in China claimed that this land was annexed by Russia during the Tsar era after the country’s defeat in the Second Opium War. The tweet assumes significance at a juncture when India and China are involved in a faceoff at the Line of Actual Control. This is being perceived as a manifestation of the ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’ between India and Russia.
