The Sino-Russian military bond not only lay the basis for China’s weaponry to date but also its strategies and theories.
During this period, Wang notes that the development of Sino-Russian military relations was mainly concentrated on the following areas: Firstly, in the field of military technology. Cooperation between the two countries began due to military technology blockade of the Western powers in the 1990s. China then decided to introduce a number of Russian military technology and equipment in large quantities. Military technology cooperation became the highlight of the talks between the two sides and Russia became the only source of advanced weapons and equipment for the Chinese military.
