    Given the nature of the two regimes and the historical antagonism of the two countries, I would not expect any deep ties to develop during this little USA hiatus. A pivot suggests more to me than just a big gas deal. As far as I know neither Russia nor China has any true “allies” in the world. Hopefully we will still have some left on January 20, 2017.

    I would not trust China, if I were a Russian statesman. Before it is over with I would not be surprised if NATO comes to Russia’s defense after a Chinese invasion. Of course that is just a wild speculation.

    Russia will have nobody to complain to when China annexes Siberia.
