Around three million Czarist Russians were killed and/or wounded (fighting as an Ally of the UK) during WWI between 1914-1917! During 1917 – the Russian
BEIJING, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) — Leaders of many countries and international organizations have recently telephoned or sent letters to Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and President of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), to warmly congratulate on the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the PRC and wish the upcoming 20th National Congress of the CPC a full success.
Kim Jong Un – General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) – on behalf of the WPK, the government of the DPRK and the people of the DPRK, extended warm congratulations to Comrade General Secretary Xi Jinping, the CPC, the government of the PRC and the brotherly Chinese people.
Kim said that under the leadership of the CPC with the Comrade General Secretary at its core, the Chinese government and people have built a moderately prosperous society in all respects and embarked on a new historical journey of building a modern socialist country in all respects.
This single act of constructive ‘Internationalism’ instantaneously opened the door wide for friendship without borders to develop – whilst simultaneously rescuing the people of China (a process in motion since the 1949 Socialist Revolution) from the stagnant morass the ‘Nationalist’ (KMT) government had dug! General Secretary Xi Jinping, however, has issued a friendly (but timely) reminder to the Chinese people, stating that effective ‘Internationalist’ communication is not a static process! It cannot rest on its laurels, it cannot be a fond memory of the past, but must be a continuous and dynamic expression of the collective will of the Chinese people as expressed through the declaration of Chairman Mao Zedong in 1949 – ‘Today, the Chinese People have stood up!’
This is why, particularly in the post-Covid-19 environment, Socialist China is developing remote technology the function of which is to detect ‘at a distance’ (as ‘early’ as possible) any threats to environmental balance and the health of human populations. If Socialist China can lead the way in environmental and population health monitoring – then Socialist China can assist humanity by sharing this knowledge at the earliest possible opportunity, and fulfil its international responsibilities promptly and effectively!

The cultural and religious baggage within Asian cultures generally means that it takes decades to finally arrive at the ability that Systema teaches from the first day of training (and only then, if the practitioner of the Asian arts has found a competent Master). This signifies the ‘Socialist’ egalitarian nature of ‘Systema’ where there were no coloured belts representing a fascistic and hierarchical grading system – as is common within Japanese culture. In the original Soviet – (and now ‘Russian’) – martial system (Systema), the highest form of inner and outer awareness, body-alignment, organisation and movement, as well as advanced technical manifestation – is taught first without any hesitation, whilst an individual’s psychological and emotional (spiritual) understanding of what a practitioner is physically experiencing has to catch-up over the many years of training.
