The Russian weapons have proved uneffective in the Ukrainian battlefield. Putin estimated that in 72 hours, his army could occupy Ukraine, but now a year has passed and the Russian army still has not advanced anything, except for some places that have been occupied before. Russia is poor in technology, no longer a big player in the world’s weapons field.
Russia is a country offering weapons around the world, including China and Vietnam. With such inferior weapons, Vietnam does not have a strategy to replace it with modern weapons so the country is more like a prey for China. There is no need to argue that General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong’s faction has long been loyal to Russia and China. They used Russian crazy thinking to make Vietnam dependent on junk weapons, which is very dangerous.
On February 17, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong directed the press to remain silent on the anniversary of the Chinese invaders’ invasion of Vietnam, massacring women, children and the elderly, destructing economic establishments, collapsingd bridges and burned villages… However, in order to please China, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong mistreated the national heroes who died on that day. An ingratitude could not be more ungrateful. Mr. Trong sold the sacrifices of heroic martyrs and soldiers fighting that day, to please Beijing.
Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong, the proponent of domestic furnace burning, is also the leader of the group advocacing for close ties with Russia and China. His people have the same policy. The growth of the pro-Russian and pro-China group makes Vietnam increasingly lose its autonomy and become more dependent on these two ferocious powers.
On February 17, Mr. Andrey Vladimirovich Yatskin, First Vice Chairman of the Council of the Russian Federation, on the occasion of his working visit to Vietnam, met with top legislator Vuong Dinh Hue- Chairman of the country’s highest legislative body National Assembly (NA) to discuss promoting bilateral cooperation between Vietnam and Russia in the oil and gas and energy sectors.
It is known that Russia has given a hand to Vietnam to run for the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2023 – 2025 term, and now, the Russian side is coming to Vietnam to work “earn some porridge”, by persuading the pro-China-Russia group to buy Russian weapons and energy. In a situation where Russia is isolated from the free world, and the pro-Russian pro-China group connecting with the dictator Putin’s side, is pushing the country to face the risk of isolation.
Currently, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong is aggressively blocking the arms purchase line between the Vietnamese Defense Ministry and Israel, intending to block the connection of Mr. Pham Minh Chinh’s faction with the West. Vietnam’s defense budget is nearly $8 billion, Russia only supports one vote for Vietnam to join the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2023 – 2025 term, but has access to the huge budget mountain of the Ministry of Defense of Vietnam.
The country of Vietnam is in dire need of getting rid of Russia’s junk weapons. Thoibao.de has had a number of articles talking about the Kilo junk submarine, as if to have a project to make money. This type of submarine is very outdated and cannot cause any problems for China. This project can only fool the gullible, not the knowledgeable.
Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong’s faction is gradually controlling the Four Pillars, and in the near future, it is very likely that Mr. Vo Van Thuong will become the country’s President. Consider that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong’s faction holds 75% of the seats. It is unclear how Mr. Pham Minh Chinh will do to fight against Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong’s side, protect Nguyen Thi Thanh Nhan?
Israeli weapons are very modern, Israel has demonstrated it in response to the West Bank Islamic organization launching rockets at Israeli territory. Israeli weapons have accumulated artificial intelligence, and Russian weapons are just old-fashioned scrap iron blocks. Vietnam under the hands of a pro-Russian-and-China, the country is not safe.
