Sino Soviet Border Agreement

Damansky, or Zhenbao Island along the Ussuri River, was the site of the incident at Damansky Island in 1969. After the conflict, the Chinese seem to have de facto retained control of the island. 52 The report of an Austrian correspondent on a trip through Soviet Central Asia in 1967 provides some interesting information. First, the Soviets built an Iron Curtain-type barrier along the Sinkiang border. Second, the Russians described the Chinese public execution of Chinese citizens along the Amur and Ussuri rivers, on one occasion observed by 20,000 people, and another incident near Chita, where 30,000 elderly people were reportedly pushed to the border by Chinese military authorities. Third, in September 1966, Moscow reportedly delegated responsibility and authority in dealing with border incidents to local commanders. This agreement would have two advantages for Moscow: it could reject the local commander if he did not maintain order and allowed him to act quickly and independently if necessary. See Portisch, Hugo, in the Viennese courier (translated into Atlas, bd. 14, no. 3 [09 1967], pp. 15-19) Google Scholar.

64 The Economist of 22 March 1969 notes that at that time the Soviets had 300,000 men along the border (25-27 divisions, against 15-17 divisions previously) and that the Chinese had 500,000 men (40 divisions) in the same region. The latter figure probably excludes the production and construction body. Le Monde, 14 years old. April 1969, citing “informed Austrian sources,” saying that symbolic contingents of Warsaw Pact troops will soon be heading to the Soviet-China border. If these figures are not totally false, Chinese reinforcements did not follow Soviet operations: a ratio of 5 to 3 men does not overcome Soviet obesity in terms of weapons, air force logistics and rapid reinforcement capacity. The last unresolved territorial issue between the two countries was settled by the 2004 Supplementary Agreement between the People`s Republic of China and the Russian Federation on the eastern part of the Sino-Russian border. [15] In accordance with this agreement, Russia transferred to China part of the island of Abagaï, the entire island of Yinlong (Tarabarov), about half of bolshoi ussuriysky Island and some adjacent river islands. The delegation was ratified in 2005 by both the Chinese National People`s Congress and the Russian Duma, ending decades of border conflict. The official transfer ceremony took place on site on 14 October 2008.
