For Russia the cooperation of its borderlands with the North-Eastern European Union countries and the northern provinces of China is of great value. With all the intensity and importance of ties with the People's Republic of China, the interaction with the European Union brings much more benefit to the Russian Federation. Main investments and up-to-date technologies come exactly from there. Cooperation with the European Union is based on the common civilization (Christian) values. Russia should strengthen the European vector of its policy in order to reduce the danger to be transformed into a resource appendage of China.
