Russia’s future in Central Asia on the background of large-scale buy-up of Central Asian energy resources by China

The leader of PRC, Xí Jìnpíng visits former republics of the Soviet Union and signs energy transactions in the amount of almost $100 billion, including the $15 billion contract in Uzbekistan, the $30 billion contract in Kazakhstan and the $50 billion contract in Turkmenistan.
