China is still buying Russian weapons but many experts say it is not for the purpose of copying weapons as before but for the purpose of tightening relation ties as well as the military exercises partners.
According to agreed sources, Russia will complete a contract to supply 24 Su-35S multiroles fighter jets to China. Under the terms of the agreement, it is highly probable that China will continue to order additional Su-35S and even larger numbers and possibly up to 50-80 pcs.
This is similar to the S-400 Triumph long-range air defense missile system. Previously, China had already ordered dozens of S-300 anti-aircraft missile battalions and the ability of China to order the name. Fire S-400 with numbers over 10 battalions

With its strong military and financial resources, it will not be surprising if the Chinese Army looks like India in the near future. It is armed with a “United Nations” different origin.
In addition, one thing that China buys Russian weapon also comes from diplomacy, China wants to be ally with Russia in regional conflicts, typically the South China Sea dispute as well as counterparts in the fight against the power of America
But in the immediate future, regional countries must pay special attention to the purchase of additional Russian weapons in Russia, of which Moscow, of course, can not ignore it because more than anyone knows the ambition of the ” when Beijing claimed sovereignty over the vast territory of the Far East of Russia.
