    Upadek świata dwubiegunowego może zostać uznany za nowe otwarcie w stosunkach chińsko- rosyjskich. Sytuacja międzynarodowa na początku lat 90. umożliwiła odnowienie i normalizację stosunków politycznych między tymi państwami oraz zapoczątkowanie współpracy na kilku płaszczyznach. Rozwijanie kontaktów zarówno politycznych, jak i gospodarczych okazało się być procesem długotrwałym, warunkowanym przez liczne wewnętrzne i zewnętrzne czynniki. Celem artykułu jest analiza ewoucji wzajemnych relacji, motywacji działania, źródeł współpracy oraz jej znaczenia. Biorąc pod uwagę rosnące strategiczne znaczenie regionu eurazjatyckiego, szczególnym aspektem w kontekście współpracy Federacji Rosyjskiej i Chińskiej Republiki Ludowej jest jej istota dla bezpieczeństwa międzynarodowego. Przeprowadzana analiza będzie uwzględniała zwłaszcza współpracę rozwijaną z wykorzystaniem Szanghajskiej Organizacji Współpracy.

    The People’s Republic of China is one of the states focusing intensively on building its soft power and shaping its international image. However, China’s image is still negative and primarily based on stereotypes. In recent years, this country is willing to change such perceptions and present itself as an efficient, intensively developing, capable country that is much more than just a global production plant. The article aims to review China’s different manifestations of development aid regarding changing this type of public diplomacy and its meaning to the Chinese government. Is it only motivated by good intentions, or maybe its goal is to only provide an advantage to China? It is evident that owing to significant development, China needs to expand its economic contacts. However, the tested hypothesis states that behind Chinese development aid, political motivation is hidden as well. The research is based on content analysis of official documents and Foreign Ministry’s statements referring to development aid.

    The article aims to analyze the role of economic sanctions in the People’s Republic of China’s overall approach to achieving its security objectives in the international arena. During the last two decades, Beijing used this instrument on numerous occasions to exert pressure on a varied group of actors. China’s current strategy toward a range of disputes and conflicts it is engaged in (the South China Sea territorial disputes most prominently stand out) is often described using the popular vocabulary of “hybrid warfare” or “grey zone conflicts”. Putting the conceptual complications aside, the author agrees that the PRC’s approach can be viewed as part of a growing trend for great powers to employ what can be called “hybrid strategies” toward its opponents. As part of a broader category of economic statecraft, economic sanctions form an important element of this approach. Considering current scholarship on both “hybrid” (or “grey area”) warfare and economic sanctions, the article answers the question of why the PRC increasingly resorts to hybrid strategies (including economic coercion) and identifies the main characteristics of Chinese economic sanctions. It also provides preliminary conclusions on their effectiveness.

    The People’s Republic of China’s Response to the Hybrid War in Syria

    The main purpose of the paper is to present the most important determinants and dependencies characterizing the policy of the People’s Republic of China towards hybrid war in Syria since 2011. The paper starts with the definition of hybrid war and its most important determinants. In next part of the article, the role Syria that plays in China’s political strategy has been described. At the outset, relations between Beijing and Damascus during the Cold War and immediately after its completion have been analyzed, when the Chinese side approached with a considerable distance to wider involvement in the Middle East, including Syria, having own internal difficulties, tense relations with the United States and the pro-soviet and then pro-russian position of Damascus. Next, Beijing’s views on the outbreak of the war in Syria have been mentioned, pointing to the most important determinants of the Chinese politics and the ideas for resolving it proposed by the Chinese Communist Party. In addition, goals that the Middle Kingdom wants to achieve in Syria have been presented in the global and economic aspect. The attitude of the communist power to the problem of rebuilding Syria has also been put into account. In conclusion, it has been addressed whether in the era of China’s growing assertiveness on the international arena, a modification of the Chinese position, should be expected.
