“Chinese Husband + Russian Wife = The  Perfect Combination.” An advertisement sponsored by China Radio International  in Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, recently sparked controversy  among Russians. The advertisement said that, “Sino-Russian cross-border  marriages are the perfect formula.”

Chinese husbands live a healthy lifestyle,  help with housework, and take their marriages seriously, said the  advertisement. Russian women are educated, beautiful, and hard-working, and  Chinese husbands will give them independence and freedom.

Netizens React
The advertisement was quickly picked up by  Russian social media. Netizen “Giza,” wrote, “It is puzzling that a Russian  government-run newspaper would publish this kind of 'advertisement.' The  'advertisement' encouraging beautiful Russian girls to marry Chinese men will  affect Russia's population growth.”

Netizen “Andrea,” said that the  advertisement is nothing surprising. She believes that Russians and Chinese  make a good match for marriage and many Chinese men are very happy after  marrying Russian women.

A “Discussion Topic”
The advertisement was posted as a  collaboration between China Radio International and Rossiyskaya Gazeta.  Project leader Mr. Jin stressed that the piece was a “discussion topic,” rather  than an “advertisement.” The Chinese and Russian governments hope to promote  online communication between young people of the two nations as part of the  “Sino-Russian Youth Friendship Exchange Year.” The two sides plan to launch 100  online “discussion topics,” on culture, education, livelihood, employment,  love, ideals, and more. The post on Chinese and Russian marriages is one of  these topics.

Jin said that this one topic went viral  among Russian youth over a short period of time. This of course, led some to  misunderstand the post. “A lot of Russian young people thought that the post  was an advertisement about getting married to Chinese men. People wondered, why  must Russian women find a Chinese man to marry?” said Jin.

Jin said that this discussion deviated from  the original point of the post which was: Chinese men are diligent about  housekeeping, Russian women are cheerful and generous. “This is what many  countries believe, we're just putting it up for discussion,” said Jin.

The Perfect Match?
Actually, Russian women marrying Chinese  men is nothing new. In 2013, Russia's RIA Novosti published an article titled,  “Chinese husband + Russian Wife: A Perfect Match.” In the article, a Chinese  man married to a Russian woman said that, “Russian women are better than  Chinese women in many aspects.” The article added that Russian women are  interested in Chinese men because they do not drink and they work hard. Chinese  traditional ethics are more attractive to them then Russia's culture of  masculinity.

In 2004, Russian women Maria Liu spoke of  her marriage to a Chinese man to the Global Times. Liu said,  “Transnational marriage comes down to fate. Love happens regardless of  nationality and ethnicity.” She said that Chinese men love their wives deeply  and care for their kids, but life is often full of struggle and they are  sometimes a little tired. “After all, everything they do is for their family.”

Nothing new. Chiang Ching-kuo, the son of Chiang Kai-shek who studied in Russia, met and married a Russian woman.

Exceptions are everywhere but in absolute number terms what is the percentage of such marriages ?

Please note that KAZAKHS {Hāsàkè Zú in Chinese (哈萨克族)} are not called "RUSSIANS" in Russia

Well-wishers would win more friends.
Cross-border marriage is the contiuation of sound marriage between peoples with different nationalities and customs.
Only those with narrow minded would object suck kind of critical exchanges.
