All the "Unequal Treaties" signed by China with the European imperial powers were officially dissolved following the Communist takeover in 1949 - with the exception of huge amount of Chinese territory that Russia annexed from China under the Treaty of Aigun (1858) and the Treaty of Beijing (1860). As a result of those two treaties and some other smaller treaties, China lost over 1 million km² (400,000 square miles) of territory in Manchuria (called "Outer Manchuria") and another half million km² (200,000 square miles) in the western regions to Russia. The combined 1.5 million km² comprises an area three times the size of Spain.

As the result of the loss of "Outer Manchuria" to Russia, China lost the port of Vladivostok, the island of Sakhalin, and also access to the sea of Japan.

The following map shows how large that territory (in pink) is. The island of Sakhalin, however, is not painted in pink.  

Interestingly, even though the official Chinese position still regards those previous border treaties signed with Russia as unequal ones, the current Chinese regime no longer wants to reclaim all the lost territories. Instead, they have been negotiating with the Russians on the basis of the modern boundaries, leaving out just about 35,000 km² of territory in dispute, with about 28,000 km² in the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan, 6000 km² elswhere along the western border, and about 1,000 km² along the Argun, Amur, and Ussuri rivers on the eastern border.
