ABSTRACT
The article explores the political tension caused by border disputes between the Soviet Union and China as of July 1967. In the early stages of the Sino-Soviet dispute, ideology seemed to be the only point at issue. Russia was denounced as revisionist for believing in the false theory of a parliamentary road to socialism and faintheartedness in backing revolutionary wars. Her boundaries with China seemed no part of the problem. Recently, however, the Russians and the Chinese have themselves hinted at incidents along their common frontier, which extends from Mongolia eastward 1500 miles to the sea, and westward from Mongolia 1200 miles to the Wakh panhandle of the Afghan frontier. The present Chinese grievance is that a hundred years ago the Tsar took advantage of the weakness of the Manchu dynasty to pry away the Maritime Province from the Empire. The anxiety which Russians are said to feel about a Chinese threat to their territories can hardly be immediate, though they may fear for the future. With the exception of the Hi valley, which runs down from Chinese into Russian territory, the frontier is extremely rugged.
