Russian President, Vladimir Putin, awarded Order of Friendship to Xia Baolong for his outstanding contribution to China-Russia cooperation and friendship, Russian media outlet Sputnik News reported on August 25. According to the news, Xia Baolong is the vice-chairman of the People’s PCC and the director of the cc CCP’s HK and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council.
The official media of Communist China reposted this report for the first time. However, both countries have not disclosed any details about Xia’s contribution. Xia became Chairman Xi’s confidant when he was the Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Committee while Xi was in office for Provincial Committee Secretary in ZheJiang between 2003 and 2007.
In February 2020, Xia Baolong was appointed as the Director of HK and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council of Communist China. Meanwhile, he helped Xi to execute many hardline policies.
With 11 US Treasury Department sanctioned CCP members, Xia was one on the list. Putin’s award to Xia implies that China-Russia has already made the deal.
