Boosting global economic recovery depends on the collective effort of the entire world, a Russian scholar says.

In an interview with Xinhua, Vladimir Portyakov, head of the Center for Prognosis of Russia-China Relations, noted recent remarks from Western media labeling China, whose economy demonstrated a leading performance in the crisis, as the largest beneficiary from the turmoil.

Whenever something went wrong in the global economy, and whenever someone had to shoulder international obligations, the West would always point fingers at China, Portyakov said.

"It seems as if the better or worse of the global economy completely rests on measures adopted by China," he said. "I feel that many governments just envy the success of China. They tried to blame China and the Chinese government for their own failures in anti-crisis measures and other domestic problems."

Portyakov, also deputy director of the Far East Institute in the Russian Academy of Sciences, said world economy recovery is "a matter of the entire international community." "The Chinese are unable to pull all the weight by themselves."
