Straw Man Guards China-Russia Border on the Russian Side

Sino-Russia-cooperated Tongjiang Bridge is under construction to connect China to Russia in Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province.

Reporters were invited to visit the construction site on August 23, only to find the border guard on the Russian side was actually a straw man.

A reporter from Hunaqiu said that he drew out a telephoto lens to take a picture of the Russian watchtower, when he found that the guard on the tower was less a human being than he expected.

Tongjiang Bridge is also known as the Amur Bridge. Once completed, this international railway bridge will serve to link the Russian city of Nizhneleninskoye to Chinese city of Tongjiang.

The bridge is 1886.45 meters within the Chinese border and 328.57 within the Russian border. The construction on the Chinese side began in February of 2014, and has finished 60 percent of it.

However, in contrast to the in-full-swing construction on the Chinese part, and as if to surprise the Huanqiu reporter even more, there is not a sign of construction to be seen on Russian part.
