Either you sit down again and we talk like adult civilized people or I'll have you escorted to the airport right away. It's up to you." the chin...

Friday 6. February early morning - apartment of the chinese ambassador in Petrograd Ambassador Jhijun Lin could not be described as a lightweight person. Unlike ordinary Chinese men, he was a tall, heavy man who had a superior mind, but a sedate way of moving. He also had an ungainly way of sleeping: flat on his back and snoring as loud as an old groundhog. His sleep was as deep as that of a dead man. If Jhijun Lín slept, a ringing phone had no chance. That was the reason why, in the early hours...

Thursday 5. February - on board of the expedition ship HICMS Zhuhai The HICMS Zhuhai was now on a southern course and had recently met with the american icebreaker USCGC Bear.

Thursday 5. February – american territorial waters of the Bering Strait - on board of the expedition ship HICMS Zhuhai Captain Kun was in a dilemma. If he continued the course, he ran the risk that his ship would be sunk by the insane Russians - whether it caused an international incident or not. China would certainly repay such a warlike act and what would happen then ? Was all this worth a war with Russia, Kun wondered.

onboard of HICMS Zhuhai The ship was noticeably slowing down immediately after Captain Kun gave the order to stop. Battery Alpha of the ship was in the lowest position and pointing away from the Diomedes islands and on the deck of the Zhuhai were still scattered ice chunks, which had been thrown on deck by the warning shots of the Russians.
