We've come for your women: Chinese men seek Siberian brides

At first sight, it looks like a rather formal business meeting but this session in Novosibirsk is a get-to-known-you session between men from China and Russian women. 

There were supposed to be eight 'bachelors', but only five made it to Novosibirsk after three found brides in their previous love tour stopover in Khabarovsk. 

Here in the Puppen House restaurant, drinking tea, the men - aged between 25 and 46 and from Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shenzhen - talked with the aid of  interpreters over their views on marriage and the family. 

Elena Suvorova, head of marriage agency OSD Centre, which operates in a number of Siberian cities, explained that in China there is an imbalance in the sexes, with far more men than women. In Russia the situation is opposite. 

'For them, a Russian woman is like a present,' she said. 'Men want to get married, and are committed for serious relationships.

'All the girls who we invited are under 35 years old. Initially men want to see brides with white skin and blue eyes - funnily enough, though, last year the girls who got into a relationship were brunettes with brown eyes.'

Suvorova praised Chinese men and their attitude to women.  

'Chinese men treat women with respect,' she said. 'It is important for them that the woman is moderate, natural, calm, smiling, and not competing with the man.'

The men are 'all quite successful'.

She said: 'Last year we organised the first singles' tour when Chinese men visited [Novosibirsk]. 

'There were six men and 25 girls. After a meeting in Novosibirsk, there were two couples. And three couples after a stopover in Krasnoyarsk.'

In China there are around 34 million more men than women. 

'With 120 men for every 100 women, China's Bridget Joneses are now male, and increasingly desperate for a date,' said one report. 

China's historic 'one-child' policy has been blamed, which led parents to abandon girls or use sex-selective abortion to guarantee a male child.

Men are increasingly looking abroad for wives, and Siberia is on the doorstep. Cities like Blagoveshchensk, opposite the Chinese city of Heihe, have seen an upsurge in cross-border marriages.

But the singles' tours for upscale businessmen are a fairly new trend, and evidently popular, matching tours by Western lonely hearts to former Soviet countries.

Ivan Zuenko, of the Centre for Asian Pacific Studies of the Far Eastern Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said: 'There are more marriages registered between Chinese men and Russian women than between Chinese women and Russian men. 

'But it is impossible to say that the number of such families is so high that it will impact on the demographic situation in the region.' 

A video shows a Chinese man playing saxophone in the city of Blagoveshchensk, the Far East of Russia, to attract attention of local women. 

A piece of paper by his feet has handwritten ''Calm, balanced, looking for a Russian girlfriend.'

The Chinese from Mainland China and East Asians in general are the most superficial people in the world. They think money will make them more like Europeans(Northern Russians, Westerners, Eastern Europeans, Southern Europeans etc.) but see that isn't working. So the Chinese try a different tactic playing Western Classical Music and performing ballet still doesn't satisfy them. Finally they are going for European(Kurgan) genetics and think that will make them "European". Chinese are extremely racist toward their neighbors and dark-skinned minorities. Kurgan Europeans should marry Mongolian, Japanese or Koreans. China recently did "black face" in Chinese tv gala.

Good. Much better than fat Western perverts who share no cultural similarities with these women.

"They want a woman "not competing with the man". Sure those men have a lot of self-insecurities problems, the typical bottom of machism."

I am happily married now to a nice Persian, but before that I've had numerous Mexican and Latin girlfriends. They don't have much nice things to say about Mexican men. Latinos (or Chicanos) are bothered whenever they see their women in my arms. This has nothing to do with showing 'machismo', but just being a strong responsible man and women of all races will die for. I have realized one thing: all pu$$ies tastes the same!

They have beautiful faces and unusual body structure, breasts, raised butts and long legs. Most commonly milky-white. Many Chinese bosses have Serbian women mistresses, and later marry them. And my mom is one of them. Raspberry blond, blue-green eyes, milky white, high.

These things are natural and they are done deliberately. It is known that China has more men and Russia is more women, and the most natural way to strengthen the multiple partnership of these two countries is through the marriage of their people. These things are wonderful because they connect people in the most natural way. Chinese men are pleasant, smart, capable, worthy and working, and Russian women are beautiful, healthy and thoughtful. However, it is less known that all Eastern European women are the most beautiful Serbian women. During the 1990s, many Chinese came to Serbia. Serbia and China have a strategic partnership. From the beginning began to create mixed marriages. A lot of Serbian men married Chinese women who worked in Serbia, and today there are more and more Chinese bosses who marry Serb women working for them. Serbian women are more beautiful than Russian women and more attractive. White complexes, but spiced with the blood of many nations.

interesting. I know several western men who wish they could marry an Asian or Russian woman. There are just some big cultural differences which might be either very good or very bad. Here in lethbridge those women would be married immediately as they are very attractive.

I want an Asian bride in my life. I am done with white women. The less Chinese men marriaging there kind means easy picking for me. Keep doing what your doing China. #ULL #UL18 #Chruchpoint337 #RaginCajun

Ulf, I can feel with you, and there are other demographic and social problems as well arising in the new USSR v2.0 we are currently experiencing in the Western world coming to fruition where people are becoming increasingly brainwashed by Cultural Marxism, and where men and women are driven apart through very clever and insidious social engineering.
It's not without a reason we are seeing the chaotic EU-crisis and situation in the world, it's a big agenda that has been ongoing for a very very long time since before WWI, and unfortunately many of us will fall victim in one way or another affecting us in some way during this global "great leap" struggle.

Looking at the 3rd picture one can't see many Siberian women as in indigenous Siberians, but perhaps not a coincidense as Chinese sees dark skin complexion as something negative due to the societal views where a dark skin is associated with a farmer because they are spending a lot of time in the outside getting a sun tan, ie. a 2nd class citizen, anyhow I wish them good luck.
