    China’s Final Warning

    China’s Final Warning (Russian: Последнее китайское предупреждение) is a Russian proverb meaning a warning that carries no real consequences.


    Relations between the People’s Republic of China and the United States of America during the 1950s and 1960s were strained due to the Taiwan Strait issues. American military fighter jets regularly patrolled the straits, which led to regular formal protests being lodged by the Chinese Communist Party. In China, they issued over 900 “final warnings” to the United States for their fighter manoeuvres in the Taiwan Strait, albeit with no real consequences. Thus, it is a common sentiment in Russia that Chinese warnings are merely warnings without consequences. Eventually, “China’s Final Warning” became a catchphrase and proverb in Russia as a result.
