Chinese Describe Russians As Fans Of Fighting
August 26, 2015 00:35


The Chinese Internet users think that Russians “like to fight” and that Poles hate China. This is evidenced by the results of the research published in the Foreign Policy magazine.

American political scientists have analyzed the queries entered by the users of the popular Chinese Baidu search network. A map showing the thoughts of the Chinese citizens about Europe was composed following the results.

The Chinese describe Russians as “fans of fighting”, Lithuanians as suicidal people, Finns as speaking good English. Belarus puzzled the residents of China with its name, Ukraine was known for a lot of beautiful women, Iceland for not being a part of the European area. Britain was characterized by Baidu users as “small but strong”. The Germans are famous primarily for the fact that they killed Jews and the Danes – for killing whales. In the opinion of the Chinese citizens, Italy is very weak, and there are too many dark-skinned people in France.

Many Chinese people are puzzled by the fact that Spain has not yet annexed Portugal. As the authors of the research note, many Western countries are not interesting for the Chinese - in particular, the major part of the Balkans and Eastern Europe.

Baidu is the leader among Chinese search engines and occupies the second place in the world in the number of processed requests. The search engine index contains over 740 million web pages, 80 million images and 10 million media files. Baidu maintains its own online encyclopedia – “Baidupedia”, which surpasses the Chinese “Wikipedia” in terms of the content.
