The research paper focuses on relations between the Soviet Union and China in 1950 s.The origin of Sino-Soviet relations is carefully studied,it is shown how the Soviet Union took part in the Chinese civil war and supported sides,how it eventually chose a side and helped Mao Zedong found People's Republic of China in 1949.The development of the Sino-Soviet relations after 1949 is also shown,key meetings between Mao and Stalin as well as their intricate relationship are also analyzed.It is shown that Stalin considered Mao to be some kind of "apprentice" and Mao hated it,but respected Stalin and followed that game the Soviet leader played just to gain the necessary support for the young Chinese state and become prominent world leader himself.The developments after the death of Stalin and Khrushchev's secret “cult of personality” speech are reviewed,it is shown that Moscow and Beijing didn't break apart immediately after 1956,neither was a secret report the reason for the split,although it played a great role..Major differences and disagreements between Moscow and Beijing that led to the conflict are found and explained.It is pointed out that such divisions are the result of disproportionality in relations between the two states that seemed to be the allies.It is shown how Mao despised Khrushchev and that also played its part in the Sino-Soviet split.It is reviewed how the Soviet Union used China for its own economic purposes,taking resources and using production capabilities as well as leading the economic development towards the spheres that Moscow needed,resulting in further problems in the Chinese economy.Conclusions are made on how these historic lessons can be used in present-day relations between Russia and China.
