Articles and features about the impact of the Philippine elections on Russia, a Russia-Cambodia defense cooperation agreement, and Vladimir Putin's invitation to AIIB to finance projects in the Russian Far East were among the Asia-Pacific highlights on rbth.com.
As a part of his epic journey from Europe to Asia and the Russian Far East, Nicholas II attended a high tea party in Singapore before crossing the equator for a more exhaustive tour of the Indonesian island of Java.
