    If we consider European part of Russia then I don't think so. I can't estimate China's influence on Far East since I don't live there, but I'm pretty sure it's not a big deal.

    There was a very interesting article regarding this topic from National Geographic that I just read about the Amur River, also known as the Black Dragon River in Chinese. I believe it came out in 1999.

    There isn't much interaction, though it's growing. I recently met a girl from Khaborovsk who thought that there were far too many Chinese in her city and that many were coming illegally.

    Chinese are actually importing dirt-cheap vodka into Russia now.

    Supposedly in the Far East there is a rapidly growing Chinese population -- both legal and illegal (I think Chita, Amurskii, and Primorskii primarily?). I don't know if anybody TRULY knows what it is -- I've heard both that nationalists inflate it dramatically to scare people with an "invasion" of foreigners and that the government doesn't really know how big it is. Who really knows? But it is an issue in the rest of Russia, too. There was some controversy when the St. Petersburg governor announced plans for the creation of a "China town" section of SPb. And as for a relationship with the Chinese government, google "Shanghai Cooperation Organization."
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    No Chinese influence whatsoever.

    I was rather disappointed when i went to Kazan and saw only a brazen Japanese restaurant. Talk about letting the side down... Still, it also means there's a viable market...
