According to him, Western countries want to install "their" government in China.

"Who can go to war with China? South Korea, Vietnam, Japan? Of course, the Americans themselves will not, and neither will Europe," Tikhon said at the presentation of his book "The Death of the Empire. The Russian Lesson".

The metropolitan added that the only country that can hypothetically go to war with China is Russia.

"But we don't want to fight the Chinese, on the contrary, we are friends with them," he concluded.

In addition, Tikhon said that on the eve of 1917, the Russian Empire was a prosperous country, without any exaggeration.
