The People's Liberation Army of China has begun military exercises off the island of Taiwan

The eastern zone of the combat command of the People's Liberation Army of China has begun exercises near the island of Taiwan.

Gu Zhong, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Eastern Zone of the PLA Combat Command:
"These exercises are a necessary measure in response to the dangerous steps of the US and Taiwanese authorities in the Taiwan issue. The Combat Command Zone has organized various units of the Armed forces of the People's Republic of China to conduct joint exercises. We warn those who visit Taiwan with bad intentions and those who advocate the so-called "independence of Taiwan" that the Eastern Zone of the PLA Combat Command has the ability to resist all provocations and resolutely intends to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity."

The exercises take place in the sea areas off the northern, south-western and south-eastern coasts of the island and in their airspace. The servicemen practice joint deterrence, control, attacks on land and on the ground, actions in the air, conduct long-range combat firing and test launch of missiles.


The summer fishing season has started on the east coast of China

For three months there was a ban on fishing on the east coast of China, and finally hundreds of trawlers are back in business – a new fishing season has begun.

Liu Lei, employee of the port of Lianyungang:
"There were a total of 265 fishing vessels in the port. We opened the lock gates at high tide to send all the boats in one go."

The crew members were preparing fishing gear, food and other necessities for the upcoming multi-week trip in advance.

Li Baoshan, fisherman:
"I have barrels of rice here, which can feed my team for about a month, and there is fresh water. We expect to catch from 20 to 25 tons of fish. It will be possible to get 200-300 thousand yuan for it."

And the first group of fishing vessels returned to the port of Taizhou City District. Dozens of people who wanted to buy fresh seafood were already waiting for her on the spot. In the evening, the port turned into a busy market.

Tao Lubing, a resident of Taizhou City District:
"This is the first big catch after the lifting of the ban on fishing, so there is a diverse assortment. I arrived in advance to have time to buy everything I want."

The annual ban on fishing in large seas in the north, east and south of China has been in effect since May 1 in order to restore fish resources.


Border guards told about the service in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region

Chinese border guards told how their service in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is going. The servicemen of the Khorgos border outpost – an important hub of the One Belt, One Road initiative – go out on patrol day and night. They use the most modern equipment in their work.

Huang Jiaqiang, soldier of the Khorgos border outpost of the Xinjiang Military Command of the PLA:
"Thermal imagers, radars, CCTV cameras and other equipment are installed here. We are able to control the situation without even leaving the door."

Now the servicemen live in modern barracks, where there is hot water, indoor gyms, libraries and vending machines. But in order to feel how their fearless predecessors used to live, officers and privates sometimes go to less comfortable barracks.

Tian Hongchao, a soldier of the Alamali border outpost of the Xinjiang Military Command of the PLA:
"Seeing the harsh conditions here, I really understand the difficulties of those who used to defend the border. We have a prosperous life, and we are obliged to fulfill the mission of stabilizing Xinjiang well."

At the border outpost "Sandaohezi" in the upper reaches of the Ili River – a difficult terrain. But if the servicemen were able to get used to this, they have not yet been able to come to terms with the invasions of mosquitoes.

Liu Zhanzhao, soldier of the border outpost "Sandaohezi" of the Xinjiang Military Command of the PLA:
"When I first arrived here, I heard the commanders say that there are a lot of mosquitoes here in the summer. But I didn't expect that there would be so many of them! Although the conditions are very harsh, I will carry the spirit of the old generation of revolutionary officers and soldiers and devote myself to protecting the border, becoming a loyal defender of the motherland."

Every year the number of tourists and reindeer herders is growing here, so the outpost is strengthening border patrols to ensure the security and stability of the area.


The media Corporation of China has prepared a gala concert in honor of the Qixijie Festival

The media corporation of China has completed the filming of a gala concert dedicated to the annual holiday of Qixijie, or Qixi, the equivalent of Valentine's Day in China. The idea of the creators is to convey Chinese romance in traditional artistic forms using high technology. Instead of one large-scale stage, which is usually used in many shows, this year the gala concert was held at different venues. Computer graphics (CG), augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) were used during filming. Everything is to impress the audience.

Bai Yang, Visual Effects Director of the gala:
"The main feature of this year's concert is that we have abandoned many LED screens that we used before and added many elements of virtual design."

The focus is on the love and romantic relationships of the inhabitants of the Celestial Empire.

Gu Zhigan, the main director of the gala concert:
"This year, the goal of the Qixi Gala is to demonstrate how romance is expressed in traditional Chinese culture. We use four components in the show – poetry, painting, ceremonial dancing and music."

The Qixijie Festival is based on an ancient legend about how an earthly shepherd boy and a weaver girl who lived in the sky met on the Milky Way. The media Corporation of China has completed the filming of a gala concert in the cities where this legend originated - in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi Province, and Xinyu city of Jiangxi Province.
The Qixijie Holiday was included in the list of the National Intangible Cultural Heritage of China in 2006.
