Comparing China and Russia in AP Comparative

If you look at the free response questions from the AP Comparative exam, you will see lots of questions that compare two of the six countries that are being studied in the class.  That is why I like this article looking at why Xi should envy Putin so much.  Obviously both China and Russia are on the test and it really covers so many topics in AP Comparative: Russia's annexation Crimea, Cold War, geography, regional groups, trade between the two countries and economic reforms.  This article could be used as an assignment in of itself or be a take off point for a classroom assignment.
