Now China is the leading country in terms of GDP (PPP) and second after the United States in terms of GDP. A large sector of the Chinese economy depends on exports to other countries, which could affect its domestic policies. This article examines the issue of the dependence of other countries on China in such extent that they are ready to support government policy, despite the ideological difference. This can be seen in the protests in Hong Kong and the international reaction to these riots. I will focus on Russia, the United States and the European Union as the main actors in relation to China and give examples of their reaction to the protests in Hong Kong. As a result, this paper will contribute to the study not only of Hong Kong protests, but also to the reasons for other countries acceptance of China's inner policies.
