Just like the Chinese are a capitalist society, and Vietam is coming close to being one. China is more capitolist than Russia is, and has the same level of personal liberties.
Firstly, Russia has freedom of religion, China does not. Secondly, Russians can obtain abortions up to 12 weeks, it's their CHOICE. In China women are forced to have abortions.
Secondly, one can own property in Russia. Property cannot be owned in China.
Thirdly, the Internet is not regulated in Russia, whereas in China it is strictly regulated. I frequently post to FR from Volgograd.
Fourthly, there are several political parties in Russia. There is only one in China.
Fifthly, there is freedom in the MSM, albeit the government does own a couple of the main TV stations, but overall there is freedom. There is no free press or TV in China.

The simple fact that Russia has a dozen major and minor political parties and China ONE.
