BEIJING, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich began his visit to China from one of the country’s oldest cities, Xian, where he saw the Terracotta Army, a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.
Yanukovich, who arrived in China late on Tuesday, also visited the Xian Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC).
