When it comes to Manchuria and the Russian Far East, the names become the ultimate pain in the XXX. Both the Russians and the Chinese have completely different names for completely everything. For example, even today Chinese still refer to Khabarovsk by its original Chinese name "Boli," and the Khabarovsk Protocol (from the Russian name "Хабаровский протокол") is called the "Boli Conference Resolution" or "Boli Protocol" by Chinese scholars.
Anyway, awesome to have this primary source, thank you Greg.

The Russians call it "Conflict on the CER"The 51st Division wrote:The 1929 Sino-Soviet border clash over control of railways? ... The Russians go by something like "Far East Conflict."
This should not mislead us into believing that Boli was the original name of Khabarovsk. Indeed, the Aigun Treaty of 1858 which is sometimes quoted as an example of the unequal treaties imposed on the Chinese, was, so to say, equal on both sides, as the Chinese (in fact, Manchu) presence on the Amur was due to an expansionism that matched any other.The 51st Division wrote: even today Chinese still refer to Khabarovsk by its original Chinese name "Boli,"
