Back off on the repression.  Implement and enforce protections for those
who report corruption, as well as actual penalties for corruption, so as to
start cleaning middle levels of government of those who hold the Chinese
back, taking public example from what corruption has demonstrably done to
the Russian army.  But what matters is what they are likely to do.

Train the AIs on the English Internet as well, not to mention the Spanish,
Japanese, and anything else the AI can grab.  They aren't worried about AIs
adopting foreign culture, only their - as you put it - BIs.  Any AI that
does start spreading foreign culture can be shut down with far less
repercussions from the BIs than executing BIs who do the same.
