Tested on Redmi Note 5 AI Global Only

Never tested flashing China/Dev rom. Try at your own risk.

I may sound like complete idiot, but what are the advantages of flashing official recovery ROM?
Can I flash TWRP after that or what?
Thank you!

Sorry I posted the wrong link. Should have been 9..5.4.0 for china. You can try to copy the 9.5.14.0 update on your phone and update it through miui updater.
But you can't flash 9.5.6.0 Global rom on China rom directly. You can do that only with unlocked bootloader through fastboot or custom recovery.

It's for restoring stock rom when you have some issues as I have posted above. Useful when you have a locked bootloader.
You can only flash any custom recovery (twrp/redwolf) when you have an unlocked bootloader.
