Russia-Ukraine crisis gives a boost to China’s preparations to invade Taiwan

While the entire world is watching the situation unfold on the Russia-Ukraine border, another disaster is on the horizon: China’s preparations to invade Taiwan, according to a media report.

The recent cases of large-scale incursions by Chinese fighter jets into Taiwan’s airspace, as well as Beijing’s open warning to the US of a military conflict, according to the Washington-based group Global Strat View, indicate that China is preparing for the forced takeover of the self-governing island of Taiwan.

The recent examples of large-scale intrusions by Chinese fighter jets into Taiwanese airspace, as well as Beijing’s open warning to the US of a military conflict, according to the Washington-based group Global Strat View in its study, suggest that China is preparing for the force. Beijing, according to Global Strat View, is simply watching how the world reacts to the Russia-Ukraine crisis and how major military powers would respond if Russia invades. These events appear to be determining the future discourse surrounding China’s expansionist goal to take over Taiwan’s self-governing island.

China believes Taiwan to be an integral part of the country and has made no secret of its desire to conquer it in any way feasible. According to Global Strat View, a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would be more serious than the current Ukraine issue, and it would not be confined to a regional conflict, but might escalate into a major armed conflict involving key western states.

Slovenia is the latest country to be reprimanded by Beijing for establishing a representative office in Taiwan. Beijing responded by labelling it “dangerous” and warning Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa not to underestimate China’s “strong resolve, will, and capability to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity,” of which Taiwan is an “indispensable part,” according to the Washington-based group.

According to Global Strat View, the US has chastised China for bullying Taiwan, calling it “destabilising, risking miscalculation, and undermining regional peace and stability.” The United States has approved a $100 million missile defence deal to Taiwan. Meanwhile, China has warned the United States that encouraging Taiwan’s independence will have terrible consequences.
