Abstract

China’s Ukraine policy is often blurred and ambiguous, and fails to provide answers to some important questions. However there are signs of growing disquiet over Russia’s invasion, and China can be said to be neutral in the strict legal sense. Those in the modern China field will find their expertise an advantage, and may have the opportunity to put questions to Chinese colleagues and friends.
