TDC President for the Al Jazeera: Is China growing tired of Russia’s war in Ukraine?

Maksym Skrypchenko, President of the Transatlantic Dialogue Center, recently wrote an opinion article for the Al Jazeera.

As the third year of Russia’s war against Ukraine dawns, China finds itself struggling to maintain its stance of strategic ambiguity. For the time being Chinese authorities neither condemned Moscow’s invasion nor offered overt military support. However now it is being tested by the war’s mounting costs and implications for China’s global interests.

Initially, China benefited economically and strategically from the war, buying discounted Russian energy and watching Western military stockpiles diminish. Now prolonged conflict has exposed unforeseen economic and geopolitical risks, forcing Beijing to reconsider its position.
