How the Russian invasion of Ukraine will change China
When the dust settles in Ukraine, where will China be in what promises to be a transformed international order? Join Jeremy Goldkorn, Kaiser Kuo, and special guest Lizzi Lee in a discussion of China’s Ukraine conundrum at 12 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 23.
China’s response to the crisis in Ukraine — from the buildup of Russian forces to the invasion on February 24 and the weeks of horrific bloodshed and destruction that followed — has been the focus of a great deal of discussion among China-watchers. Where do things stand? Has China’s attempt to hedge been successful, or will it pay a severe price? And when the dust settles, where will China be in what promises to be a transformed international order? Join Jeremy Goldkorn, Kaiser Kuo, and special guest Lizzi Lee in a discussion of China’s Ukraine conundrum at 12 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 23.
