With eyes on the Russia Ukraine conflict, China took the opportunity to intimidate Taiwan. On Thursday, as Russia invaded Ukraine, China sent fighter planes into the air defense zone. China claims Taiwan as part of their territory and often flies into this defense zone, but typically stays away from the landmass.

The mission included 8 Chinese J-16 fighters and one Y-8 reconnaissance aircraft, which flew over the northeast area of Taiwan-controlled air space at the top end of the South China Sea. Taiwan quickly scrambled its response, sending its own fighters to “monitor the activities.”
Whether it be North Korea back to firing missiles, the military provocations of China in the Taiwan Straits & the South China Sea, or the Russian military moving into Ukraine, we’re learning once again the lesson of history that the free world is secure when America is Strong. pic.twitter.com/h5qaInbM3o

With Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Taiwan worries that China will see it as an opportunity to mass their invasion of Taiwan. However, no movement of Chinese forces has been reported. China has increased its alert level, and Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Tan Kefei said in a statement on Thursday that Taiwan was a ‘core issue’ and China would not tolerate foreign interference.
“We urge the U.S. side to recognize the high sensitivity of the Taiwan issue, stop interfering in China’s internal affairs and stop playing with fire on the Taiwan issue,” said Tan.
