The Russian-Ukrainian war may become a turning point in Ukrainian-Chinese relations, which have developed intensively for 30 years. China considered Ukraine as a supplier of high-quality agricultural products; a source of military technology for the People’s Liberation Army; an important element in infrastructure projects within the “One Belt, One Road” initiative. At the same time, China’s position regarding the Russian-Ukrainian war, despite Beijing’s declaration of neutrality, is pro-Russian in many respects. In addition, Ukraine’s desire to join the EU and NATO, intensification of the US’s strategic competition and Russia’s partnership with China will obviously significantly weaken Kyiv’s relations with Beijing. This article focuses on the dynamics of the Ukrainian-Chinese partnership before the full-scale war, Beijing’s position regarding the Russian invasion, and the further prospects of Ukraine’s relations with China.
