TAIPEI, Feb. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Russian invasion of Ukraine has drastically altered the state of international affairs. To highlight Taiwan’s unique view on the conflict, TaiwanPlus has released a featured series marking the one-year anniversary of the war.
“Ukraine War: One Year On” investigates the lessons Taiwan has learned from a war half a world away, including Taiwan’s renewed interest in stronger diplomatic channels and asymmetric defense. Featured stories will also explore Taiwan’s efforts in lending technology and other aid to Ukraine, as well as the parallels between weapons pledges to Ukraine and the prospects of arms support for Taiwan.
TaiwanPlus CEO Michael Yu believes Taiwan has a lot to say when it comes to the invasion. “For Taiwan, the Ukraine war is a stark reminder of how conflict quickly changes the course of history, arrests progress and inflicts harm in people’s lives,” he says. “As a trusted and authentic voice from the region, we are committed to sharing Taiwan’s perspective on this defining global event.”
The anniversary coverage is available on the TaiwanPlus website, YouTube channel, Twitter, and Facebook. TaiwanPlus journalists Rik Glauert and Leslie Liao are also reporting from Ukraine and neighboring countries to cover the stories of the invasion, including firsthand reports on major stories like President Biden’s impromptu visit to Ukraine. When the war broke out last spring, Glauert was among a small number of Taiwan-based journalists who covered the war from Poland.
