China’s embassy in Ukraine tells citizens to display Chinese flags on vehicles

BEIJING, CHINA – Following Russia’s attack on the country, China’s embassy in Kyiv advised its citizens in Ukraine to stay at home or, at the very least, to display a Chinese flag on their vehicles if they needed to drive anywhere, according to CNA.

The situation in Ukraine has deteriorated dramatically, and security risks have increased, with social order potentially devolving into chaos, according to the embassy.

“The Chinese flag can be affixed to an obvious place on the body of the vehicle,” the embassy said in advice to any nationals who decide to venture out.

During Lebanon’s military conflict with Israel in 2006, Chinese diplomatic personnel and their families evacuating the embassy in Beirut had draped their vehicles with the Chinese national flag to avoid being randomly targeted.

China has so far stopped short of telling its citizens to consider leaving Ukraine. A security advisory issued by the embassy earlier this week had warned Chinese nationals to stock up on daily necessities such as food and water.
