Political scientist Vasily Kashin told MK about the possible timing of the PRC military operation in Taiwan.
He commented on the document signed by Chinese President Xi Jinping on “military operations outside the country”, as well as on the fact that the new Chinese aircraft carrier Fujian went into the water.
“As for the Fujian aircraft carrier, it will be the largest non-nuclear aircraft carrier in the history of world shipbuilding. It is larger than American aircraft carriers of the Kitty Hawk type,” Kashin emphasized.
Such an aircraft carrier will give China an advantage over the United States, which, as you know, have long relied on their fleet in large-scale conflicts.
However, Kashin believes that, first of all, Beijing will seek to peacefully achieve the return of full control over Taiwan.
Nevertheless, if the peaceful strategy does not justify itself, then we should expect Beijing’s decision on a military operation. But China will not immediately start a global war, Kashin is sure, he is taking steps that will allow him to localize the conflict, using the experience gained in peacekeeping operations. According to the expert, Beijing may announce a military operation in the next two to three years.
