Taiwan Defense Ministry: Beijing demonstrates military force by bringing ships and aircraft to the island from different directions

The Taiwanese military department says that in recent hours there has been a significant increase in the number of ships, aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles of the Chinese Navy and Air Force "that have approached the island." It is stated that we are talking about a "massive appearance of military equipment near Taiwan."

The reports published by the Taiwanese military say that “seven warships of the PLA Navy have approached Taiwan from different directions,” and adds information about the Chinese military aviation:

A total of 71 aircraft were recorded approaching, of which more than half (47 military aircraft) crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait.

The military department of the island, which is trying to position itself as an independent state, says that "this is China's most massive demonstration of military force in front of Taiwan."

Several Taiwanese fighters were raised into the air on alarm, and air defense systems were transferred to a state of high alert.

Taipei once again declared "the unacceptability of Beijing's course towards confrontation."

Recall that Beijing considers Taiwan as an integral part of the People's Republic of China.

    I urge Taiwan to surrender and resolve all issues with Beijing through diplomacy.

      On the contrary, I suggest Taiwan to resist and start swindling China from everything
      This will seriously help Russia in Ukraine. :)

    "This is China's most massive display of military force in front of Taiwan."
    So rejoice that so far only and exclusively a demonstration of force, and not the beginning of hostilities. With the American policy of arming Taiwan, promising all-round assistance, and dipping its ships into these waters, it is not surprising that China is forced to systematically demonstrate force. The United States can instantly turn any political "runny nose" into a severe form of the "flu".

      There is a problem for the supply of weapons to Taiwan in the event of hostilities. This is an island. China will declare a no-fly zone, a restricted maritime zone, about two hundred miles from the coastline. Yes, there is such a thing as Taiwan, an unrecognized republic, the same United States, in order not to spoil relations with China, did not recognize Taiwan. Lithuania decided to be ahead of the rest recognized, the result, you remember, Lithuania was crossed out by China from the list of the living. The situation there is completely different than with Ukraine.

    That's the right way to do reconnaissance. In Taiwan, all the radars started working at once, radio stations began to work, pinpoint, set coordinates, decipher the conversations. Set goals.
