China launches one of the largest Chinese citizens evacuations in Ukraine

In one of the largest Chinese citizen evacuations in history, the Chinese embassy in Ukraine has already arranged the departure of some 2,300 fellow citizens from the country in just two days. The vast majority of the evacuees, about 2,200, traveled in buses escorted by embassy staff and local police forces to ensure a safe and quick exit to neighboring countries, with the rest going by train, still one of the safest ways out apart from by road.  

However, some Western media outlets such as CNN and The New York Times have been hyping that China's response to the Ukraine crisis "could be putting its citizens in danger" and some even hyped that China "leaves citizens stranded in Ukraine", exaggerating and distorting a very small-scale of online comments on Chinese social media and claiming they are "cheering Russia's invasion," which led to some negative sentiment among Ukrainians.

Analysts said China and Ukraine have been keeping diplomatic communication open including coordinating the evacuation. As the massive evacuation plan started, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke with Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Tuesday at the invitation of the Ukraine side.
