Differences Between Ukraine and Taiwan: Chiu Kuo-cheng 網謠傳「今烏克蘭.明台灣」 邱:兩者有差異

Russia's military action against Ukraine has attracted international attention and has also affected the situation in the Taiwan Strait. National Defense Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng said that a special task force has been set up to monitor the situation in Ukraine and Russia. As for the rumors of "Today Ukraine, tomorrow Taiwan,"  Chiu believes that there is a difference between the two countries. 


“This is the Republic of China Air Force Broadcasting. Attention to the PLA military aircraft located in Taiwan's southwest Air Defense Identification Zone at an altitude of 3,000 meters. You have entered our country's airspace and affected our flight safety. ”

Turn away immediately. The war between Ukraine and Russia has aroused great international concern but the Taiwan Strait is not calm either. The PLA continues to harass Taiwan, sending its fighter jets into our southwestern ADIZ that was intercepted by the Taiwanese Air Force. The escalating conflict between Ukraine and Russia has affected the situation in the Asia-Pacific region. The outside world is concerned about whether the CCP takes the opportunity to increase its military aggression against Taiwan. The Ministry of National Defense does not dare to be careless.

Chiu Kuo-cheng, National Defense Minister: “We are paying more attention to China and what our National Army is facing. We are paying close attention to the link of problems created between Russia and Ukraine.”

Chiu Tai-shan, Minister, Mainland Affairs Council: “We have done everything we need to prepare. In particular, we of course are paying close attention to the possible psychological and media warfare that China may be doing during this time.”

The National Army has raised its vigilance. In addition to maintaining combat training, it is also requiring the chief and deputy commanders of all bases to not leave their respective bases at the same time, to guard against any unexpected situations. Internet rumors of "Today Ukraine, tomorrow Taiwan" are being interpreted as "cognitive warfare" by China. National Defense Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng said there are differences between Taiwan and Ukraine.

Chiu Kuo-cheng, National Defense Minister: “Ukraine and Taiwan are still a bit different. The geographical environment is not exactly comparable. But some aspects can be used as a reference to get good conclusions. Our own country is up to us to defend.”

Feng Shih-kuan, Minister, Veterans Affairs Council: “The people saying these things are ignorant.”

Scholars warned that China is using the conflict between Ukraine and Russia to criticize Taiwan's defense policies as useless and positioning the United States as an unreliable partner. All this propaganda warfare is being undertaken to try to weaken Taiwan's will to fight. Scholars and experts are calling on the Ministry of National Defense's political and war units to combine combat and intelligence units, to face the propaganda war with a more open and aggressive attitude, and publish correct information. 

 

 


「中華民國空軍廣播,位於台灣西南空域,高度3000公尺的中共軍機注意,你已進入我空域,影響我飛航安全,立即迴轉脫離。」

烏俄爆發戰事,引起國際高度關切,但台海也不平靜,共軍持續擾台,共機今日進入我西南空域,遭空軍廣播驅離。烏俄衝突升溫,牽動亞太地區情勢,外界關注中共是否趁機對台加大軍事力道,國防部不敢大意,已成立專案小組關注俄烏局勢。

邱國正表示:「國軍他所面對的,我們更注意到對岸會因為俄烏之間的問題產生連動,這個我們密切注意。」

陸委會主委邱太三表示:「我們也做好各項應該有的準備,特別是我們當然也注意到,對岸也有可能做一些認知作戰的操作。」

國軍提高警覺,除了維持戰訓本務,也要求三軍各部隊的正副主官不能同時離營,防範任何突發狀況。陸委會則表示,特別注意對岸有可能操作認知作戰。面對網路謠傳「今日烏克蘭,明日台灣」,被解讀是認知作戰,邱國正表示,台灣跟烏克蘭兩者有差異。

邱國正表示:「烏克蘭跟台灣畢竟還是有點差異,不管是地緣、地理環境,這個也不是完全就比照,但有的可以當參考,得到好的結論,自己的國家,要靠我們自己來保衛。」

有學者示警,中國操作烏俄衝突,批評台灣國防政策無用、營造美國不可靠的氛圍,企圖弱化我方抗敵意志,呼籲國防部的政戰單位,結合作戰、情報單位,用更開放的態度面對宣傳戰,公布正確訊息。
