Communist Chinese news media posted instructions on social media that dictated how coverage on Ukraine should and should not be handled, including a note on the need for Russian “support” when China makes its move on Taiwan.

A top Chinese state media editor named Ming Jinwei, with the Xinhua News Agency, noted that Beijing needs to back Russia over Ukraine because the Chinese government will need Moscow’s support to assert dominance over Taiwan, according to Fox News.

The editor recognized the need for diplomatic language, stating that China “has to back Russia up with emotional and moral support while refraining from treading on the toes of the United States and European Union.”

“In the future, China will also need Russia’s understanding and support when wrestling with America to solve the Taiwan issue once and for all,” his post contended. “Therefore, with regard to the Ukraine crisis, China should understand Russia’s legitimate security concerns.”

The editor said that it “doesn’t hurt” to use moderately pro-Russian language.

Chinese Communist Party-owned Beijing News’ social media account Horizon News on the WeChat blog also posted on Tuesday similar instructions including a note that no posts that are unfavorable to Russia or with pro-Western content should be published. That post was later deleted, according to  The Washington Post.

A translation via Twitter said, “From now on, for Ukraine-related topics, post them on Weibo. All post on Shimian first and then on our major account to promote Shimian. Don’t post anything against Russia or pro-west. Let me review your words before posting.”

Hu Xijin, who is the former editor of the state-run Global Times, described Russia’s recognition of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions as a means to “break the deadlock” during the crisis in a way that showed “Russia’s strategic determination.”

Russia has already expressed support for China over the Taiwan issue, with foreign minister Sergey Lavrov saying last October that Russia “considers Taiwan to be part of the People’s Republic of China.”

China and Russia are solidly allied now, striking major energy deals and taking a stance in support of one another. Last week, China accused the United States of “playing up” the crisis on Ukraine’s border after Moscow claimed it had pulled back some of its 150,000 troops amassed in the region, according to Fox News. Their militaries have increasingly held joint drills on sea and land.

The day prior to Russia recognizing two breakaway Ukrainian regimes, Moscow and Beijing signed a deal stating that Russia will supply 100 million tons of coal to China in a move that could render sanctions from the West impotent.

Robert L. Wilkie, who was a former undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness during the Trump administration and visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Fox News Digital previously that China would play a role in negating sanctions placed on Russia in the event Russian President Vladimir Putin authorizes any military action in Ukraine.

“A lot of the talk about economic sanctions is really a pie in the sky because China is now Russia’s banker,” Wilkie remarked. “Xi Jinping will back Putin if sanctions from the West come.”

Both the United States and Canada have announced economic sanctions against Russia and Germany has nixed the Nordstream 2 pipeline. President Joe Biden claimed that Tuesday was “the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine,” following reports of Russian troops and tanks entering eastern Ukraine.
