The Russian invasion of Ukraine has prompted European policymakers to consider previously unimaginable economic sanctions against the world's second largest economy if Beijing takes a military step against Taiwan, Politico reports.

It is noted that in Europe they are reluctant to comment on the topic of Taiwan and disputes between the US and China.. However, European diplomats acknowledge that there is a danger that the situation could get out of control.

Brussels admits that in the event of an escalation, they will side with the United States and are already developing sanctions against China, which will be tougher than against Russia.
“In the event of a military invasion, we have made it very clear that the EU, together with the United States and its allies, will take similar or even more measures than we have now taken against Russia,” said new EU Ambassador to China Jorge Toledo.
In addition, the EU is urged to prepare for a possible armed confrontation, as the example of Ukraine shows that "worst-case scenarios" should be expected.
