Abstract: China declared a neutral position immediately after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. This chapter critically analysed the reporting of the Russia-Ukraine War 2022 by three Chinese state-controlled central media - namely Xinhua News Agency (Xinhua), China Central Television (CCTV) and People’s Daily and evaluate if China self-claimed ‘neutrality’ position leads to fair and impartial reporting. These three media organisations are all under the strict control of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) and serve as a barometer of China’s policies on major domestic and international incidents. Three tropes of Chinese media’s reporting can be detected from its reporting since 24 February 2022, namely, the absence of the war; framing the war as ‘conflict’ and utilizing the war to promote a ‘US threat’ discourse.
