Taiwan citizens seek gun training as war in Ukraine signals China threat

Published

A growing number of everyday citizens in Taiwan are taking gun training since the war began in Ukraine

Shooting lessons have quadrupled across Taiwan amid a China invasion threat with Russia invading Ukraine three months ago.

Some in Taiwan fearing that China might seize the opportunity to initiate a similar attack on its neighbouring democratic island with the West currently distracted.

The growing anxiety of a potential China invasion has prompted many Taiwanese to sharpen their gun skills at the shooting range.

An official of a combat skills tarining company says that bookings have nearly quadrupled since Russia first inititated attacks on Ukraine in February.

Saying that some of those who are coming to undertake training have not handled guns before.

The people of Taiwan worry China might take advantage of the West’s distraction with Ukraine to ramp-up pressure against its far smaller neighbour.

Taiwan has raised the alert level with China increasing frequency of its air missions in Taiwan’s air defence zone.

There was an “urgent” need to learn more about defensive weapons since the Russian attack on Ukraine, said tour guide Chang Yu, who attended a gun course with his wife.

Taiwanese politicians are also urging the public to start thinking about survival plans besides gun training.

Saying that people need to consider preparing survival kits, emergency food and batteries for a time when most cities could be without water and electricity for days.
