Newsline: Chinese embassy tells its citizens in Ukraine not to display ‘identifying symbols’

The Chinese embassy in Ukraine asked citizens in the country to not highlight their identities in public. The recommendation comes two days after the embassy advised Chinese nationals to display their national flag when driving. In a WeChat post, the embassy said that there’s an uptick in “extreme behavior” in Ukraine that constitutes heightened security risks for Chinese citizens. “Don’t highlight your identity or display identifying symbols,” the embassy recommended in the post, addressing Chinese nationals.
