Chinese stocks are slipping today as recent turmoil surrounding the war between Russia and Ukraine causes shares to slump.

This comes as China has continued to support Russia during its war in Ukraine. The country hasn’t placed trade sanctions on Russia like others have, even if it isn’t openly approving of the invasion.

That makes sense as Russia is pushing into territory that was previously part of the Soviet Union. This mirrors China’s own claims to Taiwan despite the island country’s leaders denying it’s part of China.

All of this has led to negative sentiment for Chinese stocks lately as many shares have been slipping these last few weeks. Let’s dive deeper into that with breakdowns of how some companies are falling below!
