Comparative Analysis of Ukrainian Crisis in Chinese and Singapore Media
Comparative Politics of Eurasia
(Master’s programme)

2019
The Ukrainian crisis is one of the major topics of mass media all over the world. Chinese and Singapore media are not exceptions. These events are differently estimated by journalists all over the world. In our study we analyze reactions of Chinese and Singapore media on the Ukrainian crisis. The research is based on online and printed media analysis of Singapore and China in Mandarin and English languages. We divided the territory of China into five regions, whereas we consider Singapore as one big region. Our research is based on the qualitative research method of the narrative analysis. The results of our study illustrate that journalists from the Mainland China neutrally react on Russian actions in Ukrainian crisis, however, journalists from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and, surprisingly, Tibet negatively estimated Russian actions in Crimea region. It is interesting that Singapore journalists also negatively reacted on the Ukrainian crisis. However, it is need to emphasize that the issue of Ukrainian crisis is not mostly discussed by Singapore journalists. Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan are called as Asian Tigers due to their fast-economic development. We expected that countries with similar economic development and historical background have similar media narratives. The results of our work will be useful for journalists, political scientists, linguists and everyone who is interested in Asia.
