- Switzerland has imposed sanctions on Russia due to the conflict in Ukraine
- "Swiss set to match EU sanctions if China invades Taiwan — agency chief"
These cases look like Switzerland de facto abandoning¹ their policy of neutrality. Why did they do so? Have similar cases happened in recent history?
¹ Switzerland actually claims that they didn't abandon their neutrality in a strict sense of the term because it "does not favour any warring party militarily", which might seem to be a valid argument, yet, if they wanted to remain 100% neutral, they wouldn't have recognized one side of the conflict as wrong and imposed sanctions.
