Possibly.  If Putin decides to push further into Russian-speaking Ukraine, I fear the worst.  If it doesn't lead to a war (and Putin manages to acquire more territory), China might be emboldened to take military action next time its border disputes with Japan, the Philippines, or India heat up.  I don't think Xi would be stupid enough to take such a move, thank God, but that's the second-likeliest scenario for WWIII I see happening after a Russian invasion of Eastern Ukraine (which, of course, would itself be necessary for the China option even to be remotely possible).
