This, so far, is for one week (February 1 through February 8). All United hubs are affected, so I don't see this as an "excuse" to reduce flights only at O'Hare; this is a world-wide phenomenon not specific to ORD or UA.

United has said that "a few" flights are to continue to HKG/PVG/PEK but i've been unable to determine which ones. Let us know if you come across the info!
More clarity now: Cuts are not for one week but start occurring over the week of Feb 1- Feb 8:
UA ORD-PEK Cancelled from Feb 6
UA ORD-PVG Reduced from 7 to 4/weekly
Also cancelled by United: EWR-PEK, EWR-HKG & IAD-PEK.
Other reduced flights: EWR-PVG, SFO-HKG, SFO-PVG
