Why the Japanese are looking forward to the resignation of Lavrov

The intractable Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, who for years 12 has not wished to yield to the Japanese of the Kuril Islands, must resign from his post. This was written by the Japanese press on the eve of the visit of Sergey Lavrov to Tokyo. In her opinion, only then will there be a chance for the return of the islands, which were ceded to Russia in the wake of the Second World War.

A month ago, a nationwide rally was held in the Japanese capital for the return of the northern territories. I am for the current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is waiting for elections this year, the question of the Kuriles is the most important foreign policy task.

Russia's position is to deny the very possibility of transferring the islands to Japanese control. However, in order to normalize relations with our neighbors, we offered to engage in their arrangement jointly: to build joint ventures, housing, roads, and develop business. At the same time, we were ready to give Japan the maximum preferences and opportunities.

    Fuck them and not the islands! After 40 years of occupation, they imagined that they were theirs from the creation of the world! They couldn’t even live them. Some garrisons poked! The Imperials scrambled!

      With the Lavrov or without the Lavrov, the Japs still cannot see the islands. We did not learn how to choose the right side; in the Second World War they went under Hitler after under the Americans who bombed them. Let now they ask their owners, they can cut off a piece from something.

    And in America, who should leave so that they cease to be their lackeys which they became based on the results of the Second World War?

    In the Japanese capital, a nationwide rally was held for the return of the northern territories. So what? A similar rally was held in our village about the abandonment of these islands, forever and ever, as part of Russia. Well, now I have to demand from the Japanese that they jump out of their pants?

    You might think that after Lavrov left the post of head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, his follower would immediately begin to do everything possible to make concessions to Japan without fail.

    We will raise the question of the return of Hokkaido to Russia. He is Matsmai. Matsmai Island was Russian.
    The question of the Kuril Islands will generally fall out along with the teeth of the Nazi shorties.

    -Of course, Japan would have been quite happy if S. Lavrov’s post were occupied by such a rag doll ... as E. Shevardnadze .. -Japanese would have been delighted ... -And how did they slap "their lucky moment", when Shevardnadze was the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR ... under Gorbachev ... -Probably the Japanese then also planned to take Sakhalin into their own hands ... -that and made fun ...
    -Zato Shevardnadze "succeeded" ... -For only the "Agreement on the Shevardnadze-Baker Line," this E. Shevardnadze should score an aspen stake in the grave ...

    Well, he will leave, there will be another, as he was before him. The topic of the return of the islands is not discussed. Joint projects, well, maybe, although I do not like it. As long as our security forces are in force, they can only dig on the islands.

    There are a couple more traitors at the very top of the government, such as Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Shchevarnadze, Kozyrev, etc. -and Russia may fall apart! We still have the President in Tatarstan and everyone turns a blind eye to this !! We still have many problems of an international understanding of the unity of the Russian nation or people !!! Japan is a single people, they have no other presidents and they play long !!! You can arbitrarily say that we won’t give it back, but at the same time today there are facts of the return of our territories, both Norway and China and ..... !!! And what, somebody asked any of us, put to a referendum, no, everything went quietly and without dust, supposedly for optimization !!! Our politicians didn’t think with their heads, giving Crimea to Ukraine, did they think while developing the outskirts, such as Ukraine, that it would become our worst enemy, and did not develop and keep in desolation the central regions of Russia, Siberia and the Far East !!!
    You won’t foresee everything, then what’s the conversation and who can say what else we will give to the Westerners, Japan and the USA, because many of our young politicians look directly into their mouths and think with their heads !!! God forbid, such as Sobchak and the like come to power, they are now ready to give Crimea to Ukraine, and even the Kuril Islands of Japan even more so !!! That is what Japan and its ruling clan are counting on!

    Of course, the Kuril Islands will never be Japanese! But, the children of the Japanese, the graves of relatives who are on the islands, may, by agreement, have something, like, cottages. They can live freely as long as they like, though obeying the laws of Russia. And in order for them to be calmer, they can be allowed to have a Japanese ombudsman. If the Japanese want, they can start economic activity.

      And why not make such disputed territories territories of joint development. It is a pity that people are such misery and divide the land, but do not think about those people who are capable and want to live and work there

    And who said that this question depends on Lavrov? Lavrov’s resignation will happen someday. The only reason negotiators may wish for his resignation is that he smokes a lot. This harms the health of the minister and others.

    Japanese authorities themselves inspired them and now do not know how to tell them that they are not shining!

    Such a professional as Lavrov is primarily a person with advanced abilities to model and predict situations. A diplomat of this level of responsibility should consider not one-way consequences, but multi-way ones. And even though there are no methods for analyzing complex processes, but the brain is capable of it if it works under appropriate conditions and loads. Therefore, as a conclusion, the Japanese, and not only them, do not understand that any other person will have to develop methods of such a level of work and responsibility for their actions, and there are no such specialists and there cannot be any. So a more radical person will come in his decisions. Which direction is also easy to predict, as in Russia the team created with the coming to power of Vladimir Putin continues to work in the top leadership
