    Kuril Japanese not to see! Teachings with the DPRK to hold joint with China .. That would be the answer to the imperialists!

      Take your time Vitaliy with such statements. Our leaders (Russia) do not have faith! They will sell everything for money! And the weapons listed are far from the first freshness.

    Correctly do what they are preparing, because the Japanese military is not asleep.
    Their political demands never change --- “Bring the Isles!”, But given the flexibility and openness of our political leadership, they are trying now to go “from the rear” with an emphasis on economic cooperation. But at the same time, such gentleness and complaisance should not introduce anyone misleading, because in addition to business, the Japanese are steadily strengthening their already strong fleet, and the reconstruction of the Japanese marines clearly indicates that, in a favorable situation, they will try to recapture the islands with a strike from the sea.

      They already had it in the plan, but Fukushima prevented ....

      I agree that they fluffed their tail notably, and their appetites only grow. Our Far East can not doze off, not at all.

    This is not a fact! Most likely, the two extreme islands will still give up, unfortunately. As suggested by the USSR, for a peace treaty. I really hope that I'm wrong.

      But this is unlikely. Heavily severe consequences will entail this. Economic, political, geopolitical, military,

    It’s good that the troops are improving ... the division is rearming and strengthening ... but where is the T-72 from? Until recently, the T-80UD were on Iturup. The donut hole in the Japs and mattresses, not the Kuril Islands.

    Of course, I don’t know about all the islands, but the exercises were held on the island of Kunashir, the Japanese territory there is within direct line of sight, including the city. During the exercises, local people complained about very poor communication, so I think that in addition to the above, the electronic warfare systems participated in the article. I’m from there myself, and I can say that I didn’t see the T-72 there, but I will readily confirm the words on the T-80 account))) Departing from the topic, literally yesterday morning in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk there was a check of warning equipment (“Air alert” signal ) Honestly, it was a little exciting, because by some coincidence Russia did not show 1/24 channels, but in the end it turned out that these were just exercises

      Since the division’s headquarters are on Iturup, and the division is “responsible” for three islands: Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan, they study there. I looked at Nemuro from Cape Oar)) And the 80s replaced the T-55. The photo is real - Kasatka Iturup Bay in the background Ivan the Terrible volcano. The Japanese in this bay were preparing for an attack on Pearl Harbor.
