Japan is unhappy with the conduct of Russian military exercises in the Kuril Islands

29

The exercises, which the Russian military began conducting today in the South Kurils, are incompatible with the Japanese position. In this regard, Tokyo expresses its strong protest to Moscow.


This statement was made at a press conference by the Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan Katsunobu Kato.

This is incompatible with the position of our country and unacceptable.

- said the secretary general.

Kato called the exercise "a build-up of military preparations for the Russian army." Japan is unhappy with the fact that this is happening in the South Kuril Islands.

The official stressed that the authorities of the Land of the Rising Sun consider the four islands of the Kuril chain to be part of their territory. And they, in the opinion of official Tokyo, are subject to the sovereignty of Japan.

Despite this, the Japanese side realizes the importance of developing relations with the Russian Federation. She hopes to resolve the territorial dispute and conclude a peace treaty.

Kato also said that the final decision on the visit of the Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihide Sugi to the Russian Federation has not yet been made.

Military exercises on antiamphibious defense began in the Kuril Islands today, in which the machine-gun and artillery unit of the Eastern Military District (VVO) is participating. They involve about one and a half thousand servicemen and about 200 pieces of equipment.

      There is nothing to pollute the sea near the Kuriles. Better in the direction of the sunny country of the United States, there, for sure, they will understand and appreciate the ships that have sailed to them. They will also start catching and selling to some striking blacks or Latinos ...

          If the Japanese marines land on Shikotan Island, would you suggest the calibers to launch towards Tokyo?
          And even if it is launched, the world community will "tear" the Russian diplomats, freeze the accounts of the oligarchs, and so on. etc.....
          But how do you get Shikotan back?
          Calibers will not help here ...

    Russia has this opinion ... in parallel. The troops must be prepared, the options with the Japanese landing must be taken into account! Anyway, life on the islands is rather monotonous, the teachings diversify it laughing

      Vladimir, let me ask you how Japan can translate words into actions? Will they declare war?

    All the Kuriles are part of the Russian Federation, and in the Russian Federation we do what we want and do not care about Hitler's yellow allies.

    It is better for Japan to attend to the presence of the occupation forces on its territory, and not to meddle in the internal affairs of Russia.

    So what? I'm dissatisfied with the existence of Japan near our Kuriles. And I think, "This is incompatible with the position of our country and unacceptable."

    As I understand it, the Japanese are unhappy that Russia is their neighbor and occupies a certain territory, which the Japanese have looked after for themselves? Familiar song. But, as they say, do not open your mouth on someone else's loaf.
    In general, in the spirit of today, to demand from the Japanese the payment of reparations for their illegal possession in the XNUMXth-XNUMXth centuries. today's Russian territories.
