Virtually all relations between Japan and Russia curtailed – Peskov

Russia "actually curtailed" all relations with Japan. This was stated by the press secretary of Russian President Vladimir Putin Dmitry Peskov, Interfax reports.

“We know that Japan takes a hostile position towards our country,” Peskov said.

But, commenting on the statement of the deputy of the upper house of the Japanese parliament, Muneo Suzuki, that Russia launched a “special military operation” because of Ukraine’s refusal to implement the Minsk agreements, the Kremlin spokesman said that “in Japan, among the irrational, unconstructive, rabid mainstream, there are also attempts to soberly assess what is happening.

Since the beginning of the war, Japan, as a G7 state, has allocated $600 million to Ukraine for humanitarian needs. Since February 24, the country's leadership has also condemned Russia's actions in Ukraine several times.
