This is not something to trumpet but to be embarrassed about, only 20%! Come on Japan, have some balls and a smidgen of morality and cut trade with the forces of evil in russia.

What's the difference with EU still buying oil and gas, just because they can't do without it? After the war these companies worldwide will go back and continue doing business with Russia, so one wonders what was the point then. If you got balls quit and pull out businesses and trades indefinitely, that will send Russia a stronger message

And this is why the world is where it is.
