Interesting timing.

Have they secured the safety of Fukushima Dai-ichi?

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Releasing thousands of tons of radioactive water into the Pacific must be ‘impermissible’ too,yet here we are…

2 ( +8 / -6 )

“Russia's attacks on Ukrainian nuclear facilities are absolutely impermissible,” Hayashi said.

Russia never attacked the power plants- they are protecting them.

-2 ( +7 / -9 )

Kickback to IAEA for approving the release of Fukushima contaminated water.

Goodness gracious !

Japan definitely isnt the poster child for nuclear reactor safety standards.

China sounds more responsible in this article which is odd.

Japan is one nuclear disaster after the other !

Russian has taken over Ukraine largest nuclear power generation,and force Ukraine to buy electricity from their own plant

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Donating our tax money?

jpn gov have no money to give to own citizens and have no money to solve in secure way radioactive waste from Fukushima but have money to sponsor UA oligarkhs and their war and have money to pay for Chernobyl...also have money for outdated overpriced outlet US weapons and for US occuppying forces costs at their own soil...what is going on here folks?

Eastman, Japanese will give Ukraine 1.5 billions free dollars ,while the US give 7.5 billion dollars free ,Russian have strangle Ukraine economy,they have no outside trade,with anybody,no income with the world

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

More money for the people working there...

How does one write "payola" with kanji characters?

2 ( +5 / -3 )

You can’t call giving money to the IAEA a bribe just because they allowed The LDP to release gigantic amounts of radioactive material into the North Pacific Ocean. That would be a conspiracy theory.

Quid pro quo…..

let me be honest you may be really naive.

there is nothing "free" in this world especially when comes to arms sales...as in this conflict there is one and only country involved but will make/and already making/a lot of money out of peoples suffering.

I mean good I guess but doesn’t TEPCO fail and get reprimanded yearly for having its safety standards being lax for nuclear power plants…

Sure.. a "donation". Definitely nothing to do with the plan to release radioactive water into the ocean.

Japan acts so worried about radioactive contamination on Ukraine, that it even sends additional money, separate from it's membership fee, to IAEA, while it happily decides to dump it's own radioactive stuff into the ocean.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Interesting how now frequently we can read what China has to say.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Thanks IAEA for flying in & declaring our plan to dump all the radioactive water in the ocean is "safe". Here is your $2.1 million donation. No connection.

Hayashi said. “Japan, which suffered the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, condemns the acts in the strongest terms.”

Did LDP also condemn the TEPCO management in "strongest terms " for the Daiichi disaster? Guess not ,but they did also paid out million$$ to the responsible old boy oyajis for their golden parachutes so guess we have a similarity there. TIJ.

Japan helping out and once again being criticized for it by pro Russian trolls and anti Jgov posters.

As someone not in either of those groups, I say it is a welcome contribution. Well done Japan.
