One might not think about what happened almost a hundred years ago. One should think about what is happening now.

He said it with a straight face!? Maybe he meant he supports their reduction in other countries. Anyways, it's a good trolling.

"I came to show Russia's positive attitude towards the reduction of nuclear arms," he was quoted as saying, adding that the absence of an invitation to Saturday's ceremony "ignored this".

This is the same country who has openly threatened to use nuclear weapons several times this year

How about paying respects to the tens of thousands of innocent Ukrainians - many of them children - that have been murdered by your fascist government so far this year?

SIck, fascist hypocrite.

He should beg to visit Kiev to lay flowers for the Ukrainians murdered by Putin's invasion.

I would not want him in my country laying flowers for the dead when his nation is killing so many on a daily basis for territorial expansion. A bit sickening to be honest.

Just a PR stunt, trying to look so good.

Go to Ukraine, lay your flowers there for those who were butchered by your countrymen!

If Ambassador Galuzin is a sincere, honest and good man, then Putin will definitely purge him.

Forget about whatever cockamamie bull he spouted. Has anyone checked to make sure nothing valuable is “missing”?

Thanks to the Russian ambassador for paying respects to the victims of this breathtakingly shocking war crime.

Very Smart ambassador and staff, who ever made the decision NOT to invite him must have felt as little as his decision, you can't promote peace when you shut the doors in its face.

We should always remember the innocent people killed in Hiroshima

Why am I not surprised that JT's moderators eliminated my comment (first, by the way) but which many others have expressed?

Pretty sick moderators.

The guy is a diplomat , not a military bigwig involved in making decisions about the Ukraine invasion. Calm down.

Forget about whatever cockamamie bull he spouted. Has anyone checked to make sure nothing valuable is “missing”?

Classy comment....if you,d watched his interviews on NHK in flawless Japanese you,d know he is a highly intelligent individual. Certainly more so than all JT commenters , you and me included.
