In his opening remarks, Kihara told Ukraine Defense Minister Rustem Umerov that Moscow's "outrageous act is utterly unacceptable"

No, what was an utterly unacceptable outrageous act is everything that happened since 2014 and finally led to Russia's response. It was not an unprovoked invasion. Japan should stay out of it.

Sending a letter to an uninvolved party and then launching an invasion after saying there will be no invasion can only be described as outrageous. Also driving for the decapitation strike.

Why should Japan stay out of it? Japan also is technically still at war with Russia as no peace treaty has been signed for 80 years and they still have territory illegally occupied by Russia as well.

There’s no point in prolonging the war by giving the Western puppet Zelensky continued support. The real losers of the war are neither Ukraine nor Russia but ordinary citizens of Ukraine. I’m sure they’re ready to accept the loss of some of their territories as the price of peace.

Thanks Japan. Correct decision.

Has your country surrendered some territory as proof of this concept? Also Zelenskyy and Ukraine did pretty good killing Russians for puppets.

Taiwan, you may be a bot, but please tell us which letter you are talking about. I must have missed this fact.

I shouldn't have to respond to Impolite to Other User comments but:

Even if it was there, the invasion should have started back in 2014, at least immediately after the bombing of Lugansk by new authorities of Ukraine who came to power after the coup , after maidan.

Russia did invade in 2014, before the maidan was even finished. Didn't even bother with the pretense of waiting for alleged war crimes.

Today it is exactly ten years since Ukraine first bombed the administration of the city of Lugansk. 8 people were killed. Including children...

What a shame. You can imagine the size of the violin I'm playing compared to Russia's displacement of millions.

Tokyo has provided financial assistance to Kyiv as well as nonlethal defense equipment such as vehicles, bulletproof vests and drones.

Remember this when reported here some time ago. Have not seen any visuals of them in the theatre of operations. Not saying there aren't there, just not seen them in-country. The May exhibition of captured gear by RFAF didn't feature any. They have practically knocked/burnt out or captured an example of everything from the alphabet soup of hand-me-down gear over there and they love showing off foreign stuff for everyone to see.

Bulletproof vests won't be much help when a UMPK-equipped glide bomb comes sailing in.

The 'maidan' was a violent coup which overthrew an elected government. That was the catalyst for everything the civil war that followed and ultimately the destruction of their own country. It was an outrageous act that was utterly unacceptable

Let's not try and rewrite history Mr Kihara.

Nato has it’s own fault as well with this war,Russia reacted to a massive provocative from the coalition.

Imagine if Russia was going to build bases in Canada and Mexico,do people think that the US would allow it?

Russia is no good country in it’s government but the US is hypocritical as well.
