Posted in: Kremlin says referendum result paves way to annex part of Ukraine See in context

so many experts above.just wondering if any of you ever have travelled to Ukraine or even understand either russian or ukraine languages....

UA had long time to prove its care about own citizens.since beginning of eighties through orange revolution than maidan in 2014 and until feb 2022 and it had failed to deliver.even heavily subsidied by Russia /gas,oil,products sold or offered at much lower prices than market prices/and same time provoking Russia by rhetoric and actions/with USA and NATO behind/.

i am not surprised at al that UA in its former borders from 2014 ended exist but always you have to look for reasons,look back in history,use your common sense before you are gong to "judge" about consequences.

Posted in: Abe's controversial state funeral may backfire on Kishida See in context

sure there is new empty suit ready in line when there will be call from boss for Fumio to go offline...business as usual.

in this country there is no real opposition able to defeat LDP and co and to offer brand new fresh vision or say plan for Japan with outlook for say next 10 years.there was one attempt in history as long as I remember good with Hatoyama and his party but they were gone in few months since could not do anything and reality have kicked in...

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics bribery arrests widens to third Japan sponsor See in context

btw how is previous prime minister doing?

i mean that charismaless guy who sure knew about all of this?no word to say,no investigation-nothing?

how about Mr.Bach and his comittee-no cash or "presents" received?

all of these so called Tokyo olympics was just big business for a few and misery for rest-just in name to save japanese face on front of world?

and all funded by taxpayers money...

Posted in: EVs at Detroit Auto Show? Consumers have questions See in context

i dont understand obsession about Detroit motor show and american EVs since these will be never imported to Japan and yes-this info may be interesting for readers in USA so from my point of view-its off topic and have to be moderated.

Posted in: Japan bans export of chemical weapons goods to Russia See in context

NemoToday 01:02 pm JST

Russia doesn’t have chemical weapons or want them

Sssshhhh. Don't tell the dead Russian ex-pats, the dead British lady who sprayed the Novocak on herself or the guy on the plane with the toxic underpants.

This is so laughably, provably incorrect - it again beggars belief that anyone would say/write it in seriousness.


btw how is uncle Skripal doing and his daughter as well...his role well over possibly they have "moved him away" as no more needed "piece" of UK antirussian propaganda?no words so far...they are "forgotten" as many before them as well.lime time is over.

highly likely yes.

about that other "pants activist" I will skip since its off topic anyway...

Posted in: Japan bans export of chemical weapons goods to Russia See in context

one fact.

Russia have destroyed own arsenal of chemical weapons a ling time ago under supervision of experts from UN/USA did not do that until now-why remaining "mystery"/.

question-means Japan producing products for chemical weapons?

this "peace loving" nation?

just wanted be sure as according this article it seems so?

some kind of napalm or stuff they have to use in Nanking some decades ago?

sure they have very good experience with it from past...

Posted in: Toyota to end auto output in Russia over war-induced supply crunch See in context

as I wrote above under article about Mazda same thing applies for production of Toyota cars in Russia.

russian new cars market is going be oriented for mix of own brands and chinese/korean cars and some other countries cars/planned import from Iran for example/.japanese used cars market demand still very strong there/today 1USD hit rate 57 for Ruble/and as ports are full of cars now shipping time some 3months from date of purchase as good average.

Posted in: The church itself does not have the power to pass bills. The church hasn’t given me specific suggestions, but I thought I should do what I could under the LDP umbrella. See in context

While Mima is correct that the Moonies can't pass bills, that's not the point. They can influence people like Mima to pass bills that benefit them. Mima probably votes the way the LDP leadership wants him to vote; eliminates all that time thinking.

You hit the nail man.100% agree.Moonies have to be banned,money property confiscated.leaders arrested.than all can be properly investigated.

Posted in: Europe's cars get a second life in Africa, but at a cost See in context

few facts.

african countries are actually in two groups.

one group with left handle drive cars/say north,west African countries,central African countries/are buying used european cars.demerit of these cars is unclear history/ownership,accident history,real mileage etc/.

another group of countries with right handle drive/say east Africa,south Africa and Namibia/are buying used UK cars/same demerits as for left handle drive cars from EU/from Singapore/same demerits like left handle drive cars from EU/or-mainly from Japan/merits are clear year of production even month,clear ownership history,clear accident history and real genuine mileage/.

as for Japan-african market is important one as africans are buying mostly rundown cars/say BW/.But not top market.Best market for used japanese cars is Russia,followed by UAE at this very moment.NZ lags well behind thanks to NZ aftercovid economy crisis.

Posted in: Mazda in talks to end car production in Russia See in context

Mazda simply closing as same as Toyota as sales went very bad and there is serious problem about logistics and delivery/supply of needed parts from abroad.

this does not means that Toyota or Mazda cars are unpopular in Russia,sales and exports of used cars/1yo-5yo/are hitting all time high records for last 5 years now-just to make picture complete.

Posted in: Europe faces dilemma on Russians fleeing Putin's draft See in context



antirussian campaign must continue at any cost.facts are facts however if these does not fit into "official" antirussian narrative-these are just simply skipped as media believes that everyones believes to their "min forming news" without checking of other sources...yes there were some small protests,some people runaway to other places,some people were arrested but reality is that these pictures are overplayed and reality is a little bit different.

reality is that parts of recent UA will be part of Russia in next few weeks and UA will be never back in its borders from say 1992....regardless of what USA EU or say western democracies will think about.

while this model was car of the year in 2022 in Japan and have quiet positive image abroad-here in Japan sales are hitting bottom end.

for 6+milions needed for brand new Outlander PHEV there are much better options on market.

Posted in: Young women in Japan want only one child or none at all: survey See in context

reason to marry is to have children and family.

if young women want have just one kid as max-this just confirms society heading to sharp decline of population/tax payers in next few decades.if they want to marry without plans to have any kids-there is no reason to marry at all than as couple can live same lifestyle without marraiage as well.

as Michael Machida wrote-jpn gov doing nothing to support young families with children.oyaji clans does not care about future of Japan as they need pocket piles of cash from budget now form them and their friends...

Posted in: Japan to launch domestic travel subsidy program on Oct 11 See in context

this money giveaway will be not game changer at all.

who have no plans for travel just because is overhelmed by work and traditional lifestyle-will not need these coupons.others who can travel or want travel will do so without coupons as well.

if gov wanted to help could give money cash for each household in Japan regardless income social status etc as all of as are equal on front of law.

Posted in: Hundreds demand cancellation of Abe's state funeral See in context

if they wanted to do so could use moonies money and also funds from LDP sponsors,did not need use any single yen form budget.

from my point of view its meaningless circuss funded by our taxes,to show great Japan image to other countries.completely meaningless one.

Posted in: U.S., Russia square off at U.N. over Ukraine See in context

let me be short and frank.

i am against war.i am against any war.regardless what country have ignited it and what country is in role of agressor.war is very bad and consequences are very horrible but same time time is good business for a few.as former citizen of Yugoslavia I can confirm by my own experience.i remember very well and will never forget.

now go back to topic.conflict in UA did not "just happen" and now we are talking just about consequences and using one sided narratives.every conflict have a reason and I am sure this one is no different.

if we are in position of judges to judge bad bad Russia lets think from point one what it was reason for this action and why all of this have happened.one more thing-as all of western leaders have full mouth of peace talk-why no one from them made any effort to stop this conflict and offer help and assistance for peace talk-but instead of this just keep sending guns to UA side?

now lets discuss if ready.with open minds.take in consideration situation there as whole.i am pretty sure that real picture may be "slightly" different...

Posted in: Kishida says Japan will ease COVID border controls from Oct 11 See in context

From October 11, Japan will restore individual tourism and visa-waiver travel to people from certain countries as long as they are vaccinated.

This is most crucial information well hidden in article.

As I have said before-dont expect any "hordes" or tourists here also because of this reason and face masks mandatories.
