Actually, Chinese Yuan, Indian Rupees or South African Rand

Problem with the Yuan is that it isn't fully convertible. The South African economy is much too small to stand up against Anglo-American, French and German economic warfare. The Rupee could be a very good bet but do Indian authorities want it stronger than it is at present?

"After Russia launched its war in Ukraine last month, oil giant Shell said it would sell its 27.5 percent stake in Sakhalin-2 in Russia's far east."

No way! That would just be beyond the pale for even Putin. Surely the Russians will nationalize that 27.5% stake without compensation.

So is Japan going to be buying rubles or are we all going to have to live off sashimi? Personally I like sashimi but would prefer to be able to cook food from time to time.

Europe should remain united in order to promote democracies in the post-communist Eastern European states and preserve Western liberal values.

To say Western Europe and North American regimes care about democracy or liberal values is so mind-numbingly boorish that it's surely a joke. They care about it when it suits the interests of the ruling classes in those countries and fight against it whenever it doesn't.

A good first step to get out from under the American yoke. Right now, the most vital is for Japan to get rid of its US$ accounts. Otherwise of the major holders of US$, Japan seems likely to be the last one holding a bag of useless paper. China and India moving rapidly to get rid of their US$ holdings.

Everyone enjoying their experience under socialism?

Socialism is to blame for falling wages and rising prices in capitalist Japan?

Posted in: Japan to see higher prices for food, daily goods from Friday See in context

The bitter, inexorable tendency of capitalist economy. As if the richest 1% care about paying an extra 20yen for a sandwich. It's the working class, 95% of the population which pays the price. The good news is that it can't go on for much longer. It's reached a point of inflection. 3 possibilities: 一 civilization ending war. 二 mass riots leading to a Hunger Games style dystopia. 三 social revolution sweeping away the barbarism of capitalist society.

Posted in: Japan lists 7 items for supply action over current Russia dependence See in context

So Japan is going to get into a bidding war for alternative supplies while Russia sells to the loser of the bidding war for twice as much as if there were no sanctions. Makes sense.... I hope Japan stops being a USA poodle soon. It's not doing Japan any good.

Posted in: Russia says it will scale back military operations near Kyiv See in context

Its been turned into a platform where the Russian army is being decimated by Western supplied weapons, and also a platform that gave the West a reason to destroy the Russian economy.

yeah, all we read about is how the Russian army is being decimated by the fanatical democrats of the Azov Battalion and etc while the winning side begs for no-fly zones, tries to sue for peace and etc.

Insofar as the Russian economy, western countries broke themselves on the Russian economy. Is the ruble now worth more than it was before the war started?

Y'know, it took Russia three weeks to conquer Warsaw back in 1939.

You have a very sick but vivid imagination.

The facts of the matter are crystal clear: over one month into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and Kyiv is, well, not conquered.

If the Russians were unleashing rocket artillery, heavy bombers and etc against Kiev, as it did on Nazi occupied Warsaw in 1945, it would be ruble but well and truly conquered.

Posted in: Russia says it will scale back military operations near Kyiv See in context

it would be a genius move for Japan to drop the sanctions on Russia. I mean, the meaningful sanctions. As if they care about not being able to Japanese luxury goods in Moscow as opposed to traveling to Armenia, Kazakhstan and etc for them. Or they are hardly upset about not being able to strut around Kabuki cho at night. But use some pseudo legal argument to drop the serious sanctions because USA won't allow Japan to merely drop the sanctions because it wants to. Germany is going to be buying rubles or EU is going to plunged into economic depression. India and China have already dropped the US$ and Euro in the very significant trade with Russia.

The end of Anglo-American, French and German global tyranny has arrived. I'm not saying Japan should pick a side, just be neutral and trade with everyone, be friends with everyone.

Zelenskyy will be “Man of the Year

Even before the war Zelensky banned two political parties and arrested the leaders of one, froze their bank accounts and etc. The other, the Communist Party leaders fled to Russia. He also ordered the closure of 6 TV stations which criticized his regime and banned by far the most popular social media platform. He continued and actually escalated the war in the east and adamantly refused to implement the peace agreement brokered by Russia, Germany and France.

So the Nobel Peace Prize, named after the inventor of dynamite, is almost assured!

That’s far from a fact. It’s also far from an ‘operation to liberate’. But you know this already.

Really? Well here is the link. What does it show?

And now the Japanese state is going to be buying rubles as well if it wants to keep the lights on. Putin squandered a lot of goodwill by blaming Lenin for Ukraine but even so, people should get used to the fact the Russians are winning. In the economic war and in the military conflict.

Actually you can buy them in most supermarkets now. Just check the toilet paper aisle.

Mildly funny but doesn't change the fact that the ruble is rapidly heading into positive territory compared to before the operation to liberate the Ukraine began.

I think you should put all your money into rubles. Go ahead, tell us all about it next week.

Not a bad idea at all but is it possible to hold rubles in Japan? Can one even buy them from Sumitomo or Tokyo Mitsubishi?

As long as ethnic Russians in east Ukraine are threatened, Russians will continue fighting.

Russians and Ukrainians are the same ethnicity. If NATO says 7-15k Russians have died, it probably means less than 3.5k while the 400k strong Ukrainian army has been reduced toll sheltering among civilians and the Azov Battalion has been decimated. 40k Azov Battalion fighters trapped in Mariupol.

At the end of this war with Putin gone, the islands are likely to return to Japan.

This is political erotica. May provide some enjoyment but won't lead to any positive practical results.

In this wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azov_Battalion in regard to the number (which is 10s of 1000s) would you be so as to cite exactly where this quote you cited is?

in 2017, the size of the regiment was estimated at more than 2,500 members,[22] but by 2022, it has been estimated to be 900 members.[2]

In says that it "included" 900 volunteers. Well, yeah it "included" that number and a lot more. But of course the hardcore neo-Nazis are leaders while lots of the fighters aren't hardcore fascists but join due to the US$1000 monthly base salary with lots of bonuses. No way Ukraine can afford that. I wonder who is paying them.....

How many neo-Nazis are there in Ukraine? Heck, how many in the Azov Battalion?

Azov Battalion alone has 10s of 1000s of members. They have been getting massive state support and NATO support for 8 years.

And? Russia still invaded Ukraine. And they funded the seperatist movements in Dombass and Lukhansk, which lead to the creation the Azov Battalion.

And NATO funded the ultra-right coup against the democratically elected government which led to the conflict in Donbas and Lugansk.

Russia should look within and accept peace with the world because not matter what, the world is going to take care of Russia on it's own terms.

The "world" does not equal USA, Canada, Western Europe, Japan, Australia.

There are many other countries and regions including some which are quite significant. Like China for example. 5000 years of history, the most populous, 3rd largest land area, comfortably the largest real economy. You should look into it. Not as significant as Australia for example but not completely insignificant either. The there is India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Nigeria and many more. The "world" is a big place. You should check out an atlas sometime.

They’ve just used the peace talks as a convenient way to extract money and investment from Japan.

The naivety is incredible. You think Japanese investors were investing in those regions due to some vague idea about bringing them under Japanese jurisdiction? They invested there because they saw it as a money making opportunity.

Russia continues to isolate itself.

The vast majority of the world refuse to condemn Russia for the war in Ukraine and refuse to join any sanctions regime against Russia. That includes China, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Brazil, Argentina, Iran and etc etc. i.e. the largest countries on every continent or sub continent except Europe and North America.
