I am sorry, but this does violate US and EU sanctions.
Well, luckily Japan isn't under the jurisdiction of the US or EU.

China is putting economic sanctions on Japan.

No one's going in and no one's coming out, so what does it matter
Quite a few North Korean defector literally "escape" South Korea to go back to the North.

This is projection. The Russians haven't made any such threat.

The sanctions are having a greater negative effect on Japan than Russia. Russians can't buy Prius cars but Japan is still buying oil, gas, fish, metals and much more and paying much more for it than before the sanctions. Uni Qlo closed but it's not as if Russians can't but Bangladeshi, slave labor made clothing in other shops.

If that were truly the prime purpose of NATO, russia would have disappeared long ago.
Big words from NATO lickspittles. Sounds just like Hitler. How did this thinking work out for Hitler?

Ukraine has never applied for NATO membership, even though it is an aspirational goal of theirs.
No. The far right, extremely unpopular, NATO lackey coup regime in Ukraine had aspirations to join NATO. Of course they did. The majority of the population of Ukraine had/has no fear of Russia. Quite the contrary. As for the coup regime and it's Azov Battalion, Aidir Regiment, C14, Right-Sektor enforcers, they have literally everything they have to fear for.

Heh, Heh, Heh... Russia is scared.
Heh, heh, heh... Yep, the mighty Finnish armies are coming for Russia!

As long as they don't allow the population to decide via a referendum, it should be ok. I mean, ok insofar as joining but it will only have negative consequences for the security of Finland. And of course Finland directly participated in the invasion of the Soviet Union and siege of Leningrad.

Every strike in and around Odesa is hitting NATO or NATO proxy targets. They not only have to conceal their defensive positions from Russian forces but from the local people who are tripping over themselves to help the Russians.
I know it's not how imperialism works but if it were possible, the best thing to do is leave the Russians (including Ukrainians, White Russians, Kazakhs) to themselves and they'll just swill vodka, pump out little Red Army soldiers and be happy. As soon as they are threatened they sober up and don't stop fighting until they are no longer threatened.

The birth rate is less than 2 kids for every 2 adults. So one doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to work it out. Is Japan going to increase taxes on the richest 2% by at least 3 or 4 times and give it to families to encourage more kids or is Japan going to stick to free market principles and go extinct?

More than 80% of Nazi German casualties in WW2 were on the Eastern front. We should be celebrating the brave fighters from the former Soviet Union
Germans calculate 86% of their losses were on the Eastern Front. And about 5% were from the Partizans of Yugoslavia. Another 5% from communist partisan attacks elsewhere in occupied Europe.

Now they are "sanctioning" not "censoring" Russian media. Why do they fear the public knowing the Russian perspective so much? If it's so absurd and Russia is evil and all that stuff, wouldn't it be better to let the general public see it for themselves?

Sweden will become a failed state just like the masses swamping the country are used to
Unless they send them back
The majority, or vast majority, are already citizens.
