Japan Ban Over Russia: Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said on Friday (May 26) that Japan will impose additional sanctions on Russia after the Group of Seven G7 summit held last week. Tokyo’s top government spokesman Matsuno on Thursday condemned Russia’s move to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, saying it would further escalate the situation surrounding an invasion of Ukraine.
Matsuno said in a press conference that Japan was the only country to have suffered atomic bombings during the war. Because of this, Japan will never accept Russia’s nuclear threat. Russia should give up its use. G7 leaders, including the US, Britain, Germany and France, showed their resolve to support Ukraine with additional military aid and sanctions on Russia last week at their annual summit in Hiroshima, the world’s first atomic-bombed city.
Assets of Russian officials will be frozen
Japan’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday (May 26) saying that in a joint action with the G7 countries, Japan will freeze assets of 78 groups and 17 individuals, including army officers, in Russia. In addition, Japan will ban exports to 80 Russian entities such as military-affiliated research laboratories.
A statement from the Japanese Trade Ministry said that Japan will also ban construction and engineering services to Russia, although Japan will also announce the date from when such ban will be implemented.
Britain has also banned
In the meeting of G7 countries held in Hiroshima, Japan, tough decisions were taken regarding Russia. In this, Russian Diamond was banned from Britain. On this, UK PM Rishi Sunak said that his main goal is to harm the economic benefits Russia gets when it is sent to other countries.
