It is noted that during the G-7 summit in Hiroshima, the leaders of the states demonstrated their determination to support Ukraine with additional military assistance and sanctions against Russia.
“As the only country to have been subjected to atomic bombings during the war, Japan will never recognize the nuclear threat from Russia, let alone use it,” said Japanese Cabinet Secretary General Hirokazu Matsuno.
He condemned the actions of the Russian Federation regarding the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.
In a coordinated action with the G7, Japan will freeze the assets of 78 groups and 17 individuals, including Russian officers, and ban exports to 80 Russian organizations associated with military research laboratories, according to a foreign ministry statement.
Japan will also ban the provision of construction and engineering services to Russia, although the details of this action will be announced later.
