 Russian Defense Minister Shoygu disclosed that a total of 392 military-related facilities are being built on Etorofu and Kunashiri Islands in the Northern Territories. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told the press on Dec. 3, “The Japanese government is constantly monitoring Russia’s moves.” A Japanese government official said, “We will closely examine the defense minister’s remarks,” indicating that the government will not protest against the construction for the time being. The administration shelved the protest because the military-related facilities apparently included facilities for recreation and family members.
