Nikkei and Sankei wrote that the MSDF announced on Tuesday that it will conduct joint exercises with the Russian Navy for search and rescue operations and ship inspections on Jan. 20-22 in waters off Maizuru in Kyoto Prefecture and Wakasa in Fukui Prefecture. This will be the first time in two years and three months for the two nations to conduct such training. Japan decided to go ahead with the training based on the judgment that military exchanges focusing on humanitarian operations would not undermine the G7 unity in imposing Ukraine-related sanctions on Russia.
