Japan protests Russia’s plan to conduct live-fire drills off Northern Territories

Yomiuri and Sankei wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga said at a news conference on Monday that Japan has lodged a protest through a diplomatic channel against Russia’s plan to hold live-fire exercises in waters off Kunashiri in the Northern Territories near Hokkaido. The Japanese official reportedly said the planned drills, which could lead to a Russian military buildup on the islands, run counter to Japan’s position on the Northern Territories.
