Mainichi reported on remarks made by Ukrainian Ambassador to Japan Sergiy Korsunsky on Wednesday at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan. He reportedly commented on the current tensions with Russia by saying that although it is highly unlikely that a full-scale war would break out between Russia and Ukraine, there may be localized conflicts. Korsunsky reportedly added that Ukraine is not threatening any nation, would never attack Russia, and wants to solve the problem peacefully through diplomatic negotiations. The envoy also said he wants Japan to get more involved in multinational efforts to ease the military tensions with Russia because Japan has an important role to play as a G7 member. Asahi and Sankei ran similar reports.
