Russia notifies Japan of plan to conduct military drills near Northern Territories

Saturday’s Sankei wrote that it learned from a GOJ source on Friday that Russia has notified Japan of its plan to conduct missile firing tests near the Northern Territories starting on Japan’s “Northern Territories Day” on Feb. 7. Russia has also told Japan that it will conduct live fire drills near Kunashiri, one of the islands making up the Northern Territories, starting on Feb. 8. Japan has lodged a protest with Moscow through diplomatic channels by saying the drills will lead to Russia’s military buildup in the region.
