NHK reported that in response to a call from the Georgian ambassador to Japan, ambassadors and other senior diplomats from 13 nations gathered at an unspecified location in Tokyo this morning to show their solidarity with Ukraine ahead of an imminent Russian invasion. The network aired video showing the envoys condemning Russia for violating the sovereignty of Ukraine while holding printouts of the Ukrainian flag at an outdoor space. “Now is the time for the international community to unite in confronting [Russia],” Georgian Ambassador Lezhava said in Japanese. “We support Ukraine. Our common goal is peace.” In response, Ukrainian Ambassador Korsunsky said in English: “All the nations are with Ukraine. Ukrainians must see this support. That will encourage them to fight.”
