All national papers wrote on Saturday that the House of Representatives is expected to adopt a resolution on March 1 criticizing Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. The draft motion reportedly mentions President Putin by name, describing his military’s actions in the neighboring country as a serious breach of international law and a grave violation of the UN Charter. “We condemn the aggression by the Russian military in the strongest language,” the draft reads. Sankei added that when the Diet approved motions earlier this month expressing apprehension about the rising tension there, it stopped short of singling out Russia by name out of consideration for bilateral economic exchanges.
