Yomiuri, Sankei, and Nikkei wrote that the GOJ will probably include SDF bulletproof vests in the supplies it plans to provide Ukraine to help the nation’s military push back against the invading Russian forces. The items to be shipped will be selected in accordance with the three basic rules on defense equipment transfer that prohibits the export of offensive weapons. As the principles bar the shipment of weapons systems to “warring parties,” Yomiuri said the GOJ probably will not designate Ukraine as a warring party.
