Monday’s Yomiuri front-paged the results of its monthly public opinion survey that put support for Japan’s sanctions on Russia at 82% and nonsupport at 9%. More than three out of five respondents said Tokyo should continue taking a concerted approach with the United States and Europe in dealing with the Russian invasion of Ukraine while 28% said Japan should pursue diplomacy on its own. Slightly over 80% felt that the Ukrainian crisis will end up posing a threat to Japan’s national security. Over half of respondents approved of Prime Minister Kishida’s handling of the situation while 29% felt otherwise. Both cabinet approval and disapproval remained almost unchanged from last month at 57% and 28%, respectively.
