Saturday’s Yomiuri wrote that Justice Minister Furukawa told Ukrainian Ambassador to Japan Korsunsky on Friday that Japan will take in more people who have been displaced by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As of March 9, a total of 13 Ukrainian evacuees had arrived in Japan. While expressing his appreciation for Japan’s efforts, Ambassador Korsunsky asked Furukawa to allow Ukrainian evacuees to work in Japan for the medium to long term even if they enter Japan on 90-day visas. Furukawa reportedly said his ministry will grant the appropriate residency status to Ukrainian evacuees if they hope to work in Japan.
