NTV reported that it learned from several government and ruling coalition sources that Ukrainian President Zelenskyy sounded out the GOJ on the possibility of him virtually addressing the Japanese Diet to express opposition to Russia. The network said the GOJ received the request through the Ukrainian Embassy in Tokyo. Noting that President Zelenskyy has already delivered an online speech before the UK Parliament, the network said he is hoping to demonstrate his strong opposition to the Russian invasion at the Japanese Diet as well. The network added, however, that a virtual speech at the Japanese Diet is unprecedented and the GOJ is carefully considering the idea. TBS and Fuji TV carried similar stories.
