Nikkei front-paged the disclosure by multiple GOJ sources that the Ukrainian government has asked Japan to provide data collected by its satellites, speculating Kyiv is hoping to analyze the images to ascertain the scope of the invading Russian forces since Japanese satellites are capable of accurately collecting data irrespective of weather conditions. Ukraine is reportedly calling on both commercial firms and governments to provide such data. The GOJ is reportedly handling the request extremely carefully since providing such data could help the Ukrainian military wage its counteroffensive more effectively and hence be construed as Japan becoming closely involved in an international conflict.
