Yomiuri and Sankei wrote that the Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that six Russian vessels, including three naval ships, transited the Tsushima Strait. The ships reportedly did not intrude into Japan’s territorial waters. An MSDF patrol plane spotted the Russian ships at around 9 a.m. on Tuesday about 80 kilometers west of the Danjo Islands, Nagasaki Prefecture, before they passed through the strait toward the Sea of Japan. The ministry also said a Chinese navy reconnaissance vessel sailed eastward between Amami-Oshima Island and Yokoate Island in Kagoshima Prefecture. The vessel did not enter Japan’s territorial waters.
