Japan to impose new sanctions on Russia


Japan will impose additional sanctions on Russia after G-7 leaders at the recent Hiroshima summit agreed to tougher measures to punish Moscow for invading Ukraine.

Hirokazu Matsuno, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, announced it on Friday.

As a government spokesman, Matsuno also condemned Thursday’s decision to deploy tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, saying it would only exacerbate the situation surrounding the invasion of Ukraine.

“Being the only country to have suffered atomic bombings during the war, Japan will never accept a nuclear threat from Russia, let alone the use of nuclear weapons,” Matsuno told a news conference. .

G7 leaders, including the leaders of the US, UK, Germany and France, have shown their determination to support Ukraine with more military aid to Kiev and sanctions against Russia last week at their annual summit.

As part of a coordinated action with the G7, Japan will freeze the assets of 78 organizations and 17 individuals, including army officers.

Tokyo will also ban the export of goods destined for 80 Russian organizations, including military-related research labs, Japan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday.

Japan will also ban construction and engineering services from Russia, although details of the measure will be announced at a later date, the commerce ministry said.
