Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced the decision after meeting with the British prime minister in London, without naming the individuals affected by the sanctions. Their assets in Japan will be frozen
Japan will expand sanctions against Russia, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said after meeting with his British counterpart Boris Johnson in London, Reuters reports.
According to Kishida, the list will include 140 more individuals, their assets in Japan will be frozen. In addition, Tokyo will expand export restrictions on Russian defense companies. He did not provide details.
After the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, Japan imposed several packages of sanctions against Russia. In particular, the country joined Western sanctions against the Central Bank and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Tokyo blocked the assets of VEB, Promsvyazbank and Rossiya Bank. The government banned transactions with Russian sovereign debt in the primary and secondary markets and imposed a ban on the supply of products to the Russian defense structures, as well as limited the export of dual-use goods and semiconductors to the country.
On May 4, Russia retaliated by banning 63 Japanese citizens from entering. The restrictions included Kishida, Cabinet Secretary General Hirokazu Matsuno, Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi, Finance Minister Shun'ichi Suzuki, Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi and Justice Minister Yoshihisa Furukawa, as well as members of both houses of the Japanese Parliament. Prior to that, back in March, Moscow refused to negotiate a peace treaty with Tokyo.
Kishida called the new sanctions unacceptable, since the responsibility for the aggravation of relations between Japan and Russia, I think it lies entirely with Moscow.
