Japan reacted to the appearance of T-72 tanks in the Kuril Islands


The Russian military leadership ordered the deployment of modernized T-72B3 tanks on the islands of the Kuril ridge, designed to attack small warships. Anti-ship systems "Bastion" and "Bal" have already been deployed on Iturup and Kunashir, which seriously complicates the landing of troops in these territories. On the attitude of the Land of the Rising Sun to the emergence of a new Russian tank equipment on the "controversial" from the point of view of Tokyo, the Japanese media reported.


According to the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, the new tanks will become part of the 18th machine-gun and artillery division - the operation of deploying the T-72B3 on the islands will take from two to three years, their exact placement is still unknown. The first units of tanks arrived on the islands this summer.

The Russian army is currently strengthening the defense potential of the "northern territories"

- notes the Japanese edition.

The new Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga previously spoke in favor of a final solution to the "island problem" with Russia and the development of harmonious relations with Moscow, considering the possibility of concluding a peace treaty with the Russian Federation. Earlier, the General Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan Katsunobu Kato announced the possession of Tokyo "full sovereignty over the northern territories." The Kremlin, on the other hand, has repeatedly stressed that the ownership of these islands by the Russian Federation is beyond doubt.

    To make a powerful and impregnable fortified area with a multi-level defense system on the Kuriles, missile systems must be reliably hidden underground or inside rocks, coastal areas and bays must be thoroughly mined !!!

      In the presence of nuclear weapons, even no tanks are needed on the neighboring islands, border guard posts with good communications are enough, and a couple of high-speed small ships for poachers and intruders. The whole question is about what precedent of violations, then we can foresee the operation of sufficient forces and means against violators. Most expected, a mass landing of civilians to populate the islands, so they culturally return home. For now, the Japanese are not ready to resolve the return of the islands by force, but with the beginning of the Sino-American serious butting and forceful pressure on the Russian Federation, the Americans can push the Japanese to more decisive actions ...

    The Russian Federation needs to place anti-ship missiles and air defense systems on Shikotan and stop all negotiations on the territorial affiliation of the territories that are now part of the Russian Federation. The very doubt that the Russian Federation belongs to the territories that are now part of the Russian Federation should be criminally punishable !!!

    The Japanese react incorrectly to the placement of Russian tanks. They would just buy a couple of dozen Turkish drones Bayraktar and Israeli IAI Harop, which successfully destroy the Armenian T-72 in Karabakh. bully

      In general, everything is not correct.
      It is correct to give the Japanese an official ultimatum: for every Russian killed, destroy a Japanese city the size of Hiroshima (or at least Nagasaki).

      All samurai hostility will be removed as if by hand. And not only the samurai.

        It would be correct to hand over the disputed territories to the Japanese and get the maximum payment from them today, because tomorrow (on a historical scale) it will have to be given away for nothing. And naive stories about the destruction of Japanese cities, even at the level of the sandbox, are not rolled - the destroyer has long been broken and rusted, and there is not enough character

            The "Palestinians" do not have their own land, just as the "Palestinians" do not have such a people. This people was invented by KGB analysts in the 60s. last century. Moreover, most of the leaders of the Arab world still do not perceive the Arab inhabitants of Israel as a separate nation. I remember that the father of the current Assad directly told Arafat, who was visiting him in Damascus, that there are no Palestinians and no Palestine, and these lands are the southern part of Syria ... lol

                  All for indemnity. These countries should be happy that they paid off so cheaply.
                  The Germans and Finns don't even stutter, unlike the stupid Japanese.

                  And you, the lands that never belonged to you, in a pirate way - took away. Please return back to the "aborigines"!

                      Well, that's why you think. History does not confirm this. Arabs have always lived there.
                      By the way, you too, if you consider yourself Arabs.

    The islands of the Kuril ridge are a war trophy received as a result of the Second World War, where the Japons took the side of Nazi Germany, and therefore must pay for this position and participation in the war on the side of Germany with their territories, as tsarist Russia once paid with its territories for the defeat in the 1905 war. Therefore, the dispute over the Kuril Islands is futile.
