Japan announced claims to the Kuril Islands

On March 7, speaking in the Japanese parliament, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced the claims of the “Land of the Rising Sun” to the South Kuriles. In his speech, he called the islands "a territory over which Japan has sovereignty", as reported by the Japanese media.

The Northern Territories are the territory belonging to Japan, the territory over which Japan has sovereignty.

Kishida said.

It should be noted that for many years Tokyo has been restrained in its official statements to Moscow on this issue. The countries tried several times to negotiate and amicably resolve the territorial dispute, but every time Washington interfered with this process.

After Russia launched a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine, the Japanese side joined the anti-Russian sanctions of the West. On the 12th day of Moscow’s special operation, Tokyo became so bold that it publicly spoke about “ancestral territories”, openly harming Russian-Japanese relations and the possibility of concluding a peace treaty (de jure states are still at war).

At the same time, Japan, being under US occupation for decades, still does not recognize all the results of the Second World War, which are dictated by the act of unconditional surrender of 1945. By "northern territories" the Japanese mean three islands - Kunashir, Shikotan and Iturup, as well as the Khabomai ridge, which are part of the Sakhalin region of the Russian Federation.

Russian military expert Boris Rozhin decided to express his personal opinion about Japan's territorial claims. In his Telegram channel Сolonelcassad, he suggested several steps.

Cancel the declaration of 1956 regarding the discussion of the issue of the South Kuriles.

In addition, he suggested that the authorities of the Russian Federation announce that Moscow would never again discuss the problems of the Kuril Islands with Tokyo - this is the territory of Russia.

Clearly articulate that Japan's attempts to return the islands by force will be regarded as a threat to the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation and may lead to the use of nuclear weapons against the Japanese aggressor

- summed up Rozhin.

    It is quite expected.
    At a time when Russia was busy with the war in Ukraine, Japan publicly announced that it intends to join the 3rd World War for the redivision of the world. So far, this war is only against Russia. But this is for now.
    While she is a hybrid, but this does not prevent her from being a war.
    We have only one means to stop the war of interested states against Russia - a real threat to them with physical destruction.
    Let's remember: "We do not need peace if there is no Russia in it." And also about heaven.
    This should not remain empty words. At a minimum, this tool should stop the war against Russia, but it is possible that the entire 3rd World War will be postponed indefinitely

    In Soviet times, it was believed that the threat of the USSR using nuclear weapons kept peace on the planet. And so it was. For this purpose, the USSR once scared the Americans to death, forcing them to retreat in Turkey and Italy with their first strike missiles.
    Why is the factor of our nuclear weapons not working now?
    That's why it doesn't work, because in order to turn into a real threat to nuclear weapons, you still need the determination to use them.
    With our timidity and reliance in everything on international law (recall the recent statement of the "nuclear five" on the prevention of nuclear war), we sent and are sending completely different signals to the enemy

      From a dead donkey, the ears of Japan, not the Kuriles. Following the results of the Second World War, the Kuril Islands are an integral part of the territory of Russia.

    Memorandum from the Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Powers to the Japanese Imperial Government No. 677 January 29, 1946

    3. For the purposes of this Directive, the territory of Japan is defined as: the four main islands of Japan (Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku) and approximately 1000 minor adjacent islands, including the Tsushima Islands and the Ryukyu Islands (Nansei) north of 30° north latitude (excluding Kuchinoshima Island), and excluding:

    c) the Kuril (Tishima) Islands, the Habomai (Khabomadze) Islands Group, including the Sushio, Yuri, Akiyuri, Shibotsu and Taraku Islands), as well as the Sikotan Island.

  6. Russia is not interested in the opinion of the countries occupied by the States. But it is worth voicing the nuclear threat to Japan, if only because our non-nuclear forces in the Far East are still weaker than Japan's.

      Have you decided to make someone laugh, Pereyaslov Konstantin Vladimirovich? among other things, as part of the Pacific Fleet -4 strategic missile submarines: 1 project 667BDR "Kalmar" - K-44 "Ryazan" and 3 project 955 "Borey" - K-550 "Alexander Nevsky", K-551 "Vladimir Monomakh" and K-552 "Prince Oleg"; So, only one submarine out of three, Project 955, is capable of turning Japan into another desert on the planet (with the proviso that life exists in the Sahara, Gobi, Karakum and others, and how ..... but in Japan it already it won’t ... at all)) so think about what you write) but what about non-nuclear forces and which are weaker, but what will prevent Russia from making them stronger in the shortest possible time? The transfer and strengthening of the local forces, is this an unrealistic and insoluble problem?

    Well, the statements of the peep-eyed should be regarded as a request to repeat the nuclear bombing of 45, which was carried out by the states, so the time has come for us to remind them of our place in the world .... And there is no need to look back at the world community - why can the states be bombed, but we can’t? ...

    In 1962, the USSR convinced the United States of its determination to use first-strike nuclear weapons against them by firing a "warning shot" from the Aginsk test site at a test site on Novaya Zemlya. It was a R-14U missile with a thermonuclear warhead with a standard explosion at the experimental field of the test site.
    The Tulip exercises were held on the day the first batch of missiles was unloaded in Cuba.
    That lesson worked for a long time, but it is already forgotten.
    After all our "peaceful snot", in order to convince the Americans, we will have to at least do something similar, or even more abruptly

    The greatest stupidity on the part of the Government of the Russian Federation may turn out to be even a hint of any negotiations with Japan regarding our Kuriles!
    Let me remind you, oh Hokkaido should be transferred to the Russian Federation for two good reasons:
    1. As compensation for the war crimes of the American-Japanese intervention in Russia in 1918-1922. , then thousands of Russian citizens died in the Far East of our country. Several hundred civilians were brutally tortured by the Japanese right in Khabarovsk in one of the houses in the city center (there is a memorial plaque on this house), others were shot (there is a “monument to the executed Partisans”), others died in battle;
    2. The island of Hokkaido was discovered by Russian sailors in the XNUMXth century before the formation of Japanese statehood. But weather conditions did not allow the Russian squadron to land on this island, then uninhabited by people. The landing was postponed "until better times." Later, the Japanese called the typhoon that prevented the Russians from approaching Hokkaido "kamikaze" - which means "wind of the gods". But we know that God is always with us, and his idea is much more complicated than the joy of the samurai.
  13. Salmon tail splashed on the wave
    The islands disappeared in the fog
    They will not return
    Deal with Nihon ...

    We have very little time left until the moment when new goals, new players and new interests appear in World 3. Then our threat of destruction to the States and England alone will not be enough to turn everything back. And the war will keep on its goal and our opponents.
    In addition, our own time track after the imposition of comprehensive sanctions has become short.
    On it, we need to manage to win, and (or) increase it by restructuring the economy, incl. - to the domestic market
