By 2027, Japan will be ready for a military operation in the "northern territories"

For many years, the possibility of a war between Russia and Japan for the retention of the Kuril Islands was considered purely theoretical. Too many factors had to converge for official Tokyo to seriously dare to make a real attempt to take away its former "northern territories" from the nuclear superpower that our country has always been considered to be. But in 2022, quite a lot has changed.

Japanese operation?

Quite a few reasons have recently accumulated to talk about this controversial topic again, and they are not very pleasant for us. So, on October 7, 2022, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a resolution regarding the Kuril Islands, which was frankly provocative:

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine declares its support for Japan's position regarding its "northern territories", and also recognizes that these territories are still under the occupation of the Russian Federation.

Ukrainian President Zelensky followed:

Today, an important decision has been made, fair, legally irreproachable, historical - Ukraine has confirmed its respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity of Japan, including its "northern territories", which are still under Russian occupation. Today I signed the relevant decree.

We, of course, laughed at all this, but in vain, because in Kyiv they are simply frankly voicing the plans of "Western partners" for the future of Russia. Among them: the military defeat and expulsion of the RF Armed Forces from the borders of Nezalezhnaya as of 1991, a coup in Moscow, forced denuclearization and the subsequent dismemberment of the Russian Federation into several dozen quasi-states at war with each other, their lifetime payment of reparations and indemnities to Ukraine, which itself should enter into composition of the European Union. Now we are talking about the territorial acquisitions of the USSR following the results of the Second World War. The Kuriles, it turns out, they want to force us to return to Japan, the Kaliningrad region, apparently, will somehow have to be divided between Germany and Poland.

Note that in Tokyo, for some reason, they did not laugh at Kyiv's decision on the status of the Kuriles, but, on the contrary, approved it. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida commented on the demarche of the Ukrainian regime as follows:

I consider it valuable that we receive understanding and support for the Japanese position from many countries, including Ukraine.

Why are all our western and eastern neighbors so bold?

Science non-fiction

Hypothetical scenarios of Tokyo's special military operation to "de-Russify" the Kuril Islands we have considered repeatedly, and here we have presented one of them in article dated January 21, 2022, even before the start of the Russian NWO. Allow yourself a little self-quotation:

Perhaps it will begin with a naval blockade of the islands by Japanese warships and the declaration of a no-fly zone over them. Undoubtedly, the US Pacific Fleet will be spinning nearby, not directly interfering in the conflict with Russia, but providing air defense and moral support to the allies. The Japanese will try to land troops in the Kuril Islands, and warning missile strikes will be launched on the approaching ships of the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation. The world will stand very close to that dangerous line, after which the Russian Defense Ministry will have the right to use nuclear weapons, starting with tactical ones, for "escalation with the aim of de-escalation."

Why are we talking about nuclear weapons? Because the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation will not be able to objectively resist the Naval Self-Defense Forces of Japan and the Air Force in conventional ways due to their clear numerical superiority, which we will discuss in detail told previously. And soon the alignment of forces in the East may change even more, not for the better for us.

Just the other day, official Tokyo adopted three regulatory documents that radically changed the fate of this island nation. In particular, within the framework of the updated National Security Strategy and Defense Strategy, Japan received the right to strike at targets on the territory of a potential enemy. The country's military budget will be doubled to $318 billion by 2027. These funds will be used, among other things, for the purchase of American Tomahawk cruise missiles, drones, as well as for the modernization of Type-12 ground-based ballistic missiles. Japan has now created its own Aerospace Forces, which will be equipped with fifth-generation F-35 fighters, and subsequently with some new fighters being developed jointly with European and American partners.

According to NHK, Japan will also create two new units of the Ground Self-Defense Force armed with high-velocity glide bombs:

Ministry sources say officials are considering establishing units around fiscal year 2026 and deploying them to posts in the northern prefecture of Hokkaido and the southwestern region of Kyushu.

High-velocity glide bombs are missiles that travel at supersonic speeds and are said to be harder to intercept than regular bombs. The ministry has been developing weapons since fiscal year 2018 to protect the outlying islands. Sources say the glide bomb has a range of several hundred kilometers, and the ministry plans to increase this to more than 1000 kilometers within a few years of deployment. They also say the ministry plans to deploy new GSDF anti-aircraft missile regiments in Okinawa Prefecture and Kyushu, increasing the number of such regiments from five to seven.

The ministry is also reportedly planning to deploy modified Type 12 surface-to-ship missiles with an extended range of about 1000 kilometers from fiscal year 2026. These missiles are considered as a component of Japan's counterstrike. The government will work to build understanding among the local communities where the missiles will be deployed.

The southwestern direction is, of course, against the PRC, the western one is the DPRK, and the northern one? On whose heads should supersonic planning bombs fly at a distance of up to 1000 kilometers from the island of Hokkaido? And the date sounds again - 2027, when the modernization of the second Japanese helicopter carrier should be completed, which Tokyo is converting into light aircraft carriers with American fifth-generation F-35B fighters on the decks. About the fact that it was then that Japan would be able to complete its rearmament program and what it potentially threatens us with, we told earlier.

It turns out that without the use of nuclear weapons it will be very difficult for us to actually stop Tokyo's aggression. The main forces of the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces and the RF Aerospace Forces have now been deployed to the Ukrainian front. The Russian Navy in the Black Sea was pretty battered, demonstrating a number of serious problems. The confrontation with the NATO bloc in Ukraine will go to exhaustion, and the advantage in terms of aggregate economic power is objectively not on the side of Russia. Nuclear weapons remain as a last resort, but a recent air attack by Ukrainian drones on airfields based on Russian Long-Range Aviation, clearly carried out with the help of intelligence and target designation from the Pentagon, showed that one of the components of the nuclear triad was vulnerable. It is urgent to close the identified gaps in the air defense! At the same time, for some According to, Japan itself can quickly acquire nuclear status.

In general, everything is difficult. So far, the point of no return on the Kuril issue, thank God, has not yet been passed, but one should be aware that Tokyo and Washington are most carefully studying the capabilities of the Russian aviation, army and navy, demonstrated during the NWO in Ukraine. In order not to tempt the Japanese authorities to a military adventure and not subsequently get into an armed conflict with a most dangerous enemy even in the East, Russia needs to complete the special operation within a reasonable time and as an unconditional winner, using the acquired military experience to modernize and re-equip the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Russian Navy and the Armed Forces RF.

    Why are all our western and eastern neighbors so bold?

    Because they saw the real state of affairs.
    And it is unrealistic to change anything without personnel decisions in the Ministry of Defense.

      the real state of affairs in the Far East has not changed, no one will land troops on Hokaido,
      Japan has 15 operating nuclear power plants with 33 nuclear reactors, two Vanguards across the islands and a chain reaction will go on...........

    I am sure that the government has realized the mistakes in recent years that have led to the current state of affairs in the Moscow Region ...... solid nepotism in the highest echelons of power, and not zeal for the motherland.

    Oh yeah! Western governments and Japan share their secrets only with Ukraine! Author, what do you have nothing to do to write this nonsense? Japan has no friends, only enemies. If even in Russia the Japanese are tolerated. Then in China and Korea (DPRK and South Korea) they are fiercely hated at the genetic level. In the Far East, Russia has only Vladivostok a large city, and everything else is a stockade of missiles scattered throughout the East. I don't think the Japanese want to die under our missiles.

    Given the sparsely populated Far Eastern regions of Russia, Japan may become the only state in the world against which nuclear weapons have been used in two armed conflicts in its entire history.

    A realistic scenario can be considered, but a pessimistic one can be considered - by the year 27 our country will turn into scattered territories, and the president of the Far Eastern republic will sign the transfer of the Kuril Islands in exchange for a friendship treaty with Japan. Sounds fantastic? I don’t know, it seems to me that the news of the central television and the reports of high-ranking generals of the m.o. are fantastic.

    The Kuriles are a territory of Russia. Article 67 of the Constitution obliges the Russian Federation to ensure the protection of its sovereignty and territorial integrity. With a military attack by Japan on Russia, the Russian Federation will launch a nuclear strike on Japan.

    By 2027, Japan will be ready for a military operation in the "northern territories"

    Firstly, one should not think that the Anglo-Saxons will wait until Japan completes its modernization.
    In turn, Japan will not act alone when it is possible to "disperse" enemy forces into at least two theaters spaced around the globe.
    For this reason, it is probably impossible to consider the operation of Japan in isolation from the plans of the Anglo-Saxons.
    This is how the forces and alliances of World War III will be formed (if Russia does not destroy these plans), adjusting their actions to the plans of the Anglo-Saxons.
    And Russia can easily destroy these plans - by bringing them to mortal fear for their lives with their strategic nuclear weapons and forcing them to actually retreat completely, as the USSR already did to them in 1962.
    Many problems will be solved at once and many tied knots will be unraveled:
    - the action of the force pushing the world to World War III will disappear
    - will lose nourishment and the Kyiv regime will die
    - Western countries will abandon sanctions and their economies will return to normal
    - the prospect of turning Europe into an industrial appendage of the United States will melt away like a mirage
    - the threat of a Chinese attack from the territory of conquered Russia with its nuclear weapons will disappear
    - Russia will get the opportunity and time to put itself in order and form a just state
    etc. etc.
    The main thing is that the world will avoid World War III and return to a stable state. Nuclear weapons, as a factor in guaranteeing peace, will restore their effect, which was lost due to the subordination of Russia to the Anglo-Saxons.
    The point is small - to restore the independence of the Russian authorities from them

    Well, great! When blocking the islands of the Russian Federation, you can check the anti-ship missiles in combat conditions, and I think since the conflict is inevitable, institutions need to be funded in order to be ready for rapid modernization for the results of combat use.

    The Japanese know that if they attack the Russian Federation, they will immediately receive a nuclear strike, so they wait and will wait until the Russian Federation weakens and loses the ability to launch a nuclear strike on Japan. Japan has many enemies China, Korea, North Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia .... the list is long, starting with the Russian Federation, they will receive from China and others. The Ainu people, this is their historical homeland of the Kuril Islands and the island of Hokkaido. The Russian Federation cannot deliver a nuclear strike on the territories of the former Soviet republics of the USSR, because. most Russians mentally believe that this is the territory of Russia. There will be a new time, there will be a new Russian government, which will build a new Russia throughout the territory of the former USSR. To understand what the Kuriles are, you need to go to the southern Kuriles, see Vladivostok, Sakhalin, Kamchatka.

      Maybe they knew and were afraid before ... And for the first month he was afraid of the green and hid in no one knows where. And then they saw that the colossus had feet of clay and no determination, and in fact many processes were controlled by the economic bloc that had an internship in the United States, and the oligarchs close to them were able to persuade and negotiate, and in extreme cases, they could blackmail relatives living on enemy territory ....

    The longer Russia tinkers with Ukraine, the more people will appear willing to take the skin of a weakened and cowardly bear. The use of tactical nuclear weapons becomes inevitable if we still want to live in Russia, and not in Rusland ...
