“Russia will not cope with Japan”: Yahoo Japan readers spoke again about the Kuriles

Users from the Land of the Rising Sun on the Yahoo Japan portal commented on the recent visit of Russian presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev to the South Kuril island of Iturup. Earlier, the Japanese side expressed a protest on this issue through diplomatic channels, which was immediately rejected by Moscow.

Japan officially lays claim to a number of islands in the Kuril chain, which were occupied by the Soviet army in the last days of World War II. In turn, the Russian authorities do not recognize the existence of a territorial problem, declaring that all the islands belong to the Russian Federation following the results of the war.

It is worth noting that the tone of many commentators in the foreign press is becoming more aggressive. And it's not just about the Japanese. The rhetoric about the “colossus with feet of clay” is beginning to sound like an axiom in public discussions of states neighboring the Russian Federation, which carries a certain threat.

All opinions expressed are those of their respective authors only.

Japanese comments:

Enough protests. The current Russian forces in the Far East, especially the navy, are only remnants of their former greatness, and they were not even close to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces. According to the Chisima-Karafuto* exchange agreement, the northern Kuril Islands were already ceded to Japan. This is what the Japanese Communist Party constantly reminds of […] The warships of the Naval Self-Defense Forces are quite capable of blockade of the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin. And Russia itself should no longer be afraid

mma said.

Before the events in Ukraine, we thought that Russia was such a powerful country with the most powerful army in the world after the United States. However, it is now clear that she will not be able to cope with Japan, if something happens. Yes, Japan is not stupid enough to go to a war of this magnitude, but not so weak as to lose it if you really have to go on a campaign

- said g97.

We will never return these islands if we don’t support Ukraine and start our own planning for South Sakhalin and the Kuril Archipelago

rxo said.

Protest through diplomatic channels. It would be better to break off these diplomatic relations

hama replied.

I don't think that Russia, this third-rate poor country in decline, will be able to develop such a remote island. The Far East is still full of unpaved dirt roads, so shouldn't they be redone in the first place?

- Hajime Fukumoto spoke out (in the original source, the name is completely written in hieroglyphs).

Every time North Korea launches a missile, the authorities say they will protest through diplomatic channels, but then simply send a fax to them. Is the protest sent to Russia also a fax?

- ironically bnc.

*Obviously, the Japanese user is referring to the St. Petersburg Treaty of 1875 between the Russian Empire and Japan, according to which the latter received all the Kuril Islands, but ceded all rights to Sakhalin to the Russians. The treaty was no longer in force following the results of the Russo-Japanese War. Chisima is the Japanese name for the Kuriles, and Karafuto is the name of the Japanese part of Sakhalin Island in 1905-1945.

    the claw is stuck, the whole bird is gone, how to force the Japanese to lose their vigilance suicidal attack on the second nuclear power in the world to lose Hokaido and make the Sea of ​​Okhotsk an inland sea of ​​the Russian Federation, providing Russia with its independent exit from the Sea of ​​Japan through La Perouse ??

    the cat looks cunning, using his witty plan to catch mice - he pretended to be dead, and hung on a pole with his face down, so that the mice had the complete impression that he was hung, and when the mice touched him, the cat just tumbled to the ground as if indeed, he is dead, and then the mice lost their vigilance and, quite insolent, began to dance on the cat, for which they paid with their lives. The cat quickly brought them to their senses, jumping to his feet and tearing to pieces two dozen mice.


    34. Stratagem of self-mutilation (苦肉計 pinyin: kǔ ròu jì)
    Nobody ever wants to hurt themselves.
    If someone gets hurt, then there is no catch.
    If a lie seems so true that the truth seems like a lie
    The trick worked. By pretending to be wounded, you get two possible advantages: first, the enemy calms down and lowers his guard, since he no longer sees you as a serious threat;

    it also works for the NWO... the task is to destroy more ukrofascists so that later it would be easier to re-educate Ukrainians with schizophrenia? Is it necessary to instruct the Ukrainian military commissars to gather the most stubborn Ukrainian fascists into groups and send them against our missiles, tanks and machine guns? But! How to convince stupid Ukrainians to attack, and believe that the Russians do not know how to shoot, that concrete can be pierced with their fists if they are very brutalized and angry (Western instructors help to accept the brutality mm in the interests of the Russian Federation)? let them run in crowds to our concrete fortifications, under our shells, mines, rockets and machine guns, and believe that they can occupy the Crimea? ... yes, they need to easily give Kherson, all the more crowded with fools poisoned by dill propaganda, whose houses have not yet been burned ... in them and crowds run to machine guns ...

          I meant the underestimation of the enemy and the overestimation of their own forces.

          Russia was forced to launch an NMD to avoid an attack by a nuclear missile in Ukraine

          - this is called a preventive attack, by the way, Goebbels' propaganda actively used such a thesis to attack the USSR and the stupid German people fell for it and supported it. Well, we are smarter and know everything for sure ...

      I wondered why the Japanese were so worried about the Kuriles? I think the driven old decrepit eagle of the United States in impotent rage decided to take revenge on these Russians at all costs, and to the Chinese, because Ukraine could not cope, and Taiwan, the wise Xi somehow sorts it out, set Japan and force it to tax chestnuts from the fire for Uncle Sam, that's the task Japanese media, it is not clear who they will start with ... Russian resources are support for the PRC. the basis of its stability, ... so I think the Americans will be afraid against the PRC .... the trick is that Moscow and Beijing are the most secure capitals in the world, because they are far from the water, and Japan is just all in sight cramped and crowded, so the fate of Japan is even it will be more tragic than the so-called Ukraine, because Japan's attack on the Russian Federation immediately falls under the threat of the state of the Russian Federation and nuclear weapons will be used immediately

    Everyone, including Japan, is looking at the results of the NWO in Ukraine. The Pacific Fleet is smaller, weaker than the Japanese fleet, this gives the Japanese hope to win. If the Russian Federation loses the war in Ukraine, then the worst-case scenario for the Russian Federation cannot be predicted. The weak are beaten by everyone, torn to pieces, friends become enemies.

    Japan's GDP is larger than Russia's
    The population is 120 million against 150 of the Russian Federation
    It remains to acquire nuclear weapons

      the territory of Russia is large and the population is scattered over it, the territory of Japan is small, the population is crowded and nuclear strikes on it will be more effective

      How many nuclear strikes does it take to wash away the Japanese imperialists in a tsunami wave? two for each island, one on the left and one on the right, or is one enough?

    If the fighting in Ukraine had been conducted more actively and more decisively, the Japanese would not have been buzzing so actively, and the Russian Navy should be built to deal with grain deals. Putin was bored with the occupation of the NWO and he retired.

    Don't be offended, it's true. And you can't be offended by the truth, even if it's bitter

    Everything is natural. The essence of the problem: the current Russian Federation does not strive for leadership.
    Passivity in domestic policy leads to problems in foreign policy.
    Hence the corresponding assessments abroad.
    In their derogatory statements about the Russian Federation, Japanese bloggers are not far from the truth!

    In 1941 and 1945, Japan also considered itself a great military power, but they could not maintain this image of theirs. Parts of the Soviet army, having carried out a limited military operation, quickly put the Japanese in their place, freeing the pseudo-state of Manchukuo and a number of islands that were previously considered impregnable. In our time, the armed forces of "self-defense" of Japan, who do not have combat experience, again imagine themselves as great samurai? One or two Poseidon can quickly cool all wet dreams, washing half the cities into the ocean. Imperial ambitions once again endanger the land of the rising sun as we know it.

    It was mind-boggling to attack a nuclear power. Compare the Japanese navy and our Pacific. Capturing the islands of Japan was held back by the fact that Russia used nuclear weapons. As Ukraine has shown, Russia will not use it even to preserve the integrity of its territories. So in order to clean up these islands, Japan has no obstacles.

    Now all countries are obsessed with the pathos of victory in the coming war. And everyone wants to use nuclear weapons. After this happens, there will be no trace of pathos left. The question will arise how to survive. And knowing where healthy food and water is, a war of our own against our own will begin. Do we want this?
