Japan adopts new sanctions against Russia and criticizes its agreement to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus

Japan’s additional sanctions and export restrictions on Russia reflect the G7’s goal of preventing sanctions-busting by third countries and include a ban on the export of materials that would help strengthen the industrial base of the Russia, Matsuno said.

Japan on Friday approved additional sanctions against Russia for its war on Ukraine, including freezing the assets of dozens of individuals and groups and banning exports to organizations linked to the Russian military.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno told reporters that the Cabinet’s approval shows that Japan is in line with the rest of the Group of Seven countries which agreed at their summit in Hiroshima last week to maintain and strengthen sanctions against Russia.

He said Japan was determined to work with other G7 countries and the wider international community “to improve the situation” in Ukraine.
