SEVASTOPOL, March 12. /TASS/. Former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama does not rule out he can accept a proposal of the Russian presidential envoy to the Crimean Federal District, Yuri Belaventsev, and move to the Black Sea peninsula, he said in Crimea’s capital Sevastopol on Thursday.
Hatoyama has said that it could be possible if an attempt to deprive him of passport is made in Japan.
"If such a danger emerges, I cannot rule out that I will accept Mr Belaventsev’s proposal," he said. "I am grateful for it."
On Wednesday a leader of the ruling Japanese Liberal Democratic Party, Takashi Fukaya, spoke out for depriving Hatoyama of his passport. The former prime minister alleged that Fukaya’s sharp statements stemmed from the competition with his brother at one of the constituencies in recent elections.
Later in the day, Belaventsev at a meeting with the Japanese delegation said, "If your democrats make your life hard for you, we will welcome you here at once. Stay with us, we are always glad to meet friends."
