MOSCOW, August 22. /TASS/. Japan’s reaction to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's visit to the Kuril Islands indicates that Tokyo continues challenging the outcomes of World War Two, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
"Japan’s reaction to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's visit to the Iturup Island once again indicates that Tokyo continues challenging the generally recognised outcomes of World War Two on the eve of the 70th anniversary of its end," the ministry said in a statement. "Such public rhetoric casts doubt on the Japanese government’s assurances of respect for the historical truth and memory of the war that has brought death and suffering to tens of millions of citizens in East Asia," it added.
