“This step is quite regretful,” Suga said, adding that “This will have a negative impact on Russian-Japanese relations.”
Last Friday, Japanese Ambassador in Moscow Chikahito Harada received a list of citizens from that country who are banned from coming to Russia. The list of these individuals was not made public.
In early August, Japanese government has approved the third portion of sanctions on Russia over the situation in Ukraine. The country has almost immediately published a list of 40 individuals and two companies, which, in Tokyo’s view, “are involved in destabilisation of the situation in Ukraine.” According to these sanctions, if accounts of those Russian citizens on the sanction list are found at Japanese banks they will be frozen.
In March, Japan has introduced the first package of sanctions against Russia related with the Moscow position on Crimea. Then sanctions envisaged suspension of consultations on easier visa rules and the start of talks to possibly conclude three treaties on investment co-operation, co-operation in space exploration and prevention of dangerous military activity. On July 24, in addition to this Tokyo stated the country suspended issue of entry visas for 23 officials of Russian state agencies and other people. Their list was also not made public.
