SEVASTOPOL, March 12. /TASS/. Former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama is set to break an information blockade around Crimea upon his return to the native country and get the truth about the situation in the Russian Black Sea peninsula across to his compatriots, Hatoyama said on Thursday while visiting Crimea’s capital Sevastopol.
"Changing the society’s point of view after brainwashing is going to be difficult," Hatoyama said. "But I believe that common sense and justice will take the upper hand."
Speaking in favour of lifting the anti-Russian sanctions, the former Japanese prime minister said his country could supply the peninsula with technology that would help it settle the problems with electricity and water supplies.
"Japan has got interesting technologies of supplying potable and sewage water, of desalination of sea water alongside electricity transmission," he said. "However, for providing such technology, we need a governmental support."
Earlier, Hatoyama said that Japanese companies might take part in construction of the Kerch bridge across the Kerch Strait and in restoration of Crimea’s industrial potential.
On Thursday Hatoyama is rounding up his three-day visit to Crimea where he arrived despite official Tokyo’s warnings to check it out for himself that Crimea’s residents had been seeking reunification with Russia.
