Russia’s relations with Japan are in fact curtailed. This statement was made by the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov.

Dmitry Peskov clarified that Japan takes a hostile position towards Russia. However, even in Japan there are attempts to soberly assess what is happening, reports RIA Novosti.

Relations between Russia and Japan escalated back in the spring, after Russia stopped the claims of the Japanese side to the South Kuriles. At the same time, Japan continues to count the islands of Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup and Habomai “illegally occupied” by Russia.

Later, Japan, among other countries, joined the anti-Russian sanctions. Luxury items, including luxury cars and motorcycles, personal computers, expensive alcohol and cosmetics, and high-tech goods, cannot be imported into Russia from Japan. From June 17 the export of trucks to the Russian Federation is prohibited, dump trucks and bulldozers. In addition, Japan is going to gradually reduce coal imports and refuse to import Russian oil.
