As part of the performance at the Japanese Think tank in Tokyo, prime minister of Japan Fumio Kishida paid attention of his listeners that there is still a war in Ukraine. Ukrainians suffer from Russian aggression, shelling, and destroyed infrastructure and need international support. Therefore, the Japanese government decided to provide Ukraine with additional assistance of $5.5.
Fumio Kishida added that the 24th will be the year of the war against Ukraine. And on this day, February 24, 2023, Volodymyr Zelenskyy will join the G7 meeting.
PM said that the war that Russia began against Ukraine could aggravate the situation in the East, where China does not hide its appetites regarding Taiwan - "strong concern that Ukraine may be tomorrow's East Asia."
"That’s why I decided to resolutely respond to (Russia) with sanctions," Fumio Kishida.
Today, Japan allocated to Ukraine ¥70 billion ($520 million) and adopted about 2.000 refugees from Ukraine.
