Video report: The Situation in Ukraine and Japan (Dr. Michito TSURUOKA, Associate Professor, Keio University)

post date : 2022.05.17

It is nearly three month since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. Western nations and Japan have been making economic sanctions on Russia increasingly harsh, and food and energy costs are continuing to increase as the stability of the supply remains unclear.

There is also a growing debate over a major nuclear power invading a non-nuclear state and indicating the possibility of using nuclear weapons. What effects will the situation in Ukraine have on Japanese relations with Russia, and on the Japanese politics, economy, society, and security?

The FPCJ invited Keio University associate professor Dr. Michito Tsuruoka, an expert in European politics whose research topics include international security and nuclear policy, to discuss the situation.

The briefing had a total of 24 participants including journalists from Brazil, China, France, Germany and US.
