Russian ships fired rockets off the coast of Japan.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's provocative statement about the absence of Tokyo's intentions to negotiate a peace treaty between Tokyo and Moscow, as well as the inclusion of the South Kuriles under Japanese sovereignty, Russian warships conducted large-scale military exercises near the coast of Japan, demonstrating Tokyo that the Russian the territory is under reliable protection and an attempt at military pressure on Russia could result in very serious problems.

“The Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy recently sent a 'welcome message' to the new Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, during a training exercise in the Sea of ​​Japan. The flagship missile cruiser of the Pacific Fleet "Varyag" and a large anti-submarine ship, during exercises in the Sea of ​​Japan, fired at multipurpose missiles fired from other warships, and they were destroyed. During the exercise, 10 missile launches were made. Fumio Kishida has previously argued that Japan's sovereignty extends to the region. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov immediately denied this statement, saying that Moscow does not agree with Tokyo's position on this issue, since these islands are the territory of Russia ", - reports the publication "NetEase".

It should be noted that due to Tokyo's provocations, there is a risk of a rather serious deterioration in relations between Russia and Japan, but the Russian side will not allow any military threats against it.
