In revenge, Russia on Wednesday imposed sanctions on 63 senior Japanese officials, including Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

In a statement on its website, the Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the policies taken by the Kishida Cabinet towards Russia.

“The Fumio Kishida Administration has launched an unprecedented anti-Russian campaign, allowing unacceptable rhetoric against the Russian Federation, including slander and direct threats.

“This is echoed by public figures, experts and representatives of the Japanese media, who are fully involved in the West’s attitude towards our country. In line with this course, Tokyo is taking practical steps aimed at destroying good neighborly relations, damaging the Russian economy and the international prestige of our country,” the statement said.

Taking into account the hostile policies and personal sanctions against Russian citizens, including high-ranking officials, it was decided to bar indefinitely 63 Japanese nationals, including the serving prime minister, from entering Russia, the ministry said.
