Russian planes approached the mainland from North and flew over the Sea of Japan. The Defense Ministry of Japan published the map of Russian bombers flight route and their photos on their official website. Two of them then headed South to the island of Okinawa, made a circle around the country and returned to Russia the same evening.
Japan’s Defense Ministry noted that their airspace was not intruded.
Earlier it was reported about Russia-Japan territorial dispute on Kuril Islands. After negotiations in Japan, the world has received a clear message that Putin is ready to cede territories.
