Russia-Ukraine conflict and relations with Japan: The Russian Perspective

Mikhail Yurievich Galuzin, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to Japan

15:00-16:00 Friday, November 11, 2022
(The speech and Q & A will be in English.)


It has been nine months since Russia launched its invasion in Ukraine and the conflict appears little nearer to resolution now than in February when the incursion took place. The conflict has meanwhile taken a heavy toll in terms of human lives, both military and civilian. Massive damage has been caused to infrastructure and property while economic and other sanctions imposed on Russia by Western nations have provoked Russian responses that have had a devastating impact worldwide on inflation- energy and food prices in particular. His Excellency the Russian ambassador to Japan Mihail Yurievich Galuzin, who is returning to Russia after completing his mandate in Japan, has kindly agreed to speak at the FCCJ to address the broad aspects of Russian foreign policy and Russo-Japan relations.
