Russian submarines launch missiles from Japanese waters during tensions with Ukraine – News

Amid tensions between Moscow and Tokyo over Ukraine, the Defense Ministry announced on Thursday that Russian submarines had fired missiles during a maneuver in the Sea of ​​Japan.

“Pacific Navy submarines fired caliper cruise missiles at imaginary enemy ships,” the Russian ministry said in a statement.

More than 15 ships, including two submarines “Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky” and “Volkov”, took part in the maneuvers, “successfully delivering their missiles by launching ship missiles from a submarine in the Sea of ​​Japan”, the same sources added.

The ministry released a video showing the missiles being launched from the water and rising into the sky.

These maneuvers create a tense situation between Russia and Japan, which has announced a embargo on Russian coal in response to Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine.

Japan, an ally of the United States, has complicated relations with Russia, and after World War II it did not sign a peace agreement due to the conflict of the four small islands in the Kurles archipelago.

These islands were occupied by the Soviet army in the last days of the war and never returned to Japan, which calls them the “Northern Territories” and considers them its own.
