On the 6th, the Russian side said that Japan's "extremely unfriendly" position towards Russia would not help the two sides in energy dialogue.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also recently ordered the adjustment of the energy cooperation development project "Sakhalin 2" between Russia and Japan.

Since the escalation of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, Japan has followed in the footsteps of the United States and has launched a series of sanctions against Russia.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida also said in a recent speech that he would set a limit on the transaction price of Russian oil, set the upper limit to about half of the current price, and if the price is higher than that, no purchase or purchase is allowed.

This really annoys Russia.

After Russia sacrificed this big move, Japan was faced with a dilemma. How to restrain and continue to cooperate with Russia to explain to the West, insisting on sanctions will pay for the breathlessness.

How will Japan choose?
