Ukraine recognizes Kuril Islands as part of Japan

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed on Friday a decree recognizing the Kuril Islands as part of Japan. The islands, also known as the Northern Territories, have been claimed by both Japan and Russia in a dispute dating back to the aftermath of World War II.

"Ukraine confirmed its respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Japan, including its Northern territories, which are still under Russian occupation," Zelensky stated. "Russia has no right to these territories. Everyone in the world knows this well. And we must finally act."
