JCP to Russian ambassador: Pull out of Ukraine now

March 29, 2022

Japanese Communist Party member of the House of Councilors Inoue Satoshi received a visit from Russian Ambassador to Japan Mikhail Galuzin on March 28 and held talks with him in the Diet building.

Inoue handed the ambassador a statement titled, "The JCP strongly condemns Russia's aggression against Ukraine - Russia must immediately cease military operations", which JCP Chair Shii Kazuo published on February 24.

Inoue said, "As specified in the JCP Program, we champion the international order for peace as defined by the UN Charter and oppose any hegemonic attempts to violate or destroy it."

The ambassador explained the stance taken by the Russian government which places blame on the Ukrainian government as well as on the EU, NATO, and the United States. He said that it is important for Ukraine to surrender and meet the demands of the Russian side for Ukraine's demilitarization and neutralization.

Inoue in response said, "We are aware of various controversies. However, the UN Charter does not give any State Party the right to attack any country just because there is a 'threat'. The attempt to bayonet Ukraine into surrendering and overturn the existing government is the very act of aggression." Touching upon resolutions hastily adopted in the UNGA, Inoue demanded that Russia put a stop to its invasion and withdraw its troops from Ukraine without delay.

The ambassador said that he will convey the JCP position to the Russia government.
