In the Parliament of Japan, Ukraine has the support of both pro-government and opposition parties, said the Ambassador of Ukraine.
Deputies of the Japanese Parliament handed over $1.2 million in assistance to Ukraine, collected from deductions from their own salaries.
This was announced on his Facebook page by the Ambassador of Ukraine to Japan Serhiy Korsunsky. “Today we have a small pleasure (besides the big one – the visit of Prime Minister Kishida to Kiev). A group of deputies of the upper house of the Japanese parliament from the opposition Renaissance Party created a fund of $ 1.2 million at the expense of deductions from their salaries, for which they purchased 20 Toyota trucks Helix” and two containers of useful products for our Armed Forces,” said Korsunsky.
According to the ambassador, all this will soon arrive in Ukraine for Ukrainian defenders. “It is important that in the Japanese parliament we have the support of both pro-government and opposition parties. With the exception of just one or two characters, all the rest are for us,” Korsunsky added.
Aid to Ukraine from Japan
As you know, at the beginning of a full-scale war, Japan donated body armor, helmets, tents, winter clothes and other assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
On March 21, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida arrived in Kyiv and announced assistance to the energy sector and the transfer of non-lethal weapons.
The Prime Minister added that his country is helping Ukraine to clear mines, as well as supporting Ukrainian television and radio broadcasting, education and public administration and the protection of cultural heritage.
According to him, in 2022, Japan provided Ukraine with humanitarian and financial assistance totaling about $1.6 billion. In addition, it was decided to allocate about $5.5 billion more.
