TOKYO -- "Support for Ukraine is an investment in Japan's security," Ukrainian Ambassador to Japan Sergiy Korsunsky told Nikkei, arguing that a Russian victory in its war would heighten the security risks faced by Tokyo.

Korsunsky expressed gratitude for Japan's "unprecedented nonmilitary support," including medical supplies and sanctions against Moscow. He hopes to see Tokyo play a leading role in Ukraine's postwar rebuilding, leveraging its prior experience in places like Afghanistan and Cambodia.
