The Government of Japan set out disappointment in connection with new visa restrictions that Russia had imposed on the entry of Japanese citizens into the Russian Federation. Russia imposed retaliatory sanctions on Japan in response to Tokyo's visa sanctions.

In early August, the government of Japan approved a third round of sanctions against Russia in connection with the Ukrainian crisis. Disciplined Japan, voluntarily and with an open heart, joined all packages of EU sanction against Russia and implemented them in full.

After the introduction of the third package of sanctions, Russia presented the list of Japanese citizens, who were barred from entering the Russian Federation. Surprisingly, Japanese officials held a press conference in Tokyo, at which the Secretary of the Japanese Cabinet of Ministers Yoshihide Suga said: "This is a regretful step as it will have a negative impact on the state of affairs in Russian-Japanese relations."
