Russia Launches Missiles During Warship Drills Inside Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone

Russia's military has announced details and released video of major war drills in the Sea of Japan by its Pacific Fleet, which included at least a dozen warships. Japanese media has said the drills took place in part inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

The live fire drills are being described as a military "show of strength" in the vicinity of the disputed Kuril Islands. Moscow has exercised control over the Kuril archipelago going back to Soviet rule at the end of World War II - which Tokyo has never recognized. Japan refers to the islands as the Northern Territories and claims historic ownership.
