Japan to Ban Exports of High-Tech Goods to Russia

Japan said Friday that it will ban exports of cutting-edge goods to Russia as additional sanctions against Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.
According to the Economic and Trade Ministry, the ban on exports of 14 high-tech goods, including oil refining equipment, quantum computers, 3D printers, and electron microscopes, to Russia will take effect starting May 20.
The ministry stated that the move is in tandem with the international community’s efforts to ensure global peace and the Group of Seven (G7) nations’ commitment to ban shipments of cutting-edge items to Russia.
This follows Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi’s remarks on Friday that Russia should be “held accountable over its atrocities” in Ukraine and called Moscow’s actions “totally unacceptable.”
