On June 7, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the termination of the 1998 agreement with Japan in the field of fishing for marine living resources until Tokyo fulfills all its financial obligations.

However, as stated in the Russian Foreign Ministry, Tokyo “took the line for freezing”; payments under the agreement and “delay” with the signing of a document on assistance to the Sakhalin Region.
