Russia is Making a Move in Asia

The Russian government declared that a Bastion coastal defense missile system had been put in place on Paramushir, which belongs to the Kuril Islands, which Japan lays claim to a portion of.

Shoigu, Russia’s Defense Minister, declared that the nation was fortifying its extensive eastern territories to counter what he described as the United States attempts to “restrain” Russia and China.

Russia says this is their response against the US “attempt” to dominate the Asia-Pacific region.
