Russia Sends Aid To Japan Mending Tense Relations


Russian President Dmitry Medvedev appears to be working overtime to mend ties with Japan, sending three planes with humanitarian aid and considering Japan’s urgent request for energy supplies. With four of the six nuclear energy plants down following the massive earthquake and tsunami on the weekend, a significant shortfall of energy is being experienced throughout the country. Apparently Medvedev reinforced his commitment to developing strong economic and trade ties with Japan, and said that Russia would do what they could to help. Relations between the two countries have been troubled recently following Medvedev’s visit to disputed South Keril Islands that Moscow seized from Japan at the end of World War II.
