Voices of displeasure from Japan are calling for support from U.S. support, citing the attack on Pearl Harbor as an example in a speech to U.S. lawmakers during a Russian military invasion by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
President Zelensky, in his video address to US Senators and House of Representatives on the 16th, when thinking of Ukraine, the US should remember the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii during World War II, and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. We complained that we were going through the same thing every day.
The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II was compared to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
After the contents of the remarks were reported, on the 17th, an unpleasant reaction continued on the Japanese Internet.
Related articles included comments such as that the attack on Pearl Harbor did not target civilians, and that they doubted the ears of the Japanese National Assembly.
The Ukrainian government has requested that President Zelensky be allowed to speak at the Japanese National Assembly.
Despite President Zelenskys Pearl Harbor speech, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida attended the Budget Committee of the House of Representatives on the same day and said that the governments position is that the National Assembly should respond positively.
The Japanese National Assembly is also considering accepting the request for a speech, and if it does come true, it could be next week, Kyodo News reported.
President Zelensky previously delivered a video address to the Congress of the United States, Britain, Canada, and Germany, appealing for the will and support of the deadly war.
