MOSCOW: Moscow said on Monday that it handed Japanese diplomats a note of protest after a Japanese national was allegedly caught trying to obtain “classified information” in Russia’s Far East.

On December 25, Russian law enforcement officials detained a Japanese national who was trying to obtain “classified information about Russia’s military potential in the Far East,” a foreign ministry representative told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The Japanese who was not identified and was in Russia on a media visa was warned about “the inadmissibility of his actions” and ordered to leave the country, the foreign ministry said.

He left Russia the next day, the ministry added. The Russian foreign ministry also summoned a Japanese diplomat and handed him a note of protest over the incident, Moscow said.
