Russian FSB Arrests Japanese Diplomat on Espionage Charges

Russian FSB Arrests Japanese Diplomat on Espionage Charges


Update (1402 EST): Russian state owned media has released this footage purporting to show the Consul General Tatsunori admitting to pursuing restricted information. The Russian Foreign Ministry has lodged a “strong protest” with the Japanese government and reportedly still has Tatsunori in custody.

The FSB has arrested Motoka Tatsunori, of the Japanese General Consulate in Vladivostok, Russia.

The diplomat was accused of soliciting secret information with regards to Russian trading with “an East Asian partner” to get around Western trade sanctions. He also solicited information on the impacts of Western sanctions on Primorsky Krai.

Tatsunori has been declared persona non grata of the Russian Federation, but it is not clear if he has been turned over to Japanese officials for deportation.

This is developing.
