“Tokyo said the passage did not violate Japanese waters nor breach international violations.”
So Japan is a pretty normal country then.
No need to worry, the Chinese & the Russian are just trying to catch some special Pokemons.
Its a freedom of navigation according to the US
Japan has nothing to worry about. Russians and Chinese just following US example of freedom of navigation.
Doesn't it was their (US and NATO) the one who promoted freedom of navigation whether its in russian sea or china sea under the pretext "international water". So it should be okay for the other, japan also said its international water....
Everybody gangsta till they see a giant Gundam hovering their shores.
Don't worry too much, it's just a practics of freedom of navigation.
Freedom of navigation. Russia and China should sail around Japan to enjoy their Freedom Of Navigation. What goes around comes around.
It showed you that everyone can carry out military exercise in this world. Not just the western allies.
It’s nothing but “freedom of navigation”.
Looks like freedom of navigation to Guam is coming up.
Freedom of Navigation.
This is "freedom of navigation".Nothing is wrong here.
This is a counter to the joint drill conducted by the US, UK, Australia, Japan just a week ago. And the action of US ships went though Taiwan strait again afterward.

Now everyone know Tsugaru strait is for everyone... Support freedom of navigation... Well done
I love Japan so much for it’s culture and people, it’s government needs to stop playing lapdog of US and speak for themselves
I really salute those nations that have none US military bases in their own land. That is what I called an independent country.
Next Freedom Navigation is Guam and Hawaii ..
Always found it weird how Japan allowed a very small strait that runs between two of their major islands to be international waters.
Unless the Chinese ships were towing the Russian ships there is no way they made the transit through the Japanese Strait.
The Tsugaru Strait is an international waterway, not a Japanese sovereign territory.
Great job China and Russia for learning and respecting the freedom of navigation.
British channel next. Freedom of navigation..yay !!
Now you wht it feels like when your enemies is hanging around your neighbourhood.
The target of this show of muscle and freedom of navigation was toward the US, not Japan.
That is international strait, not "Japan" strait.
As human being, China and Russia are holding responsibilities to assure the navigation freedom in this strait
USA can't be complaining now? After all it's called Freedom of Navigation.
Answer of Quad, aukus, etc, etc... Waiting for Korean, Iran, Pakistan, Vietnam, Cuba to join the pack
Russia and China coming together as firm friends and allies.
This is what the non western world hoped would happen to prevent anymore " regime change " carnage around the world.
Western militaries are not likely to attack Russia or China the stronger this alliance gets, or even as it is now.
Well guys, see you all in the navy if we get drafted
Aleutian islands, here we come!
US west coast the next lol
All ships will operate following freedom of navigation of course!
A century ago Japan would kick both of these countries in no time. But, now they have to make a press conference first. How ironic.
Don't worry, the chinese and russians are just stopping by to get some fresh Hokkaido milk to drink while watching anime.
US warships, submarines and aircraft carriers were also there navigating. So what's the big deal if from China and Russia??
Since it's call the tsugaru straits, China should sail there frequently to ensure freedom of navigation.
Excellent. Bravo Sino Russo cooperation
Best news of October. It should happen more often.
Now, the Japanese war criminals are nervous who sought protection from the US conqueror who bombed Japan with 2 atom bombs. What an irony or a paradox.
They are just confirming that Japan still doesn't have GZilla created there
No need to worry. They're just out fishing.
Japan is tasting reciprocal action for its war aggression in China Sea.
This is putting Japan in a spot (pun intended) and US in its place.
Together they consisted of the firepower of one forest squirrel.

Would of been cooler if they had a submarine or two, running on the surface with the boats. then they all played hide and seek once through the strait.
What a wonderful world, Beautiful
beautiful sight to behold! Freedom of navigation, freedom of pointing gun into your face, freedom of waving an axe over your head!
Having US backing doesn't mean you are invincible. When you are just a bunch of islands, it would be better to keep a low profile otherwise you will find yourself surrounded.
this is a very minor detail but if u look at the map its like the warship passage "beheaded" japan because of the straits location
Great way to motivate Japan to spend more on defences, and solidify its alliance with the US.
Kremlin spokesperson: China's test of hypersonic missile does not worry Russia we have an alliance with China.
How does it feel to be on the receiving end?
It's ok for US/NATO fleet to sail on International waters but not the Chinese and Russians?
Just leading by America 's example.
MMA Dany dit la bête !
Thanks Russia and China ! Stay strong !
Russians and Chinese just following US example of freedom of navigation. They should do this more
Freedom of navigation in Japan territories, how could this be? They should ask permission first. If someone enters your home, would it be “freedom” as well??
Let the Maritime Self-Defense Force ship and HMS Queen Elizabeth travel together in the South China Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk.
