Three vessels of the Japanese Self-Defence Forces are on the way to help a Russian military diving vessel AS-28
Three vessels of the Japanese Self-Defence Forces are on the way to help a Russian military diving vessel AS-28 that hitched on a fishnet not far from Kamchatka. The Japanese vessel Chiyoda that is designed for rendering aid to submarines in distress set out from the port Yokosuka near Tokyo on Friday, a source in the Japanese Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass. Two minesweepers Uwajima and Yugeshima set out from Hakodate on the Japanese northern island of Hokkaido. There is information that at least another Japanese military vessel may take part in the rescue operation of the diving vessel. However, the headquarters of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Force could not elaborate on it yet. The Japanese diplomatic source noted the vessels were dispatched “out of considerations of humanity” in reply to a request of the Russian Pacific Fleet command on Friday morning. According to him, the vessels had set out in the sea, before the Japanese government has taken an official decision to render aid to the Russian diving vessel.
