PRESENTATION OUTLINE Introduction Meetings in Protest Some facts from  the history 4.    Argumentation -Russianarguments -Japanese arguments 5.    Possible solution
Introduction    The impetus for this short essay was the bill adopted by the Japanese Parliament on July 3, 2009. It declared that the Kuril Islands “have always been Japanese territory.”     This decision raised strong objections on the Russian side.
Meetings in Protest    About 750 residents of the Far Eastern city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk protested against Japan’s claim to four disputed Pacific islands. “The islands were, are and will be ours,” said Yuri Andreyev, acting chairman of the city’s council of WWII veterans.    We witness tension in relations between the two countries. The aim of this essay is to suggest a solution to the problem of the Kuril Islands that, I hope, will be acceptable to both the Russians and the Japanese.
