The Russian Foreign Ministry requested Tuesday that Japan investigate a recent incident in which right-wing activists allegedly insulted a Russian flag outside the country’s embassy in Tokyo.
…..The alleged incident took place on Monday, known in Japan as Northern Territories Day, with the Japanese activists dragging the Russian state flag on the ground, the Itar-Tass news agency said. The flag was torn, stained and then covered with black cross symbols all over, the report said.
Seriously, just leave all flags alone. They’re way too precious – like huge, flat diamonds waving all sparkly. After the world ends, small flags on sticks will be used as currency.
