At the end of last week, the image of Emperor Hirohito appeared in a video about fascism on Twitter posted by the Ukrainian government. This action has stirred up public opinion in Japan, where the people have a lot of respect for the emperor, according to Bloomberg News.
On April 24, Masahisa Sato, head of the Foreign Policy Department of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, also tweeted his objection on this issue.
“The Japanese Foreign Ministry will have to reflect on this issue, and ask the Ukrainian side to apologize and delete the video,” Masahisa wrote on Twitter.
Faced with that situation, the Ukrainian government immediately posted a tweet with a video that deleted the image of Emperor Hirohito. In it, the Ukrainian side said: “Ukraine sincerely apologizes to the Japanese people for this mistake. We have also fixed the aforementioned incident with another video.”

Many Japanese people are supporting Ukraine in its war with Russia. USAA poll from April 22-24 of the newspaper Nikkei (Japan) said that up to 44% of Japanese people support sanctions against Russia and more than 62% of Japanese people agree with the Japanese government’s handling of the Russia-Ukraine war, where the Japanese government is currently in conflict. pro-Ukrainian bias.
According to News Agency Bloombergif Ukraine does not have a timely response in deleting the above video, it is likely that some conservatives in Japan will speak up and turn their backs on the administration of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
If you compare Emperor Hirohito – the king who made many contributions to Japan during the Renaissance – to Adolf Hitler, it was an insult to many Japanese.
