TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan will freeze the assets of an additional 25 Russian individuals and prohibit exports to 81 Russian organisations, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Japan will proceed with steps to strip Russia of most favoured nation trade status and to prevent it from evading financial sanctions using digital assets.
