Russia expands military construction plans on Kuril islands | Source: Reuters

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin visits a fish processing complex on the southern Kuril island of Iturup, Russia July 26, 2021.

Russia plans to build 51 more pieces of military infrastructure on the Kuril islands. Part of the chain is claimed by Japan and the territorial dispute over some of the islands dates back to the time when the then-Soviet Union seized them at the end of World War Two, and has kept the two countries from signing a formal peace treaty.
