RUSSIA JAPAN FISHERMAN SHOT

The main building of Russia's Foreign Ministry dominates the skyline in downtown Moscow, Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2006, with a Soviet Union state emblem on the facade. A Russian patrol boat opened fire on a Japanese vessel in disputed waters Wednesday, killing a fisherman and triggering a harsh protest from Tokyo. Russia's Foreign Ministry issued a statement Wednesday saying it regretted the death, but said "the responsibility totally rests with the direct culprits and ... with Japanese authorities that close their eyes to fishermen's poaching in Russian territorial waters."
