Корейцы сквозь призму советско-японских отношений (1920-1930)

International Journal of Korean History. 2012. Vol. 17. No. 2. P. 1-28.

After clearing of the Far East of interventionists in 1922 – 1923 the main task of the young Soviet state was the establishment of diplomatic relations between Moscow and Tokyo. Representatives of the USSR and Japan had been signed on January, 20th, 1925 "the Convention on main principles of mutual relations between the USSR and Japan". The memorandum of general Tanaka Giiti (on July, 25th, 1927) about bases of a policy in Manchuria and Mongolia predetermined aggressive plans of Japan not only these territories, but also Russia. Koreans in territory of the Soviet Far East have appeared "hostages" of two countries USSR and Japan. Changes in foreign policy between these countries directly were reflected in destiny of the Soviet Koreans. Since 1927 in Korea from the Japanese government repressions and persecutions in relation to Koreans have amplified. In USSR Koreans began to accuse of "the Japanese espionage". Repressions have amplified in 1931 -1932 and in 1937 – 1938.
