Book chapter

Миссия Н.Н. Муравьева в Эдо 1859 г.

С. 413-422.

In 1859 Governor General of East Siberia, count Muravyov-Amurskiy (1809 - 1881) arrived  in Edo (now Tokyo) as a head of squadron of warships to negotiate with the representatives of military government (bakufu). He sought acceptance by Japanese authority that Sakhalin is Russian territory to draw a border along La Perouse strait. Muravyov-Amurskiy tried to achieve his aim while not resorting to the threat of military force. Russian arguments were not accepted by Japanese diplomats. It was not until 1875 some 16 years later when by Saint-Petersburg treaty Sakhalin fully became part of Russian Empire. Famous japanese historian Akidzuki Tosiaki, while not fully showing Muravyov-Amurskiy statements, is trying to show russian policy in Far East in a misrepresented manner.
