More than 7 in 10 Japanese support economic sanctions against Russia over its war in Ukraine, even if the sanctions' impact extends to the Japanese economy and their lives, a Kyodo News survey showed Sunday.

In the two-day telephone survey through Sunday on 1,067 eligible voters, 58.7% of respondents supported Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's Cabinet, compared with 60.1% in March.

As Japan ramps up sanctions against Russia over its invasion along with other Group of Seven nations, 68.7% said rising prices of food and other products have hit their daily lives "terribly" or "to some degree." In contrast, 31.2% said they have not.
