Abstract : This study traces the evolution of Russo-Japanese transnational relations, which have been always full of controversies and misunderstandings. The main issue between Russia and Japan is the territorial problem. Unresolved territorial dispute over Northern Territories/South Kurile Islands is the largest obstacle between two countries to concluding peace treaty and fully normalize bilateral relations. The purpose of this study is to analyze Russo-Japanese relations, particularly looking at political, military and economic dimensions throughout the history of countries' relations. Resolving the dispute would allow Russia and Japan not only enhance the quality of the bilateral cooperation but to increase security and ensure balance of power in the region, specially with the coming on the scene new powers, such as China.
