駐日大使の顔と態度   Faces and Attitudes of Ambassadors to Japan

ロシアのウクライナへの武力侵攻に伴って現在の駐日ロシア大使の顔をテレビで見る機会が増えました。
実に横柄な振る舞いが目立ちます。
日本の外務大臣との面談でもふんぞり返って受け答えをしています。
内容は言わずもがなです。
私はこれまでに5か国の駐日大使の方々にお目にかかり話をしたことがありますが、ロシア大使ほどふんぞり返って話をする大使には会ったことはありません。
ビジネスマンにも同様な接客態度をとる人が時々いますが、私はすぐに次回の話し合いは自分から中止することにしています。
With Russia's armed invasion of Ukraine, we have had more opportunities to see the face of the current Russian Ambassador to Japan on TV.
His arrogant behavior is indeed conspicuous.
He was talking even with Japan's Minister of Foreign Affairs with a lot of arrogance.
The content of his talk goes without saying.
I have met and talked with the ambassadors to Japan from five different countries, but I have never met an ambassador who talked with as much arrogance as the Russian ambassador.
I have met some businessmen who sometimes had the same attitude, but I myself usually immediately cancel the next talk with them.
