Former Imperial Japanese Army soldier alive and well… in the Ukraine

Crazy stuff, hot off the Yomiuri presses: 83-year-old Ishinosuke Ueno, who was in Sakhalin at the time of Japan’s surrender in 1945, just turned up living (with a family) in the Ukraine, despite being presumed dead by the Japanese government. He plans to visit his relatives in Iwate Prefecture in a couple of days.
