Russia is forced to cede parts of Siberia to Japan
Empire of Japan
Casualties and Losses
The Second Russo-Japanese War was fought between the Russian Empire and the Japanese Empire.
After Russia had been forced to sign the Treaties of Brest-Litovsk and Denver, the tsar of Russia, Alexi II was looking forward to cover up Russia's previous defeats at the hands of the Allied Powers during World War 1 and Japan during the First Russo-Japanese War (1904-05) as Alexi looked forward to reclaim Port Arthur and seize control of all of Korea in one last attempt to prove Russia was strong indeed. Shortly after the signing of the Treaties of Denver and Brest-Litovsk, Alexi II ordered a military buildup on the border with Korea along with the mobilization of the entire Russian Fleet moving the majority of it to the East Chinese Sea in order to surprise Japan. With Japan having being kicked out of America, Alexi took the opportunity as Russia declared war on Japan briefly joining the Allies during the final days of World War 1.
