Street fighting begins in Kyiv; people urged to seek shelter.
Russian troops stormed toward Ukraine’s capital Saturday, and street fighting broke out as city officials urged residents to take shelter. The country's president refused an American offer to evacuate, insisting that he would stay. “The fight is here,” he said.
As dawn broke in Kyiv, it was not immediately clear how far the soldiers had advanced. Skirmishes reported on the edge of the city suggested that small Russian units were probing Ukrainian defenses to clear a path for the main forces.

Japan plans to transport citizens in Ukraine to Poland for charter flight evacuation.
In response to Russia's military invasion of Ukraine, the Japanese government intends to transport the approximately 120 Japanese nationals still in the country as of Feb. 23 by land to neighboring Poland, from where they will be evacuated on a charter flight.
Japan's government is considering temporarily keeping its nationals in protective custody at embassy-related facilities in Kyiv if Russia's invasion progresses.

China is Russia’s best hope to blunt sanctions, but wary.
China is the only friend that might help Russia blunt the impact of economic sanctions over its invasion of Ukraine, but President Xi Jinping’s government is giving no sign it might be willing to risk its own access to U.S. and European markets by doing too much.
Even if Beijing wanted to, its ability to support President Vladimir Putin by importing more Russian gas and other goods is limited.

Japan firm-owned cargo ship hit by missile off Ukraine.
A cargo ship owned by a Japanese firm was hit by a missile off the coast of Ukraine in the Black Sea on Friday, injuring one crew member, the marine transportation firm in western Japan said Saturday.
The Panamanian-registered cargo ship Namura Queen was damaged and one of the 20 Filipino crew sustained a non-life threatening injury to his shoulder, according to the firm based in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture.

Magnitude 6.2 earthquake kills 7 on Indonesia's Sumatra.
A strong and shallow earthquake shook Indonesia's Sumatra island on Friday, killing seven people and injuring 85, while causing panic on the island and in neighboring Malaysia and Singapore.
The magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck about 66 kilometers north-northwest of Bukittinggi, a hilly town in West Sumatra province, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was centered about 12 kilometers below the Earth's surface.

New economic security law now before Diet for approval.
The government OK’d a bill to promote economic security that would ensure a steady supply of strategically important goods such as semiconductors and submitted it to the Diet for approval on Feb. 25.
Critics contend it would hand the government too much say in how companies go about their business.

Japan logs record low childbirths in 2021, deaths at postwar high.
The number of children born in Japan fell to a record low for the sixth consecutive year in 2021, with deaths at the highest since World War II, highlighting the continuing trend of the country's population decline, government data showed Friday.
The number of newborns dropped 3.4 percent from 2020 to 842,897 while deaths increased 4.9 percent to 1,452,289, resulting in a natural population decrease of 609,392 in the country of 125 million, according to preliminary data by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

Over 70% of homeless people in Tokyo unvaccinated for COVID: survey.
More than 70% of homeless people in Japan's capital who responded to a survey had not been vaccinated for COVID-19, a support group revealed on Feb. 24.
It conducted the survey on people who came to a soup kitchen the group runs at a park in Shibuya ward and 83 people responded. Among them, 55 people were living on the streets, 42 of whom -- over 70% -- had not had a coronavirus vaccine shot.

Japan govt to expand gasoline subsidy program in March.
The government announced Friday that it will significantly expand a subsidy program to rein in gasoline and other fuel prices.
Given that crude oil prices remain high in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the government will raise the current subsidy cap of \5 per liter to \25 in March. Details will be discussed at a meeting of relevant Cabinet ministers to be held shortly.
