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.

Russia presses invasion to outskirts of Ukrainian capital.
Russia pressed its invasion of Ukraine to the outskirts of the capital Friday after unleashing airstrikes on cities and military bases and sending in troops and tanks from three sides in an attack that could rewrite the global post-Cold War security order.
Explosions sounded before dawn in Kyiv as Western leaders scheduled an emergency meeting and Ukraine's president pleaded for international help.

Ukraine's nuclear agency finds Chernobyl radiation rise.
Ukraine's nuclear energy regulatory agency says that higher than usual gamma radiation levels have been detected in the area near the decommissioned Chernobyl nuclear plant, after it was seized by the Russian military.
The State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate said Friday that higher gamma radiation levels have been detected in the Chernobyl zone, but didn't provide details of the increase.

Propaganda, fake videos of Ukraine invasion bombard users.
The messages, videos and photos flying across Twitter, Facebook and Telegram far outnumber the airstrikes raining down on Ukraine.
They claim to show Russian fighter jets being shot down or Ukrainians dodging for cover in their own homes.
Some are real, horrifying images of this war. Others had been lurking on the internet for years before Russia launched the largest attack on a European country since World War II.

Tokyo recorded 30 ‘stealth Omicron’ cases by late January.
Tokyo confirmed 30 cases of infections with the BA.2 Omicron subvariant by the end of January, the metropolitan government said on Feb. 25.
The subvariant is known abroad as “stealth Omicron” because it is difficult to tell apart from other variants.
Although the number of new COVID-19 cases, along with how many patients have been hospitalized with the disease, have both stopped rising in the capital, experts voiced concerns for the highly transmissible subvariant.

Experts warn COVID-19 deaths surging as cases slowly recede.
While new cases of COVID-19 have been slowly falling, the number of people dying from the disease--mostly among the elderly--is not receding and is hitting record daily highs.
That is according to a new analysis of the sixth wave of novel coronavirus infections by a health ministry advisory board, published at its meeting on Feb. 24.

Order nixed for businessmen to pay 8 billion yen in back taxes.
The National Tax Tribunal has overturned a decision by regional tax authorities that ordered the founder of Sazaby League Ltd. and an asset management firm to pay a total of 8 billion yen ($69 million) in back taxes, sources said.
The tribunal cited a lack of clear basis for the order, according to the sources.
It is unusual for the tribunal to revoke an order for such a massive amount.

Internet ad revenue tops regular media for first time.
Internet advertising revenue topped the total of the four traditional media markets for the first time in 2021, advertising giant Dentsu Inc. announced on Feb. 24.
Spending on internet advertising soared by 21.4 percent to 2.7 trillion yen, topping the total ad revenue collected by newspapers, magazines, radio and TV for the first time since 1996, when records were first kept.

Shionogi seeks approval for its COVID-19 pills for mild patients.
Shionogi & Co. announced on Feb. 25 that it had applied for health ministry approval for manufacturing and selling its oral COVID-19 pill, which could greatly boost the supply of oral medications in Japan.
If approved, it will be the third oral treatment designated for COVID-19 patients in Japan with mild symptoms.

Japan to aid universities seen making world-leading findings.
The Japanese government adopted legislation on Friday to recognize and financially support domestic universities that are expected to produce world-leading research results.
Accredited universities will be given several tens of billions of yen in aid per school out of a planned 10-trillion-yen-fund. The government plans to select a few universities that will receive the aid starting in fiscal 2024.

Putin announces Ukraine military operation, explosions heard.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced a military operation in Ukraine and warned other countries that any attempt to interfere with the Russian action would lead to “consequences you have never seen.”

UN chief appeals to Putin to stop the conflict.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop his troops' offensive against Ukraine.
Guterres was responding on Wednesday to Putin's announcement of a special Russian military operation in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donbas.

3,000 people stranded at Hokkaido airport due to snowfall.
More than 3,000 passengers were stranded at Shin-Chitose Airport here through the early morning hours on Feb. 24 as heavy snowfall brought the region’s train services to a grinding halt.
Hokkaido Railway Co. on Feb. 23 suspended its railway services on a widescale basis, including trains bound for Sapporo, capital of the northernmost prefecture. The railway company could not remove enough snow to give the green light as heavy snow continued falling.

Kishida calls off Hiroshima visit with Emanuel over Ukraine.
Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has canceled a planned visit to Hiroshima with Rahm Emanuel, the U.S. ambassador to Japan, because of the growing crisis in Ukraine, government sources said.
The decision was made before Russia escalated its military action against Ukraine on Feb. 24, according to the sources.

U.S.-China feud cited as biggest threat to peace in Northeast Asia.
A “deepening U.S.-China conflict” is the biggest threat to peace in Northeast Asia in 2022, according to a survey of 201 diplomacy and security experts in Japan, the United States, China and South Korea.
“North Korea as a nuclear power” was picked as the second largest risk to the region in the survey conducted by Genron NPO, a Tokyo-based nonprofit organization, and other groups in January and February this year.

Old grudge fuels confusion in governor’s race in Ishikawa.
Ishikawa Prefecture in central Japan, long a conservative stronghold, has been led by Masanori Tanimoto for seven terms, the longest tenure of any sitting governor in Japan.
But when Tanimoto, 76, announced last autumn that he would not seek an eighth term, the cork that had kept political animosity under control came loose.

Toyota signals readiness to fully meet wage demands.
Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda signaled the company’s readiness on Wednesday to fully meet demands from its labor union in this spring’s wage talks.
The Japanese automaker’s management aims to reward employees sufficiently for their efforts over the past year, Toyoda said in a meeting with the labor union.
“There are no differences of opinions between the company and the labor union over wages and bonuses,” Toyoda said.

Alert level raised for Japan's Mt. Ontake due to more volcanic quakes.
Japan's weather agency on Wednesday raised its alert level for Mt. Ontake in the central part of the country, warning against going near its crater as volcanic earthquakes have increased.
The level-2 alert for the 3,067-meter volcano straddling Nagano and Gifu prefectures is the first since Aug. 21, 2017, with the Japan Meteorological Agency warning about the possibility of flying rocks around the 1-kilometer area from the crater on the mountain's summit.

Man who fell sick after 223 hours in overtime wins suit.
