Broadcasters led with reports on President Biden’s remarks on Tuesday that Russian President Putin’s order for the deployment of troops to two separatist regions in eastern Ukraine is “the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine” (NHK, Fuji TV), the number of COVID-19-related deaths topping 300 for the first time on Tuesday (NTV), the launch of vaccination reservations for children aged 5 to 11 in Minato-ku, Tokyo (TBS), and the cancellation of all flights at New Chitose Airport due to heavy snow (TV Asahi).


All national dailies except Mainichi gave top play to reports on Putin’s recognition of the independence of two regions in eastern Ukraine and his order for the deployment of a “peacekeeping” force. Mainichi led with a report on the decision by the Osaka High Court to order the state to compensate three people for forced sterilization under the now-defunct eugenics protection law.
