NHK reported that the GOJ decided at a meeting of relevant cabinet ministers this morning on specific steps Japan will take to assist Ukrainian evacuees. The meeting decided that the Foundation for the Welfare and Education of the Asian People, which has expertise in supporting refugees, will be in charge of providing accommodations, living expenses, and other necessities to evacuees soon after their arrival in Japan. The organization will later serve as a liaison in introducing the evacuees to municipalities and businesses offering accommodations and other support. Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno, who chaired the meeting, told the participants that Foreign Minister Hayashi, State Minister of Justice Tsushima, and Special Advisor to the Prime Minister for international human rights issues Nakatani will depart for Poland this evening to prepare for Japan’s acceptance of the evacuees. Matsuno instructed the relevant cabinet ministers to provide the necessary support to those who are relying on Japan after fleeing Ukraine amid severe circumstances.
