TOKYO -- Russia's invasion of Ukraine poses concern for the possibility of China using force against Taiwan unless the international community acts, said more than three-quarters of respondents to a weekend survey by Nikkei Inc. and TV Tokyo.

Concern over the risk of spillover effects on Taiwan was expressed by 77% of respondents in Japan overall, rising to 83% among those in their 40s and 50s. Just 11% of all respondents expressed no such worries.
