TOKYO, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo shares ended sharply lower on the last trading day of this week, with the benchmark Nikkei index hitting a one-month low on the Ukrainian crisis and a stronger yen.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average plunged 488.32 points, or 3. 30 percent, from Thursday to end at 14,327.66, its lowest finish since Feb. 14.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was down 38.76 points, or 3.22 percent, at 1, 164.70.

Decliners were led by utility, machinery and pharmaceutical issues.

The turnover was about 3,240.3 billion yen (about 31.82 billion U.S. dollars).
