EU finally adopts a joint approach

The sanctions could do much to further the European unification process, the liberal weekly paper Die Zeit hopes: "They could be seen as the first step in an unprecedented common defence policy. The Ukraine crisis could be for EU foreign policy what the financial crisis was for economic policy: a decisive step forward. Bearing the costs in the fight for peace together may make even more sense to the people than state help for banks. And in any case, the money would certainly be better invested. Nevertheless, the true test is still to come. Only if Putin decides to hit the EU's most vulnerable spots will we see how far the arduously negotiated solidarity extends. Imposing sanctions is easier than enduring them."
