West has more threats than it thinks

Economic sanctions alone won't help against Russian aggression, the liberal-conservative Neue Zürcher Zeitung comments, calling for a tougher approach in the form of a containment policy: "In the international debate about Russian aggression against Ukraine, the players as well as commentators are avoiding the term 'containment' like the devil holy water. There is absolutely no reason for this given that far from being an escalating response to a threatening scenario or an executed military action, containment is the contrary: a prudent cushioning of antagonistic actions that falls short of military intervention. Depending on the circumstances it may take the form of purely diplomatic talks, but also more forceful reactions such as the drawing of red lines, the shifting of troops, embargoes and even blockades. The international community must finally react firmly to Moscow's violations of international law."
