Why the EU needs to act now

The EU can't remain impassive in the face of the bloody clashes in Kiev, the liberal-conservative daily Corriere della Sera comments: "Despite increasingly violent protests and the no less brutal reaction of the regime, the West has confined itself to urging both sides to start a dialogue and conciliation. But now that the tanks have been rolled out on Kiev's Independence Square Europe no longer has any excuses. It can impose sanctions and limit the freedom of movement and capital of Ukrainian leaders but at the same time leave the door open and offer the prospect of immediate aid if a new government in Kiev starts moving towards the EU again. Otherwise Europe will be proving the US diplomat Victoria Nuland and her notorious 'Fuck the EU' right."
