F.A.Z blasts Ukrainian authorities

One of Germany's premier newspapers, 'Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung' today carries an op-ed piece by Konrad Schuller calling for the EU to impose sanctions against individual Ukrainian government officials and to disrupt the Association Agreement negotiations..

"One thing is clear: the signing of an agreement celebrated with champagne and salmon canap├ęs, while one Ukrainian opposition politician after another disappears behind prison walls, would be a sad comedy."

The 'Economist' calls president Yanukovych: "thuggish, vengeful and guided by the codes of the underworld."

The detention of Tymosenko last week has raised criticism of Ukraine's leader to a new level.
