Unsurprisingly, on this 19 March most of European dailies have their headline on the signature of the annexion treaty of the Ukrainian region of Crimea by the Russian federation, yesterday at the Kremlin, and its consequences on the relations between Russia and the West as well as with other former Soviet republics. The same day, an Ukrainian soldier was killed by pro-Russian troops in an Ukrainian military base in the Crimean capital of Simferopol.
