Today’s best European front pages

On this 20 March again, most of European dailies have their main headlines on Ukraine, as Russian troops and local pro-Russian militias have forced local forces to abandon their bases in the Crimean region. Interesting though, Austrian daily Die Presse headlines on the new possible goals the EU might set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The issue will be discussed in today and tomorrow's European council, held in Brussels, along, of course, with the Ukrainian crisis and the tensions with Moscow. Meanwhile, the main government parties have lost yesterday's local elections in the Netherlands. Labour (PvdA) even lost Amsterdam.
