Today’s best European front pages — on Ukraine

 Most of European dailies share the same headline — if not the same picture — on this 14 April: the tension in Eastern Ukraine, as pro-Russian militias occupying official buildings came to clash with Ukrainian defense forces, in an escalation that many observers fear could lead to open war between Kiev and Moscow. We deliberately chose to display only a selection of the front pages having this news as their headline.

'War in the East' - Luxemburger Word, Luxembourg.

'Army called in' - Svenska Dagbladet, Stockholm.
