Today’s best European front pages

This 15 April we chose to display a selection of European dailies' front pages only on the Ukraine crisis, as Kiev's ultimatum to pro-Russian militias occupying official buildings expired yesterday and the tension is mounting while Europe waits for the Ukrainian interim government's reaction and Russian President Vladimir Putin's next move.
Another news worth mentioning is pretty Catholic Malta lawmakers approving yesterday by 37 to 0 a bill that legalises both same-sex unions and joint adoptions by gay couples, sparking celebrations in the capital, La Valletta.
And last but not least, anti-euro Ukip leader and upcoming European elections would-be winner Nigel Farage is facing "an expenses investigation into almost £60,000 of 'missing' European Union funds paid into his personal bank account", as The Times reports.
