epa04221840 (FILE) A file photo dated 28 January 2014 of President of Russia Vladimir Putin attending a news conference at the end of a EU Russia Summit at the European Council headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, where he was meeting with top European Union officials. European Union officials have been preparing three scenarios for economic sanctions against Russia, from low-intensity measures affecting items such as luxury goods, to a ban on oil and gas imports, according to a document seen by German news agency dpa.

The issue could come up again when EU leaders meet on 27 May 2014 to consider their response to the 25 May elections in Ukraine.  EPA/OLIVIER HOSLET

“Russia holds together as a whole country only thanks to force. Only through the suppression of freedom. Only with violence and the imposition of artificial consensus. The nation has no internal bonds, its own raison d‘étre and desire to live together. In order to hold
