Where is Europe?

Colin Powell, for United States government, has refused to accept the fraudulent election result in Ukraine.

Canada, with its large Ukrainian diaspora, has condemned the fraud.

The Europeans have expressed concern.

How long are European politicians going to go on expressing concern rather than calling the situation what it is? At time of writing there are few encouraging signs.

Will they "express concern" that the Yanukovych government set up a Special Commission to find out what happened in the election? Will they "express" concern when that Special Commission's results - months or years down the line - are "far from satisfactory"?

Where is the will?
