Time to impose sanctions on Russia

Marko Mihkelson suggests that since Russia obviously intends to prolong and even perpetuate its military occupation of Georgia, and is doing its utmost to paralyse the economic life of the country, it's time that Russia be given a taste of its own medicine. While Moscow can play on the dissensions between individual EU and NATO states regarding other types of response, a united stand on the matter of economic sanctions against Russia should not be too hard to achieve. And such sanctions could be quite effective. "After all, the oligarchs are human, too. Are they not?" Mihkelson asks.
