Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Majority of Germans against anti-Russia economic sanctions | Business | DW.DE | 07.03.2014

The survey indicated widespread public support for Chancellor Angela Merkel's policy of trying to stay away from anything but symbolic sanctions and backing the concept of a contact group that would reopen direct communications between Moscow and Kyiv.

A total of 77 percent of Germans appeared to strictly oppose any considerations of excluding Russia from the G8 group of nations, while 92 percent believed severing diplomatic relations was completely out of the question.

Seventy-two percent of Germans supported economic help for Ukraine, while only 12 percent backed any military cooperation with Kyiv.

As I observed, this time the media is the most gung-ho and Atlanticist and doesn't even contain its displeasure with politics (and now the population). FAlso worth to recall how the New York Times mis-interpreted Merkel.
