Putin Makes His Move: What's the West Going to do about Crimea?

Russia has made its move. Crimea is now effectively under Moscow's control, leaving beleaguered Ukrainian forces confined to their barracks. Yes, there are calls for reprisals and sanctions, but they come from a continent that gets one third of its natural gas from none other than Russia. True, the Moscow stock market nosedived as investors ran for cover, but how much will it weigh on the mind of a Kremlin that claims it's merely protecting its citizens?

Produced and prepared by David Boratov, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis
