Moscow's Next Move: What is the Kremlin's Plan in Ukraine?

Vladimir Putin may have pulled troops back from the border, but by no means does this signal the end of the Ukrainian crisis. For the first time since the February 22nd ousting of Ukraine's president, Putin has spoken. The Russian president staged a surprise press conference at his Dacha outside Moscow where he blew hot and cold; opening the door for dialogue while simultaneously staking his turf. Can Putin's press conference ease the tension?

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