Would Putin be interested in an "off-ramp" to end the Ukraine crisis?

There are serious questions about how far Russian President Putin really thought through the Crimea invasion. There is late word that President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed a possible "off-ramp" for Russia to end the crisis. Anderson discussed Putin's motivations with CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein and Fareed Zakaria, host of Fareed Zakaria GPS.

Kiev's Independence Square is calm but ready for battle

More than 100 people lost their lives last month in Kiev's Independence Square during fierce battles between protesters and police. Anderson walks through the square today. He found barricades still standing along with arsenals of molotov cocktails and rocks. It is all still at the ready, just in case a new round of violence erupts.

Senator Marco Rubio: "It is important… we avoid the harsh rhetoric that could be counterproductive"

Florida Senator Marco Rubio spoke to Anderson about Russia's invasion of Crimea and says "there has got to be a consequence for this action." In Washington, lawmakers from both parties are working to draft sanctions that would punish Russia. But some Republicans are also openly criticizing President Obama's response to the Ukraine crisis. Senator Rubio admits that he is a critic of "the Obama foreign policy in general" but explained to Anderson why he supports the administration's response to Ukraine.

Keeping Them Honest: What is Vladimir Putin talking about?

At times, Russian President Vladimir Putin claims there are no Russian troops in Crimea, but at other times he justifies the invasion as protection from "Nazis and anti-Semites" inside Ukraine. That's leaving many to wonder where he is getting his information. After speaking to President Putin last weekend, German Chancellor Angela Merkel described him as "in another world." Jim Sciutto takes a closer look.

As a former National Security Adviser to President George W. Bush, Stephen Hadley has met with Putin and knows how the Kremlin operates. Anderson spoke with him and former CNN Moscow correspondent Jill Dougherty.
