Bullets flying in Crimea today. Russian forces opened fire, but the warning shots sailed over the heads of unarmed Ukrainian forces. Since the invasion there has been no open fighting and no loss of life. Anderson takes a look at the situation in Ukraine over the last 24 hours.
Anderson spoke with CNN's Ben Wedeman who is in Crimea along with former CNN Moscow correspondent Jill Dougherty in Kiev.
CNN's Ben Wedeman is in Crimea where he describes life there with the "men in green." They are the often-masked gunmen patrolling the streets in uniforms without insignias identifying themselves as Russians. While speaking with Anderson and Matthew Chance, Ben goes on to say that despite the invasion, life in Crimea "pretty much seems to be going on as normal."
