Moscow's foreign minister today vowed Russian troops would remain in Ukraine until the political situation normalizes. Major world powers condemned Russia's occupation over the weekend of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to be in Kiev tomorrow as a show of support for Ukraine's embattled interim government. U.S. and E.U. leaders are discussing sanctions and other options to pressure Russia to withdraw. U.S. officials say military intervention is not one of the options under consideration. Guest host Tom Gjelten and a panel of experts discuss the latest developments.
