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."
As tensions mount in Ukraine, CNN's journalists continue to cover the crisis from around the world. Anderson Cooper has traveled to Ukraine, and Christiane Amanpour had the first international television interview with Yulia Tymoshenko, the former Ukrainian Prime Minister who lead the Orange Revolution, since her release from prison.

‘Every Day in Cambodia: A CNN Freedom Project Documentary’ premieres on CNN/US Sunday at 7pET
‘Every Day In Cambodia’ is a powerful CNN Freedom Project documentary which follows Academy Award-winning actress and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking Mira Sorvino on a disturbing yet ultimately hopeful journey to Cambodia, where she shines a light on modern-day slavery.
Far from the bright lights of Hollywood, Sorvino speaks to survivors and urges governments to prosecute traffickers, demanding to know why the Cambodian government is still allowing this outrage to happen. Three mothers also reveal why they allow their young daughters to be so cruelly exploited.
“The brave Cambodian girl survivors who shared their stories broke my heart,” she said. “But their incredible spirits inspire me to continue fighting this atrocious scourge until all the victims can be brought to safety and their traffickers to justice.”
