7:03 am
where's harvey weinstein? harvey. >> this morning's "eye-opener" is brought to you by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. good morning norah. >> good morning to you, charlie. the president has a big test today. >> and we begin there. the united states and russia are nose-to-nose in their biggest confrontation since the days of the soviet union. russian forces are tightening their grip on crimea, a vital region of ukraine. the obama administration is threatening russian president vladimir putin with economic sanctions. >> and ukraine's new prime minister said this morning that his country will not give up crimea to anyone. he's accusing russia of declaring war, and ukraine's military is getting ready to fight. elizabeth palmer is at a ukrainian air force base in
7:04 am
sevastopol crimea. >> reporter: he has spoken up in geneva, and he has made it clear that russian troop also stay in southern ukraine, until, as he put it, the situation normalizes. in crimea, the russians are in control after a bloodless takeover that's lasted less than a week. there are still pocketing of resistance. ukrainian forces barricade inside their own bases. but they're surrounded by the russian military and hopelessly outnumbered. some have switched sides, including the head of the ukrainian navy. ukrainian troops who had hoisted the russian flag at their barricade, and they were backed by local militia who stole our body armor and told us to turn back. so we headed to the nearest railway station and took the train. we've just crossed the border into crimea and the train didn't even slow down. there were certainly no official checkpoints or controls which goes to show you that until a couple of days ago, anyway,
7:05 am
crimea was a completely integral part of ukraine. all that has now changed. this is occupied territory, and it's gotten western ukrainians on the streets protesting. in odessa, thousands marched against the russian invasion and in the capital, the president called the invasion a declaration of war. >> russia is to realize that they will pay the price, and not only russia but those who are today in crimea, and they present an illegal and traitorous act an illegal power in crimea. >> reporter: charlie and norah, i'm standing in one of the pockets of resistance i mentioned. i'm on an ukrainian air base. you may see a couple of soldiers. they're standing their ground. the russians have been at the
7:06 am
gate, and they said, we want you off that base today. nobody knows exactly what the implied "or else" is. nobody knows what will happen next. it's very tense indeed. >> thanks elizabeth. on wall street, the crisis is sending stocks down sharply at this hour. secretary of state john kerry will travel to ukraine tonight. sunday, he told bob schieffer that russia has committed, in his words, an incredible act of aggression. >> you just don't, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext. i think russia needs to think very carefully about the choice that it's making, and there are visa bans there are asset freezes, there's isolation with respect to trade and investment. american businesses may well want to start thinking twice about whether they want to do business with a country that behaves like this. these are serious implications. >> and president obama spoke with other world leaders
7:07 am
yesterday. major garrett is at the white house where officials say they're prepared to shut out russia. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the economic moves that secretary of state kerry just outlined are very real and the white house is hoping that vladimir putin, the russian president, will back down at least slightly and take the offer now on the table of international observers and international monitors in crimea, instead of risking long-term economic isolation. the fact is that everything the united states has done so far to punish russia, cancelling high-level talks on trade and energy expansion cancelling preparations for a g8 summit in sochi, russia are temporary and could be reveersed. if the united states and its western allies hit russia with economic sanctions or deny moscow access to global financial networks and key international bank accounts the damage to the russian economy could be longlasting and it could put u.s.-russian relations in the deepest, most confrontational stance they've been in the entire obama
7:08 am
presidency. some believe putin has overplayed his hand and will not fire shots in crimea and will not move his forces into less friendly parts of ukraine. with canada great britain, france, and germany all against russia moscow's own status in the g8 is also in jeopardy. these nations are also preparing, along with the united states, an economic package to rescue the transitional and fragile government in ukraine itself. the united states doesn't need or want to punish russia necessarily for this violation of the international law. it wants moscow to back off and ease the tensions. right now, as elizabeth palmer just said, russian forces are there in crimea they are a reality. and until they move out this will be a confrontation between those russian forces on the ground and the implied threat of economic sanctions from the west. norah and charlie? >> major, thank you. senior security contributor mike morell is with us, former deputy director at the cia. good morning. >> good morning. >> we want to talk about putin
7:09 am
and what he's up to. what are the larger risks at stake in this crisis? >> so i think the real risk here is that this war could spread. eastern ukraine is largely russian speaking and that could give putin a reason to move into eastern ukraine and have a larger war between ukraine and russia. >> why is putin doing this? what's he up to? >> two reasons. one, it's been a long time russian foreign policy in general and putin's desire in particular to establish control -- complete control over all of those states that used to be part of the former soviet union. and it is also his strong desire to undermine the united states at any chance he can. so moving in crimea sends a very powerful message not only to ukraine, but to all of those countries of the former soviet union, don't mess with me. and to do it a day after the president tells him not to gives the united states a black-eye. >> we've been talking about how fascinating this is and i know
7:10 am
you agree with what he's doing. let's talk about u.s. options, what options we have. you heard the secretary of state say repeatedly yesterday, we're going to make it hurt. but really economic sanctions? are we prepared to go all the way? >> so the things we've done already are pretty weak and putin will see them as weak. military action is not an option for obvious reasons. the only real option is economic sanctions. that could bite the russians. but do we really want to get into an economic war with russia, with a country that produces the second-most oil in the world and a country that produces the second-largest amount of natural gas in the world? he can cause real problems. >> the other question is what's at stake for president obama? "the new york times" today, the russian occupation of crimea has challenged obama as no other international crisis. at its heart, the advice seemed to pose the same question -- is mr. obama tough enough to take on the former kgb colonel in the kremlin?
7:11 am
>> the only thing vladimir putin understands is tough. and there has to be a tough response for putin to pay attention. >> but the president's credibility is at stake. >> i think so. >> all right. mike morell, thank you. a new storm is moving into the pacific northwest this morning. forecasters say it's the first in a series this week. meanwhile, parts of the east coast will see up to a foot of snow today. this is philadelphia which is under a snow emergency. schools and federal offices are closed in the district of columbia. jeff pegues is on the snowy national mall. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. it may be in the 50s out west but here in the nation's capital, as you can see, we're in the middle of this intensifying snowstorm. right now, probably 2 to 3 inches of snow on the ground but it's going to get worse. this is the same storm that coated parts of the south with ice and snow. rain turned to snow early this morning in the nation's capital, coating roadways with several inches of snow.
7:12 am
it's just the latest storm in an unrelenting winter. plummeting temperatures and sleet swept through parts of arkansas on sunday while in nearby oklahoma city crews worked to treat ice-covered roadways that led to accidents throughout the weekend. in philadelphia mayor michael nutter declared a snow emergency ahead of the storms. >> our teams are out there. they will fight this storm as they have fought all the other storms, but we do need your patience. >> reporter:
7:13 am
>> with the storm set to drop nearly a foot of snow in some parts of the mid-atlantic, less than 20 days from spring, winter fatigue has set in. >> it's going to be another rough one. i'm looking for that punxsutawney phil. >> reporter: whiteout conditions here in the nation's capital, and as the temperatures drop they're expecting a lot more snow. they're anticipating up to a foot of snow in some spots, and there is growing concern about power outages in this area. norah, charlie? >> jeff, thanks. in texas this morning, 65-mile stretch of interstate 45 is closed because of ice. some drivers say they've been stuck for 10 hours. stormy weather's causing trouble for airlines across the united states. so far today, more than 2,000 flights are cancelled. some of hollywood's newest faces are celebrating oscar wins this morning in the 86th annual academy awards making hifltry history of its own. nancy o'dell is at the "e.t." studio in los angeles.

"12 years a slave" won three of the biggest awards including best picture. "gravity" won the most oscars overall, but the show did break one unexpected record after host ellen degeneres wandered down into the audience with her smartphone. >> meryl, can you take it? >> oscar host ellen degeneres post a picture of herself in a star-studded selfie on twitter, and within an hour, it was the most retweeted selfie more than 1 million before the oscars were over. >> we just crashed twitter. we got an e-mail from twitter and we crashed and broke. >> i got this from mrs. shaw. >> the night's big winner was "12 years a slave" winning best picture, best adapted screenplay
7:15 am
and best supporting actress. >> laputo thanked director steve mcqueen. >> the first black person to win a best picture oscar. and amongst "gravity's" seven oscars were two for cuaron who won for best director. >> i'm mexican. i hope that like anything some mexicans were rooting for me. >> did you believe i had to move out of my beautiful home? >> cate blanchett was a front-runner ever since "blue jasmine" was released last summer. >> woody allen has been writing for years for women, and, you know incredibly complex, hilarious, extraordinary roles for women, and i was lucky get one.
7:16 am

"american hustle" "the wolf of wall street," "captain phillips"
7:17 am

currency circulating in the world. 17 17.5 trillion miles. >> that number is surprising though it's not surprising. doesn't this create a bigger divide between those high-paying business customer and those in first class and how do you think the consumers are going to react? >> you'd earn over 4,200 miles on delta. starting in january it goes down to 2,500 miles. so the incentive is to spend more money to earn more miles that you have difficulty redeeming. it's an amazing game. >> and the reason they're doing this obviously is revenue but also they're paying attention to the people paying the bills. >> that right. if you want a coach ticket from new york to hong kong i even seen it as low as $1,000. a first class ticket is $1,900.

me about this letter she got from a young girl who said she had wanted to change the color of her skin until she saw lupita come onto the scene and that made her accept her for who she was. and lupita talked about how that's what she feels like all this is happening to her for because she had felt the same way a as a young kid and that's why her speech about everybody accepting who they are hit home for her and was such a poignant ceremony. >> they use their speeches not to sort of thank a bunch of individuals. they used their speech to make a larger point and lupita says it doesn't escape me for so one moment that so much joy in my life is because of so much pain in others' lives. it's almost difficult to watch because it's a painful, very violent movie. >> last night it seemed as if she was channeling the spirits of those people. it was almost as if she sort of invoked them and brought them onto the stage and then she said
