Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 25, 2014, after a Democratic caucus luncheon. Reid said Democrats are likely to remove a major roadblock preventing Congress from passing legislation authorizing sanctions on Russia and providing aid to Ukraine. He added that it appears that Democrats have agreed on a way to move the legislation forward without a provision affecting the International Monetary Fund. He says he feels strongly about IMF reforms, but that it’s important to assist Ukraine and hit Russia with sanctions over its military incursion into Crimea. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Ukraine has started withdrawing its troops and weapons from Crimea, now controlled by Russia. Even if Russia makes no further advances into Ukraine, can the West’s relationship with Moscow go back to business as usual? That’s the complex question underlying President Barack Obama’s discussions in Europe this week, one that poses particular challenges for the U.S. leader, whose foreign policy agenda has seemingly inextricable links to Russia.(AP Photo/Pavel Golovkin)
