Ukrainian tanks are transported from their base in Perevalne, outside Simferopol, Crimea, Wednesday, March 26, 2014. 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)

Ukrainian soldiers transport their tanks from their base in Perevalnoe, outside Simferopol, Crimea, Wednesday, March 26, 2014. Ukraine has started withdrawing its troops and weapons from Crimea, now controlled by Russia. Foreign policy used to stand out as a not-so-bleak spot in the public’s waning assessment of Barack Obama. Not anymore. He’s getting low marks for handling Russia’s swoop into Ukraine, and more Americans than ever disapprove of the way Obama is doing his job, according to a new poll. Close to 9 out of 10 Americans support sanctions as a response to Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. They are divided over whether the U.S. sanctions so far are about right or not strong enough, the Associated Press-GfK poll found. (AP Photo/Pavel Golovkin)
