U.S. and Russia lovestruck no more. Now, "it's complicated"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Following weeks of diplomatic tension prompted by Russia moves in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, the United States on Wednesday (April 16) updated its relationship status with Russia. Now, "it's complicated." Although the U.S. State Department has not posted a relationship status with Russia on its Facebook page or other social media sites, spokeswoman Marie Harf noted that while there are still areas of mutual cooperation between Washington and Moscow, the relationship is "complicated." "I don't think anyone would be surprised that the events of the last weeks and months have really been hard on the relationship and that's why we've made very clear that this action can't stand and that we will continue to take steps against Russia if they continue this activity. But it's a complicated relationship," Harf said.
