    Is R2 and R3 in parallel ?
    The rule is that components are in-parallel, if both their terminals are connected.
    If I took the voltage source out, then they surely are. But how about this case? If there is another general rule when circuits contain voltage/current sources.

    The exception you suggest does not exist.

    So, are they in parallel or not?

    Parallel components will always have the same voltage across them. Is that the case here?

    No, they are in series .Trace the current flow from one terminal of the battery to the other terminal and you will see that the resistors are in series.
