US-Russia Tensions

The bilateral meeting between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin initially scheduled in Moscow in September, before the Group of 20 summit, has been canceled. The cancellation was in retaliation to Russia granting NSA leaker Edward Snowden a year’s asylum in the country last week.

With the Group of 20 summit scheduled in St. Petersburg in September, it remains unclear whether US-Russia relations will have been resolved by then.
