President Barack Obama this week cancelled his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, following Russia's decision to grant temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, who has admitted leaking secrets about U.S. national security surveillance.
The administration's hopes for a "reset" relationship with Russia have proved complicated and in some cases discouraging.
Washington and Moscow have disagreements on missile defense, Syria, missile reductions, economic and trade issues, and human rights issues. Obama also recently criticized Russia's anti-gay propaganda law.
"The Russians have reset, they've reset alright, back to about 1955," said Republican Sen. John McCain, who has been a vocal critic of Russia and Putin in the past.
