President Obama has canceled a one-on-one September summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White House says.

It’s the most dramatic effect so far on U.S.-Russian relations in the wake of Russia’s decision to grant “NSA leaker” temporary asylum while he tries to get safe haven in some third country.

Obama is still set to attend the in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Sept. 5 and 6 — which Putin will host. The meeting that’s being canceled was to have been between Obama and Putin in Moscow while the president is in Russia.
