Russia has agreed to Snowden's asylum request and has Magnitsky suite at Butyrka ready for him now!
Russia is not helping if they want Snowden to shut up. That's the exact opposite of helping.
Putin did well, he cannot let a US citizen create a casus beli with Usa
but Russia can & will help
If Russia like to get a place in a world of peace ,it has to show more courage-US is partner of you?
'Anti-US activity'? Really??? Putin... please don't talk this way. Snowden is helping US, he is a true patriot. What Snowden did is helping also the whole world.
Puti n's rhetoric is quite clever & I understand he is only feeding US regime some meaningless nonsense to leave them dumbfounded, but it is over most people's heads! Unfortunately his words will be used to lend credibility to US regime's false narratives :(
I think his reply was a mistake, it is too much that same doublespeak of America. One can not be this soft against the rise of US creeping fascism.
Snowden is a hero and will grow to be an old man in Russia. Putin's stood up to the real terrorists!
Putin's no doubt fully aware there's no stopping it now. It's posturing for political correctness.
Snowden should dress up to look like Bin Laden. Then he wouldn't be found for years!
Sad to see no other country has the guts to accept Mr. Snowden's asylum request. Poor guy.
Putin, protector of "Christian Values - Humanity, Truth, Justice", silencing Snowden ?
1996. Velenco in Russian MIG 25 request political asylum to US. Russia ask to return but US refused
ED snowden should preside over an american government in exile!
Once he gets to S.america, Ed Snowden's new war name will be 'Lalo Nieves'!
An apartment with a view in Caracas + a chance to travel to friendly S. American countries .Oh yes
What's up with Putin's "US partners" rhetoric? Putin owes us all an explanation! US is fascist
Snowden: Go to North Korea! You will have a hero's welcome &a chance to denounce & expose US fascism
Snowden is too smart to misunderstand Putin's remarks like that.
He has more information to release.
Ed, don't worry, people worldwide are on your side.ask your gf to join u and get married there.
