Putin allows Snowden asylum; must stop campaign against US

In a self-professed shocking event, Russian president Vladimir Putin has offered NSA-whistleblower Edward Snowden political asylum in Russia on the condition that he stops all work against the United States. Putin commented in a press release:

“If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: he has to stop his work aimed at damaging our U.S. partners, no matter how strange this sounds coming from me,” Putin told reporters.

Although Snowden has been trapped at a Russian airport for over a week, with potential safe passage to Equador blocked, the Russians have maintained a clear stance that they will not extradite him.

“Russia never extradites anyone anywhere and is not going to extradite anyone. No one ever extradites anyone to us,” a Russian immigration official said, adding that Snowden “is a free man.”

However, Putin has made it clear that Snowden needs to find a new destination if he insists on continuing his campaign against the United States of America.

  1. I think every country in the world should be offering Snowden asylum. The American government should be ashamed for it’s hypocrysy, and the American people should be ashamed for allowing their government to violate their personal freedoms to any extent.

    1. Americans are ashamed, don’t imagine for a second that ALL Americans are following along blindly. People are starting to open their eyes at the corruption EVERYWHERE not just in America. All people of all nations need to stand together and fight corrupt governments and bring about peace.
