Putin: Snowden will leave Russia at earliest opportunity
NSA-leaker Edward Snowden will leave Russia as soon as he gets such opportunity, but for now the situation is unclear, says Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"He is familiar with the conditions of granting political asylum, and judging by the latest statements, is shifting his position. The situation is not clear now," Putin said.
The president stressed that the US basically trapped ex-CIA employee Snowden in Russia while he was in transit to other countries.
