BRUSSELS, October 15. /TASS/. Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden will address participants in the Festival of Liberties in Brussels in a video conference mode on October 23, Belgian media reported on Wednesday.
He will deliver a 20-minute speech on human rights and counter-terrorism efforts. Snowden was given a three-year residence permit in Russia in August and currently resides in Moscow.
The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) is inviting Edward Snowden, who is wanted in the United States for leaking US special services’ eavesdropping secrets to the world public, to be anchorman of LDPR-TV show about secret services, a member of the LDPR faction in the State Duma (lower house) Andrey Svintsov said on Thursday.
“We’ve sent an invitation to Snowden. We hope that his experience and knowledge will help our audience learn all nuances in the sphere of secret service and interaction between our security services,” Svintsov said.
LDPR-TV is opening a new series of the show about secret services, he said, adding Andrey Lugovoy, a deputy in the State Duma, would be in charge of this.
