MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Whistleblower Edward Snowden, wanted by the United States for leaking secret information, said he was not afraid that Russia may turn him over in a bid to improve strained relations with Washington, Guardian reported Friday.
The former NSA contractor, who revealed massive National Security Agency surveillance in 2013, said in a videochat Thursday that it would be "crazy to dismiss" an extradition deal between the leaders of Russia and the United States.
"If I was worried about safety, if the security and the future of myself was all that I cared about, I would still be in Hawaii," he said.
"I think I did the right thing," Snowden continued. "While I can’t predict what the future looks like, I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, I can be comfortable with the way I’ve lived to today."
The powers of one government are inherited by the next. Reforming them is now the greatest responsibility of this President, long overdue.— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) 10 November 2016
Snowden requested a temporary asylum in Russia and received a Russian residence permit on August 1, 2014.
