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." 

Snowden requested a temporary asylum in Russia and received a Russian residence permit on August 1, 2014.
