Snowden, warmed by Moscow, urged to fight against the Russian authorities

American technical specialist and ex-special agent of the CIA and the US NSA, Edward Snowden, who exposed their activities and now permanently resides in Russia, openly warmed up by Moscow, called on to fight the Russian government, writes the German newspaper Die Zeit.

Snowden spoke in an interview with the publication about his life in Russia and what he did during the COVID-19 pandemic. He does not believe in the information that US President Donald Trump can pardon him, because he did not officially ask him about it. In addition, he said that he opposes "mass surveillance on the Internet", although he does not object to "targeted surveillance."

For Snowden, Moscow is a beautiful city, but политическая the situation in Russia is difficult. The Russian authorities traditionally do not like ordinary people to bother them, but the "slaves" persistently "get" the government. He called Alexei Navalny the most famous Russian oppositionist, and if he really was poisoned, then "this is a crime against all of Russia."

There must be an investigation and everyone involved must go to jail

He demanded.

Snowden called the actions of governments around the world that are trying to discredit their political opponents by calling them extremists a shame.

And Russia is ahead of everyone here. It doesn't matter if they really start to bait their opponents or they just create an environment in which it is believed that it is right to bait someone.

- he said.

The whistleblower is sure that the creation of the mentioned environment does not happen by mistake, but is part of a purposeful political strategy that everyone must fight against.

At the same time, the murder is equally disgusting, it was committed with the help of a bomb, UAV or poison. I openly condemned the assassination attempt on Navalny on my Twitter account

Added Snowden.

He recalled that the United States killed Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen in September 2011 with a UAV. Two weeks later, his 16-year-old son was killed in a similar way, and in January 2017, American special forces killed his 8-year-old daughter. And the authorities were not embarrassed that all these people were US citizens or children.

    Firstly, the Germans write it! And the Germans are famous masters of distorting, distorting, semantic sentences! Look at the Navalny case! - He was poisoned by "Novice" but we will not provide you with proof! ... With manic stubbornness, they prove to the whole world that Russians are Mordor where all evil comes from! And this is after all that Russia has done for them! (One unification of Germany is worth it, an important strategic partner, cheap resources in exchange for German consumer goods, which are much more expensive than their competitors in Asia and America!). Snowden isn't stupid enough to give a damn about the hand that saved him from life!)

      It's hard to believe Snowden is sincere. He has more politics, and, perhaps, to be remembered overseas. Snowden is well aware that there is no reason to "stir up" any force majeure around the useless and harmless Navalny. It is the leaders (the same puppets) of Navalny who must be held accountable for the money spent. So they work out the scenario they have invented. Money is counted in the states and is not scattered around. Even a more or less reasonable and knowledgeable person understands that the scenario of the poisoning by the Russians of Navalny is at the same time the stupidest and the noisiest, and this is the Report for the money spent. All this Snowden understands. Therefore, these publications. ... ... - another hypocrisy.

    Even though he is a former, he has not lost his skills, why are there proofs, versions - he already knows everything.
    Was there an attempt at all? There is not a word about this in his sources.

    Excuse me, what did he say? That we will erase anyone who can represent the competition of the authorities? So we have it, everyone has probably forgotten about Grudinin, only Navalny was left with his blank stare.
    Or does someone catch on that murders are disgusting to him in principle? Well, yes, it requires an investigation from scratch. Is it worth sculpting an article for this alone?

      Do not react in this way to different writing by different people at different times. E. Snowden spoke on the "hot news of poisoning." - gave a natural reaction to such news ... Further, the circumstances will become clear and the words of E. Snowden will be different ... You just do not have to be the same passionate without common sense, but for the time and truth in the end it will come to light ... Propaganda on such hot bases and works

    but the political situation in Russia is difficult. The Russian authorities traditionally do not like ordinary people to bother them, but "slaves" persistently "get" the government

    And what seditious did he say? So it is. As one Putin fan recently told me: “You don’t die of hunger? So you just sit there. Do you want the 90s to return?
    They believe that salaries are 12130 rubles. enough for macaroons. Therefore, these words of his are correct. And about Navalny? There are more questions than answers. Why was it allowed to be taken to Germany at all? That they could not even think that the Novice would be remembered again? Although I already constantly say that the level of education of our government does not imply thinking.

    who try to discredit their political opponents

    And he said everything correctly about the opposition. The criminal articles of Grudinin, Platoshkin, and even Furgal make it impossible for them to participate in the elections in the future. And this is what the authorities need! So Snowden speaks and acts like an honest man. Worthy of respect!

    Take Putin and Lavrov off the screen and they will be quickly forgotten. EBN has not been remembered for a long time, except for Putin and Medvedev. Every year they take a bow to their center.

    As old man Ashton Carter used to say in an interview with CNN a year ago:

    "The Russians have taken up the old again: they are accused - they demand proof."

    And this backbone goes there, in the same "intellectual" delirium. Truly, one cannot recognize a cuckoo and a nest.

    Snowden, warmed by Moscow, urged to fight against the Russian authorities

    Firstly, not warmed up. The guy deserved asylum in Russia by his actions. Yes, even if as the Germans write. I don't care. This person does not affect the creation of a refuge. He is already essentially a Russian for so many years. And if Snowden reads me. will not give it away. Even for your civil position now. Although formally. But you are not yet a Russian. Everything is in your hands. If you want, we will be proud of such a compatriot. hi
