Edward Snowden is now a Russian citizen

The former national security agent was granted citizenship by President Vladimir Putin

The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, granted Russian citizenship to Edward Snowden, the former US intelligence analyst wanted by US Justice for leaking to Wikileaks abundant information about the National Security Agency (NSA).

The Russian president signed a decree, collected by the official Government Legal Information portal, in which he grants citizenship to dozens of people, including Snowden, a 39-year-old American.

Snowden is wanted by the United States Justice after in 2013 he leaked numerous secret documents in which different espionage techniques carried out by the National Security agency were revealed, including illegal wiretapping of international political leaders.

Once he fled the United States, his first destination was Hong Kong, although he later ended up in Russia. In 2014 he received a first residence permit that, years later, would be extended indefinitely.
