Asked about the human rights situation in Russia, where he has lived for two years, and in particular the Russian authorities' control over the Internet, Mr. Snowden was pessimistic. "It's disappointing, it's irritating," he said. Snowdon said: "the Russian government was determined to control the Internet, more and more internal controls people see things, including some aspects of their lives, to one person to another person what way to express love is right and what is not, this is fundamentally wrong, not only is the role of any government should not be."

He said the departure from Hong Kong to Russia was suggested to him by wikileaks founder Julian assange. "I think his intentions were good. His first consideration was my safety, and he wanted to protect the information in my hands. But for me, the problem is that I don't care about my own safety and self-protection.

Mr. Snowden criticized all the governments that had ignored him and his supporters, noting that some western European countries include Norway, as well as Latin American countries and Canada. "I asked 21 countries for asylum... They all remain silent, refusing to process applications because they are not made in their own countries.
