Putin Says Russia Is Not Controlling Snowden
MOSCOW (AP) — President Vladimir Putin says Moscow isn't controlling National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, who has asylum in Russia.
Putin says any revelations published by Snowden must have come from materials he provided before landing in Russia.
He reaffirms that Russia made providing refuge to Snowden conditional on his halting what he called ant-American activities.
Putin says he hasn't met with Snowden and insists that Russian security agencies haven't worked with him and have not asked him any questions related to NSA activities against Russia.
