Snowden should return to US to face justice - State Dept

United States State Department Spokesperson Ned Price underscored during the press briefing on Monday that former employee of the United States Central Intelligence Agency Edward Snowden "should return to the US to face justice as any other US citizen."

Following the news that Russian President Vladimir Putin has given citizenship to the US whistleblower that published classified information about the surveillance programs of the US and UK intelligence agencies, the State Department spokesperson explained that Washington is "not aware of any change in his [Snowden's] American citizenship status," stressing that the only difference is "as a result of Russian citizenship he might now be conscripted to fight in the war in Ukraine."
