This FBI Director has sought for years to jail me on account of my political activities. If I can oppose his firing, so can you. https://t.co/zUp5kquy8q— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) 9 мая 2017 г.
In 2013, Snowden leaked classified documents pertaining to the mass surveillance practices carried out by US authorities around the globe. The following year, Snowden received a three-year residence permit to live in Russia, which was later extended until 2020.
