On Friday, the DNI published a report on the issues of hiring and retention of minorities, women, and persons with disabilities in country's intelligence community.
"New: US spy agencies release workforce demographics. It's not great for women & minorities… US spy agencies give fewer awards to minorities. High-dollar awards are saved for non-minorities," Snowden said on his Twitter account.
According to the report, the total number of minorities in all the intelligence structures is 24.6 percent, which is less than their share in country's population, which consists of 37.5 percent. But even taking into account this fact, the minorities receive only some 22 percent of monetary awards.
In 2013, Snowden started making revelations about widespread US global surveillance. In the United States, he faces up to 30 years in prison on charges of espionage and theft of government property. Snowden, currently in Russia, repeatedly said he would return to the United States if Washington guaranteed him a fair trial.
