Edward Snowden fled the US after leaking secret files that revealed domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by NSA
Snowden, 39, a former US intelligence contractor, has been living in Russia since 2013. This to escape prosecution in the US after leaking secret files, published by the Guardia. They revealed vast domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by the US National Security Agency.
In 2020, Snowden said that he and his then-pregnant wife were applying for Russian citizenship. This in order not to be separated from their future son in an era of pandemics and closed borders. Russia granted him permanent residency rights the same year, paving the way for him to obtain Russian citizenship.
