    Tanya Lokshina of Human Rights Watch is being interviewed on Russia TV.

    She said Snowden had said he wanted the US to succeed.

    Would he stop his activities? There was nothing to stop, because he felt he was not harming the US, she said.

    So now he decides to mess with Putin? It's clear that Putin wants Snowden to stop leaking U.S. secrets. It's not clear that Snowden is willing to do that.
