So Snowden is getting temporary asylum in Russia. I support Snowden, and I consider his actions to actually be quite patriotic, but it is amazing how the Putin regime has manged to spin this whole situation for their own propaganda purposes. For Snowden, it's a chance to further evade capture, but from the perspective of the Russian government, it is merely an opportunity for a good propaganda ploy. Putin is one of the worst offenders in the persecution of political dissidents and whistle blowers; just look up Sergei Magnitsky for a good recent example of this.
