Where is Edward Snowden? Does he Support Russia’s Ukraine Invasion?
The silence of Snowden, who disclosed the US’ worldwide classified surveillance program in 2013, has perplexed geopolitical observers. The computer intelligence consultant had earlier worked for the CIA and also played a contractor role for the country’s National Security Agency.
In the current Russian invasion of Ukraine, Snowden has not publically spoken a word, apparently signaling his support for the invasion. It could also mean that his silence is mandatory for his survival in Russia.
Currently, Snowden holds the presidency of a California-based organization, Freedom of the Press Foundation, which tracks press freedom violations in the US.
The profile which Snowden holds makes him a key figure to keep fighting against atrocities and he has been a critic of the US government for many years over the smaller issues.
But since the war began, his digital presence seems to be quiet.
