Edward Snowden, formerly an employee of the US National Security Agency, who was granted political asylum in Russia, said he did not feel safe in the country.
During a video conference with the University of Innsbruck, Snowden said that he had doubts whether he would be safe in Russia.
"As for my future in Russia, I cannot say that I am safe. But does it matter? If I wanted to live in safety, I would be in Hawaii making a lot of money and keeping track of everyone," he said.
Snowden also assured the audience that he had never worked for the Russian government. "I have criticised them, I have criticised the president [of Russia], and their elections process, and I will continue doing it," he added, adding that his priority is to take care of US citizens, because he is an American in the first place.
