Snowden a 'strange guy' set for tough life: Putin

Moscow - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, who received asylum in Russia, is a “strange guy” who condemned himself to a difficult fate.

“You know, I sometimes thought about him, he is a strange guy,” ex-KGB spy Putin said in an interview with state-run Channel One television.

“How is he going to build his life? In effect, he condemned himself to a rather difficult life. I do not have the faintest idea about what he will do next,” Putin said.

“Well, it's clear we will not give him up, he can feel safe here. But what's next?” Putin said, suggesting that Washington, which wants to put him on trial, may in time reconsider its stance.

“And maybe some compromises will be found in this case.”

But asked what would he do with the leaker were he a Russian national, Putin said he would do everything to make sure he is “held responsible in strict accordance with Russian law.”

Putin said while US special services consider Snowden a traitor “he is someone with a completely different frame of mind and considers himself to be a fighter for human rights.”
