Snowden move creates international tension

Moscow – Edward Snowden’s move out of Moscow’s airport had many leaders in Washington uneasy about relations with Russia.

The former NSA contractor was granted asylum for a year, a move which the White House called, “A slap in the face.”

Now, a Fall summit between President Obama and Vladimir Putin may not happen.

Senator Chuck Schumer of New York even recommended relocating the upcoming G-20 Summit away from Russia.

“As long as Prime Minister Putin acts like a bully, we have only one choice: To stand up to him and show him that bullies pay a price,” the senator said.

Snowden could apply for Russian citizenship to continue to avoid espionage charges in the United States.
