Well, it worked. United States and Russian relations haven’t been this gelid since the Cold War.
(Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden was still in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, was free to leave and should do so as soon as possible.
Putin told a news conference during a visit to Finland that he hoped the affair would not affect relations with Washington, which wants Russia to send him to the United States, but indicated Moscow would not hand him over.
“We can only hand over foreign citizens to countries with which we have an appropriate international agreement on the extradition of criminals,” Putin said, adding that Snowden has committed no crime in Russia.
Wait! This was supposed to work.
Um, and Mr. President? The ‘dip’ in diplomacy isn’t supposed to be literal.
