Edward Snowden, who exposed the scale of secret surveillance operations by America's National Security Agency, has been granted Russian citizenship by President Vladimir Putin. The 39-year-old had fled the US and was given asylum in Russia after he leaked secret files in 2013. US authorities have sought his return ever since for a criminal trial on espionage charges.
