Snowden's Father Says Putin Will Not 'Cave' in Wake of Canceled Meeting With Obama

Says he admires the Russian president's strength and courage


Edward Snowden's father does not believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin will "cave" after President Barack Obama canceled a meeting with him.

"These games of 'Well, I'm not going to go to this meeting,' or 'I'm not going to go to that meeting,' … I do not believe that President Vladimir Putin will cave to that," he said in a lengthy interview with Reuters.
