"......First published April 17th 2014, 1:20 pm
NSA leaker Edward Snowden put a direct question to Vladimir Putin during a live televised question-and-answer session Thursday, asking Russia's president about Moscow's use of mass surveillance on its citizens.Speaking via a video link, Snowden asked: "I've seen little public discussion of Russia's own involvement in the policies of mass surveillance, so I'd like to ask you: Does Russia intercept, store or analyze, in any way, the communications of millions of individuals?"... Putin replied by stating Russia did not carry out mass surveillance on its population, and that its intelligence operations were strictly regulated by court orders."
From Tiscali news , but I wasn't able to find the original even within the source, the site of LaPresse:
Russia Duma approves bill with restrictions on bloggers
Moscow (Russia), April 23 (LaPresse) - The Russian State Duma has approved a controversial bill that strengthens controls on the internet, forcing the authors of popular blogs, those with more than three thousand hits per day, to register with the agency for consumer rights Rospotrebnadzor . This was reported on its website the broadcaster Russia Today, pointing out that the measure was finally approved yesterday. The measure introduces for the first time in Russian law the definition of 'bloggers' and obliges the authors to sign the items with their real names. Bloggers will also be forbidden to publish information of a terrorist or extremist, promote pornography or violence, and use foul language. For people who do not respect the law have been provided for fines of between 10 thousand and 30 thousand rubles.

Edited one hour later the publication (sorry too much busy to complete the post); here you have a good source, the Moscow Times and please, confront the day of the above news reporting the famous question of Snowden to Putin with the practically contemporary vote at the Duma to further suppress Freedom of Expression in Putin's Russia:
"...State Duma Approves Bill Classifying Bloggers as Mass Media
An amendment to an anti-terrorism bill passed by the State Duma will allow Russian bloggers to be prosecuted for publishing content that is deemed a threat to national security.

etc. etc., continue on the page:
Yes, this is the Russia which welcomed Snowden. You are warned.
And now some ruminations of mines, four points:
C.I.A. - 1...I think everything has been finally agreed in the briefing between Putin and pope Francis SJ on 25th November 2014.... Everything of course has been planned long time before.... I believe that four months ago the pope assured him to put at his service the C.I.A., headed by a former Jesuit student (Fordham University New York), a loyal papist, a certain John Brennan.... C.I.A. is openly acting in order to seem "against" but in the matter of reality satisfying the Kremlin's propaganda needs.... If we look the global picture we can now understand what really happened in the recent past, why C.I.A. delivered a Snowden to Putin as a gift. With a perfect timing in order to prepare the western public opinion and especially European one and moreover GERMAN one in to accept the incoming Russian annexation of Crimea?
C.I.A. - 2 .... Speaking the truth, Snowden's flight in the hands of KGB/FSB seems to be the alibi preventively created by C.I.A. the same in order to be not accused then (now) to be in agreement with the Russian intelligence, when it is in front of the eyes of everyone the monstruous surrender of the Obama administration in front of the Putin's Fascist Anschluss of Crimea and other Ukrainian regions, and the un-told but implicit and suggested story sounds about: "Snowden gave to Putin important CIA secrets compromising the USA administration which now must remain silent and paralyzed and those secrets information allegedly were warning Russia of a possible coupe in Ukraine backed by USA"..... Practically now Putin's FSB together with his Snowden are in the condition to invent every lie they want and it will be believed. And you can also immagine how Putin will be generous with Snowden if he will continue to collaborate...:

By SPIEGEL Staff.... Berlin has insisted it wants to scrutinize NSA spying in Germany. But actually inviting Edward Snowden to testify before a paraliamentary investigation is proving delicate. Some in Chancellor Merkel's party are now casting doubt on Snowden's suitability as a witness......."
"..... August 26, 2013 Codename 'Apalachee': How America Spies on Europe and the UN
President Obama promised that NSA surveillance activities were aimed exclusively at preventing terrorist attacks. But secret documents from the intelligence agency show that the Americans spy on Europe, the UN and other countries."
C.I.A. - 3 .... Usual politics of infiltration and of fifth columns in USA and of underground alliance with the Kremlin's interests, but they have a well defined target in the Old Continent, the consolidation of the Oder-Neisse borders, by Cardinal Stefan Wyszinski explained as the "final goal of the Counter Reformation" or, in geo-political terminology: European Union..... Evidently the money paid by the Catholic Confederates of South Europe through the national debts ("economical European recession") are not sufficient to keep asleep the German awareness of the old German lost territories. A geo-politcal geometry of forces has to be put in motion by Borgo Santo Spirito.... Now Germany, after the recent case of the espionage by the American NSA/CIA, want it or not, cannot anymore rely on the White House administration and therefore she is now without the only powerful ally which could have helped in to build a solid opposition to the Putin's expansionism. Putin's Russia, pressing like a crazy bear over the entire Eastern Europe, is even more burying the German borders inside the religious Golden Cage of E.U., built for Germany, paid by the South Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Europeans and mastered by the Vatican.... You have to admit it: a Jesuit masterwork of geo-politic and geo-economy serving geo-religious goals at his best.... In fact no one openly and loudly, at an high political or diplomatic level, labelled the annexation of Putin as to be the same of the Hitler's Sudeten and Austrian annexation, or at least the media I can access brought to me no news about. Did they to you?
Edited one hour later: sorry, I forgot the 4th point, C.I.A. - 4, but it is essentially the same argument I dealt in "YOU ARE NEXT" post: http://control-avles-blogs.blogspot.it/2014/04/you-are-next.html
Well these were the points. I add now: is now Germany entrapped inside the psychological trick, or: induced to hope to have Koenisberg back if Berlin will show to Putin his support for the quartering of Ukraine?... It all depends on how deep the process of Catholicization of Germany and the transformation of her in a Great Catholic Bavaria will occur, of course all that not to restore old Protestant Eastern Prussia, only to give 'Kaliningrad' back to the Teutonic order...
