The Guardian speak to world-famous whistleblower Edward Snowden about his life in Russia and living in exile.
The ex-CIA agent made international news after he revealed classified documents that showed the extent of the US government’s mass surveillance program.

He reveals how his wife found it particularly tough when he had to leave the US. It’s an eye-opening interview that shows us what it’s like to be one of the world’s most wanted men.
