    Sure he will, not because Putin is some champion of freedoms, lol. He will treat him better because it is in his best interest politically to do so in the never ending propaganda war between the nations. In the eyes of our government Snowden is a traitor (in my view the actual traitors are the people in the government that trample on our liberties) but to many others around the world he will hailed for standing up against American overreach. Of course Putin is guilty of doing worse to suppress freedoms within his own country but this is a propaganda war and Snowden is a useful tool.
