This is where former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden is now believed to be located.
He fled to Hong Kong before making his way here, to this Moscow airport, in an attempt to evade U.S. authorities that have charged him with disclosing secret surveillance programs.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a visit to Finland, confirmed that Snowden was indeed in Moscow after his foreign minister had denied he was in Russia.
In his first public comments since Edward Snowden flew in on Sunday, Putin appeared to make light of the diplomatic uproar over the fugitive.
[Vladimir Putin, Russian President]:
"It's like shearing a piglet: there's a lot of squealing, but there's little wool"
The Russian leader said he hoped the affair would not affect his country's relationship with Washington, and said the sooner Snowden leaves Russia, the better.
Thirty-year-old Snowden's leaked information points to mass surveillance of emails and other communications by the U.S.-based National Security Agency.
Anti-secrecy group Wikileaks say Snowden is headed for Ecuador where he may be granted asylum.

Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.
Jason Liosatos's second interview with Karen Hudes, former attorney and Senior Executive at The World Bank who was fired for exposing the terrible corruption. Karen is a great voice of integrity and helps us to understand what is happening in the financial world, and the corrupt, casino like situation that holds people and countries to ransom. We talk of the dangers we face if we continue to ignore, and hence perpetuate our corrupted system which threatens to bring humanity to its knees if it continues as it is. Karen’s exposure of the corruption is like a surgical laser beam. Karen reminds us that we have inherited legal structures that must be used to serve the people, and not be ignored and abused by the government and financial institutions.
Karen talks about the Gold and Paper money situation, and how Germany was refused its Gold held by the US. I ask Karen about the Brazil uprisings, she explains that they could affect the US dollar, with Brazil being in the BRICS. We talk about ethical compromises and the diagnosis of the corrupted system being part of the cure, as it is only once a disease in a body is recognised and diagnosed is there a better chance of it being cured. Karen elaborates about The World Banks refusal to cooperate with the accountability inquiry, and how she was shadowed by Allied Barton Security. We also talk about whistle blower Edward Snowden, and the new epoch of consciousness and conscience we are entering, the emergency we face, and how we must all become the midwives of a new system based on truth and integrity, and how we must be very careful and skilled in the way we direct our consciousness and conscience revolution now taking place globally, in order that it liberates us, and not further enslave us. www.jasonliosatos.com
6/26/13 - Rush Limbaugh gave a calm, reasoned response to the Supreme Court's rulings on same-sex marriage on Wednesday. Wait, did we say "calm" and "reasoned?" What we mean is that he said the Court had contributed to the "disintegration of the United States." For a man who earlier said it was inevitable that gay marriage was going to spread across the country, Limbaugh sure seemed perturbed. He also said that the rulings represented "the visible fracturing by the judiciary of American culture and American tradition."
Funny--we thought gay people were a part of American culture and American tradition! Thankfully, Rush Limbaugh was there to set us straight.
On the Wednesday, June 26 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex continues his break down of the NSA surveillance grid, the persecution of former Booz Allen Hamilton analyst turned whistleblower Edward Snowden, and the Obama administration's war on investigative journalism. On today's show, Alex talks with Roman Yampolskiy, computer scientist at the University of Louisville, known for his work on behavioral biometrics, security of cyberworlds and artificial intelligence safety. Yampolskiy talks about the NSA spy grid, cyber security, the future of transhumanism, and control technology such as FDA-approved microchip RFID pills. Alex also talks with James Lane and Richard Grove about their new documentary, State of Mind: The Psychology of Control. The film delves into the abyss to expose the true agendas at work -- the science of control that has evolved over generations to keep us firmly in place so that dictators, power brokers and corporate puppeteers may profit from our ignorance and slavery.
Breaking: Sgt. Joe Biggs, Friend of Michael Hastings, Breaks Down The Odd Circumstances Just Before Michael Hasting's Death.
Scores of Chinese workers hold a co-owner of a U.S. factory hostage demanding severance packages.
A co-owner of a U.S.-based medical supplies company has been held hostage by workers at the Beijing plant after a pay dispute.
Chip Starnes, co-owner of Coral Springs, Florida-based Speciality Medical Supplies says he has been held captive since last Friday (June 21) night.
Dozens of workers are demanding severance packages identical to those offered 30 workers being laid-off from the company's plastics division.
42-year-old Starnes on Tuesday (June 25) described his experience so far, from a window in his own office.
[Chip Starnes, Co-Owner of Coral Springs]: (English)
"The first couple of days were very, very tough, nothing physical, more mental type of stuff going on, standing around you, anywhere you walk, 14, 16, 18 people following you, walk towards the gate, gate's completely blocked, all accesses, doors like right here, I can't get around that door. They have little shifts where they cover all the exits and entrance points."
Starnes says the dispute is the result of a miscommunication regarding the current payroll and he's unhappy about the local authorities' passiveness in handling the dispute.
Huairou District's head of the Rights and Interests Department of Union, Chu Lixiang, says the workers fear the plant is closing and Starnes will run away without paying severance.
Donald Trump, a man who has previously and may once again tout himself as a presidential candidate, believes that the American justice system is too slow and cumbersome to deal with whistleblowers like former NSA analyst Edward Snowden.
Labeling Snowden a "spy", Trump went on Fox News to advocate his immediate "execution".
In a vomit inducing interview with Fox and Friends, Trump, in his infinite wisdom, stated:
"You know, spies in the old days used to be executed."

From Doug Hagmann of Canada Free Press comes a chilling account of what's in store for us if we continue to ignore the bare-faced warnings of the central power base.. Here: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/... Some might be surprised to learn that the fate of America's economy has already been determined, verified and announced by the Obama White House. Yet, it has received scant attention from the corporate media. In 2011, economist Kyle Bass interviewed a senior member of the Obama administration about its planned solutions for fixing the US economy and trade deficit[ia]. Among the questions he asked was about U.S. exports and wages, but the question itself was not nearly as important as the response he received from this senior administration official. In fact, this single, seven word response clarifies everything, explains everything, and leaves little else to discuss: "We're just going to kill the dollar."
No wonder the vatican is the biggest wealth accumulator on the planet, their churches and preists etc pay NO TAX. This is unbelievable and to think they preach charity and "love thy neighbour" bs, yet 2/3 of their flock live on $2 a day . Also they bang on about love they neighbour yet are behind wars and are heavily invested and profit massively from making weapons that slaughter, and slaughter mostly innocent civilians. The hypocrisy is sickening and disgusting
The push to end the illegal rule of the West by a criminal cabal is escalating on multiple fronts as seen by a spate of incidents that seem, on the surface to be un-related. These incidents include the "murder" of a journalist in California, the ongoing NSA leaks scandal, the un-reported kidnapping of US ambassador to Syria Robert Ford, the murder of three free energy researchers last week and escalating riots.
It takes a former CIA asset to beat U.S. "intelligence" - more like intel deprivation. The story of Edward Snowden's escape from Hong Kong is textbook. This correspondent, at dim sum on Sunday, was alerted by a source; "Get ready for something big; he's leaving soon." That was about 12:30 pm Hong Kong time. In fact Snowden had already flown from Chek Lap Kok on SU 213 bound for Moscow at 11:00 am. But nobody knew it yet. Hong Kong was still digesting the front page of the South China Morning Postdisplaying yet more devastating evidence of U.S. cyber-spying of China.
By 2:00 pm there was a first, one-line alert from the South China Morning Post; he was on a plane to Moscow. I talked to RT in Moscow; they were stunned and sprang into action. Still total silence from Western corporate media. Then the Post confirmed the breaking news with more detail. Yet it took ages for Reuters to release its first short dispatch - as I had commented on my Facebook page. When the "international community" started to learn about it Snowden was already five hours into his flight.
Asia Times Online had also learned from another source close to Snowden's tight circle that a short stint in Hong Kong was always part of Plan A; he never intended to ask for political asylum in either Hong Kong or China. He was already focused on a "third country". What he did was to use Hong Kong as an ideal platform to unveil the inner workings of the Orwellian/Panopticon U.S. surveillance state.
Pepe is at the top of his game and, as is usually the case, one step ahead of everyone else when it comes to news items like this one. It was posted on the Asia Times website yesterday...and it should come as no surprise that it's also courtesy of Roy Stephens. It's also his final contribution to today's column.
An analyst says he believes that there is a great danger of the United States sparking a nuclear war with China or Russia over Syria, Iran or the Koreas yet thinks that no such threat exists by North Korea.
The comment comes as Russia has warned that a possible nuclear conflict on the Korean Peninsula would be far more destructive than the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.
"I would make no secret about it, we are worried about the escalation on the Korean Peninsula because we are neighbors," Russian President Vladimir Putin made the comment at a joint press conference with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday.
Putin noted that if something bad takes place "Chernobyl...may seem like a child's fairy tale. Is there such a threat or not? I think there is."
Press TV has conducted an interview with Mike Billington with the Asia Desk of the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR) weekly magazine to further discuss this issue.
What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.
Press TV: The major question of course that everyone is asking right now is how serious basically that threat of a nuclear war or even of a military attack launched on South Korea has actually become?
Billington: I don't think there is any danger of a nuclear war sparked by North Korea's nuclear attack. I think there is a great danger of a nuclear war sparked between the United States and China and the United States and Russia over either the Syrian and Iranian situation in the Middle East or over Korea in Asia.
What I would like to point out actually is that there has been a concerted effort in the Western press including New York Times today to falsify the warning coming from China about the danger of war in Asia. "north korea" china america defense nuclear "nuclear weapon" pressure launch "nuclear missile" japan "south korea" "missile test" russia border chinese tension concern weapon meltdown ww3 "world war 3" news conflict report media mainstream president korean chernobyl war agenda elite control future world u.s.

Xi Jinping the new head of China at the Boao forum yesterday said no country has the right to create regional or even global crisis for their own self-interest, their own selfish interest. That was reported in the New York Times this morning adding falsely the words in front of that speech that no Asian country should have the right to do this.
North Korea is ready to develop peaceful relations with world nations -- but only as a nuke state, the DPRK's nominal head of state Kim Yong-nam said on Sunday. This comes as the US, Japan, and China call for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
North Korea, which, despite tension, is getting ready to celebrate the birthday of the country's founder Kim Il-sung, said it was ready to conduct relations "based on the ideals of peace and sovereignty" and contribute to security and stability in Asia, and in the whole world "as a responsible nuclear-weapon state."
However, North Korea's Kim Yong-nam pointed out that not every nation is worthy their friendship, saying the country's "invincible defense forces" armed with strengthening "nuclear deterrence forces" will "unfold a total fight against the USA, acting in accordance with a wartime scenario."
Radio Commentary by Michael Savage Aired on June 25, 2013 - Modern cars can be hacked into and their brakes, accelerator, and other functions remotely controlled. Many believe this is what killed journalist Michael Hastings, who was going into hiding after writing about the NSA spying on Americans.
Cash is tight in China's financial markets and that may be bad news for an economy that's desperately trying to turn things around.
Hi I'm Karen Chang, and this is the RunList
The grim indication came last Friday, when China's Ministry of Finance missed its targeted sale of government bills by a third. Instead of getting people to buy the 15 billion yuan worth of bills it was offering, it only managed to sell around 9.5 billion.
That was the first failed auction for the Ministry of Finance in almost two years. Less than two weeks ago, on June 6th, state-run Agricultural Development Bank of China also had a failed auction, when it only managed to sell over half of the 20 billion yuan bills they were offering.
So why is this bad news?
Well, basically it means that there's not enough cash in the economy, or businesses, banks and other financial institutions aren't willing to give up the cash they're holding on to. This is happening because essentially, Chinese regulators want to reign in the money market. But, this is tricky when they also want the economy to grow.
You see, for the past several years, in trying to pump up the economy, China has been injecting all this cash into it. So local governments and businesses have been borrowing all this cash, but they haven't been able to pay it all back, so now we have a situation where debt has just skyrocketed to extremely high levels--almost 200% of GDP at the end of last year. [VE: SHOW 198% OF GDP].
But there are other underlying problems with the economy that cash can't solve, like falling demands from overseas and at home. So this means the money that's being borrowed to make things, isn't bringing back the expected returns - and this means the debt can't be repaid.
So what happens when loans default? Well, the banks that lent the money are going to start failing because you can't stay in business if you keep lending out cash and none of it comes back. Reuters has reported about rumors that several Chinese banks have recently failed to pay their debts from other banks, which could be pretty serious if the banks start failing as a result of this.
So, you have a growing debt problem on the one hand, and on the other hand, you have a slowing economy and a weaker demand on the other. This is quite a predicament and one that the has the Chinese government biting its nails. You see, the Communist Party needs the Chinese economy to keep growing to maintain its legitmacy, so if China's banks start defaulting there could be economic as well as political consequences.
So is the writing on the wall for China's economy or do you think China's new leaders will be able to turn things around?
