24 Nov 2014 – Edward Snowden has been awarded Stuttgart Peace Prize 2014, established by citizens’ initiative Die AnStifter, RIA Novosti said.

The former US intelligence contractor could not attend the ceremony. He sent a message via video to the organizers.

“If we are to live in a liberal society, we must stand and defend liberal values,” the whistleblower said.

In August, Snowden’s asylum period in Russia was extended for three years.
