espondence - Putin

At at visit to RT on Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed America's National Security Agency (NSA), and how it should be used for combatting terrorism: "I think everybody have known for a long time that intelligence services check correspondence of citizens in an era of combatting global terrorism. It is seen as necessary but, the question is how it is being controlled by society, because at least in Russia you cannot just tap into a phone conversation without a court warrant. In principle, this is the way it should be in a civilised society when fighting terrorism. Using whatever technical appliances and means possible, it should stay witihin the boundaries set by the law. If that is the case that's alright. If not then it is bad."

On Sunday Edwards Snowden wes revealed as NSA's whistleblower. Snowden released details of NSA's surveillance systems, Boundless Informant - a datamining tool mapping international surveillance information, and PRISM - a system said to collect data of United States and foreign citizens on a daily basis from phone providers and Internet based companies such as Facebook, Skype and Google.

The leaks focused on NSA surveillance and collection of metadata from technology companies such as Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple and telecommunication companies such as Verizon, one of the United States' biggest providers. A court order leaked on June 5 states that Verizon is required to pass on domestic and international telephone data to the NSA on a daily basis. Although excluding recordings of the calls, the originating and terminating phone numbers, time and duration of the calls and International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) numbers are recorded.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin visited a new television complex at Russia Today (RT) in Moscow on Tuesday.
