Truth be told, Lavrov is a liar. Former NSA security official said... 'presume every operational method Snowden had access to is compromised.' Encryption or not, I say... presume Chinese and Russian Intelligence possess every terabyte of data found on Snowden's lap-tops. Since, Snowden is a symbol for social justice in China or Russian human rights. I think Ambassador Kerry put it best... 'Snowden chose China and Russia in his flight from justice... because they are such powerful bastions for freedom and human rights'.
