GOGLAND ISLAND, Russia(Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday he saw signs that Edward Snowden, the former US spy agency contractor turned fugitive leaker, was shifting towards stopping "political activity" directed against the United States.

Putin, who has previously refused to handle Snowden over to the US authorities, also said Snowden's situation remained unresolved after Washington had blocked further movements for him.
