Russia, Crimea and how do Snowden and his supporters defend actions?

The recent events in Crimea and the Ukraine and Russia's indefensible actions to just invade their neighbor and grab their land and resources smacks of hypocrisy.  Putin has been railing against the US and its policies of Imperialism in its decision to invade Iraq; meanwhile aiding Syria with killing its people, and Iran with faux diplomatic efforts with the West.  Snowden was at the recent SXSW convention in Texas with the Constitution as the back drop transmitting on Skype from Russia with the help of Wiki leaks Julian Assange. Snowden in Russia, and Assange transmitting from the embassy of  Ecuador in London where he has lived for  three years hiding out from Swiss/ American justice.  Ironically, Comrade Snowden's lack of comments on Russia's actions, don't surprise or shock.  Unlike, in America; there is no freedom of the press, or free speech, nor human rights, not even privacy rights.  Snowden and Assange lack  the moral strength and convictions to say when Russia or any other nation is wrong.  Including, Russia's recent spying on the State Department's representative during the Ukraine uprising that over threw the President of Ukraine.  That's called SELF PRESERVATION; and I am not a hero but I just have a really good press agent, should be Snowden's new motto.
