Reset: Kerry Calls Russia an ‘Authoritarian Country’

By Curtis Kalin | May 28, 2014 | 9:27am EDT

Secretary of State John Kerry called Russia an “authoritarian country” in an interview this morning.

Kerry’s primary topic was NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who Kerry called on to “man up” and return to the United States for prosecution.

“The bottom line is this is a man [Snowden] who has betrayed his country, who is sitting in Russia, an authoritarian country where he has taken refuge.”

Kerry’s strong language comes just five years after his predecessor, Hillary Clinton, famously “reset” relations with this suddenly “authoritarian” country.
