Even in cold and kleptocratic Russia, living with the knowledge that his home government would like to charge him with violating the Espionage Act, Edward Snowden decided to send a little Valentine's Day tweet.
It was an unusually candid move for a man who normally tweets about mass surveillance and government secrets. Though, he did share a similar love message with his followers in December.
Snowden lives in Moscow with his longtime girlfriend Lindsay Mills, with whom he lived with in Hawaii before he leaked information about the United States' massive surveillance operations to various media outlets.
The 2014 documentary about Snowden's revelations, Citizen Four, revealed that Mills had moved to Moscow to live with him. When the movie won the Oscar for best documentary in 2015, she was on stage in Los Angeles, one of several people there to accept it.
