Yes, it says he doesn't want to wind up in a US prison. Russia is big enough and independent enough to tell the US to buzz off, if it isn't in the mood to send him back here to be tried and convicted. Why in the world would you think it has anything to do with how much personal freedom is allowed in Russia? I just don't understand the reasoning at all.
