GOGLAND ISLAND, Russia, July 15 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday he saw signs that Edward Snowden, the former U.S. 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 U.S. authorities, also said Snowden's situation remained unresolved after Washington had blocked further movements for him. (Reporting by Alexei Anishchuk; Writing by Gabriela Baczynska; Editing by Douglas Busvine)
