The former analyst of the CIA, Edward Snowden, continues to pass his days in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, to which he arrived four weeks ago from Hong Kong. The U.S. former analyst still waits the processing of his application for asylum in Russia.
Snowden, the most wanted fugitive in the United States, responsible for disclosing a massive spy network, could be leaving the airport transit area of Moscow next week, so said his legal adviser, Anatoly Kucherena. The former analyst still waits for the Russian Federal Migration Service indicate their receipt of the request for temporary asylum in the country.
Soon to have a month living in the transit area, from the June 23, Snowden never thought he would remain stuck in an airport, unable to fly to another destination or crossing the Russian border, where he arrived through only safe route that allowed him to leave his country of origin.
Meanwhile, the Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin made it clear that Russia will not turn Snowden over under any circumstances, but could allow him to stay in the country if he disclaims any activity that affects the interests of the United States, a condition that prohibits him from disclosing any U.S. intelligence information.
