Edward Snowden has no plans to leave Russia, might ask for citizenship: lawyer


MOSCOW: The US whistleblower Edwar Snowden has no plans to leave Russia yet, a lawyer who is assisting the former NSA contractor said on Wednesday, adding that Russia has no legal basis to hand over Snowden to the US.

“Snowden says that he doesn’t want to leave Russia, at least, until he gets temporary asylum,” Anatoly Kucherena noted.

The lawyer also indicated that Snowden has not excluded the future possibility of “asking for Russian citizenship.”
