Snowden threatens new U.S. leaks, asks numerous countries for asylum. He has yet not applied for political asylum in Russia, confirms Federal Migration service


Moscow:  The Russian Federal Migration service has refuted media reports that claim that NSA leaker Edward Snowden applied for political asylum in Russia.

“There is no application with Federal Migration service from Snowden seeking asylum in Russia”, said officials of Federal Migration service on Monday evening.

Meanwhile, he broke his silence on Monday for the first time since fleeing to Moscow over a week ago, blasting the Obama administration and saying he remained free to make new disclosures about U.S. spying activity.

Snowden, who faces espionage charges in the United States and is believed to be staying in a transit area at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, surfaced with a letter to the Ecuadorean government and in a statement released through anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, which has taken up his cause.
