Edward Snowden plans to settle and get a job in Russia
Snowden’s lawyer says he’s “planning to arrange his life” in Russia.
Edward Snowden, the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor who blew the whistle on its massive domestic and international surveillance programs last month plans to settle and work in Russia, RT reported.
Snowden has been stranded in Moscow’s airport for the past month trying to secure asylum from countries around the world. Last week he applied for temporary asylum in Russia. Today, his lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, told RT that if his asylum plea in Russia is denied he will battle in court for the right to remain in the country.
“He’s planning to arrange his life here. He plans to get a job. And, I think, that all his further decisions will be made considering the situation he found himself in,” Kucherena said.
