Russia Allows Snowden ‘To Leave Moscow Airport’


MOSCOW (AFP) – Russia’s migration service has provided fugitive U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden with a document that allows him to leave the Moscow airport transit zone where he has been holed up for the last month, the RIA Novosti news agency said Wednesday.

The document confirms that his application for asylum is being considered but allows Snowden to cross the Russian border so long as border guards do not object, it said. The Interfax news agency said Snowden could leave the airport in the “next hours”.

    Since he is unlikely to ever set foot on American soil again (fearing arrest), he has already been found guilty and sentenced to a lifetime of exile.

      Well what do you expect for a man who openly betrayed his own country? Flowers?

        He didn’t betray his country… He had the guts to let his country know how the federal government is illegally spying on Americans. He gained nothing and is paying a heavy price for exposing criminal behavior that effects every American. If you disagree with the constitution and its protection to citizen maybe you be more comfortable in China !!!
