NSA Leaker To Stay In Moscow Airport For Now

MOSCOW (July 24, 2013)--National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden’s asylum status has not been resolved and Snowden will remain at Moscow’s airport for the time being, a lawyer said Wednesday.

Anatoly Kucherena, who was visiting the American Wednesday at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, said migration officials are still looking at the asylum request and that this process had been drawn out.

Kucherena said that Snowden is staying in the transit zone "for now" and "intends to stay in Russia, study Russian culture."

The lawyer did not immediately comment on a Russian news report that said Snowden had received a document earlier Wednesday allowing him to enter Russia from the airport.
