Russia to give Snowden freedom of movement
An informed police source told reporters a special permit will be issued for the American intelligence leaker, stranded in a no-man’s-land in Moscow’s airport lounge, giving him freedom to travel.
The source said Snowden’s asylum plea would be considered even in the absence of any ID. Washington previously annulled the whistleblower’s US passport to.
The Russian immigration authority may take some five days to preview the request, although a deeper inquest will probably last up to three months, the source informed.
