NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia and is allowed to enter the country’s territory.
“I have just handed over to him papers from the Russian Immigration Service. They are what he needs to leave the transit zone,” Snowden's legal representative Anatoly Kucherena told Interfax.
The whistleblower has been granted temporary political asylum in Russia, Rossiya 24 news channel reports.
Snowden has already left the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, an RT crew at the scene has confirmed.
This is Awesome! I admire Snowden and wish there were thousands more like him, who revealed the truth of how far the U.S. has gone Orwellian against the citizens and other countries of the world.
We should all embrace the truth and from there we can help change what is happening.
