NOVO-OGAREVO, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Migration Service (FMS) did not give a response yet to a request from former CIA employee Edward Snowden for temporary asylum in Russia, Head of the Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
He urged not to give a too high attention to this situation. “This case is not exclusive, we have more than 1,000 similar cases,” Romodanovsky said. He also asked not to make the Federal Migration Service hurry, as FMS has three months to consider this request under the law.
