MOSCOW, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - An Aeroflot plane that will take former CIA agent Edward Snowden to Cuba will fly through the area of responsibility of New York’s dispatchers, a source familiar with circumstances of the case told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Aeroflot’s flight routes cross the Atlantic Ocean in the area of Newfoundland and then pass around the U.S. coast several kilometers off New York,” the source said. “This is the area of responsibility of the U.S. air traffic control service.”
The source did not rule out that U.S. dispatchers may take a non-standard decision as the U.S. authorities search for the ways to bring Snowden back to the United States for criminal persecution.
