MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - Fugitive former agent of the CIA Edward Snowden, who blew the gaffe about the U.S. secret program for large-scale snooping, remains in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport and he did not cross the Russian border formally, President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.
He recalled that Snowden had filed a formal request to stay in Russia but then revoked it after learning about Putin’s condition for his stay, which is to give up any activity against the U.S.
Peskov reiterated that the Russian secret services had never contracted Snowden and the man was not their agent.
As he spoke about the situation on the whole, he said: “Russia has never given up anyone to others. It isn’t doing this right now either and will never do it in the future.”
