MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Migration Service has not received yet an appeal for political refuge in Russia from Edward Snowden, a source from the Russian Federal Migration Service which deals with such cases, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
No appeal from Mr. Snowden has been received, it said.
Earlier it has been reported that Snowden has sent applications for political asylum to authorities of more than 20 countries, according to WikiLeaks. Applications for political asylum were sent to a number of countries, including Russia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, Germany, India, Ireland, Spain, Italy, China, Cuba, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Poland, Finland, France and Switzerland.
To some countries, in particular Iceland and Ecuador, applications were sent more than once.
Currently, Snowden is still in the Sheremetyevo transit zone.
