MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) Ex-CIA agent Edward Snowden still remains in a transit zone at Sheremetyevo airport, a unnamed diplomatic source told Itar-Tass on Thursday. "He is still there," the source confirmed.
Snowden who had earlier been a CIA technical expert, made public secret information about two secret programs undertaken by the U.S. National Security Agency aimed at the interception of information about telephone calls and Internet correspondence through the U.S. computer servers.
Snowden made his sensational spy revelations while staying in Hong Kong from where he left for Russia on June 23. On the following day Snowden was to take a flight to Cuba from the Russian transit zone, but he was never seen on board.
Snowden remains in the airport transit zone for twelve days.
