MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - The granting of an asylum to ex-CIA employee Edward Snowden will “positively affect Russia’s image,” head of the International Affairs Committee of the State Duma (lower house of RF parliament) Alexei Pushkov believes.
“It will show that Russia is involved in the protection of human rights at international level,” the parliamentarian wrote on his Twitter microblog.
On Tuesday, the ex-CIA employee submitted to the migration service documents for temporary asylum.
