MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - Former CIA technical contractor Edward Snowden, who gave an application for granting temporary asylum in Russia, is not planning to leave the country, lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Itar-Tass.

“Snowden says he does not want to leave Russia until he is granted temporary asylum,” Kucherena said.

Snowden does not rule out that he “will ask for Russian citizenship in the future”, the lawyer said.

At the same time, Kucherena said the former CIA technical contractor did not rule out that he would leave Russia. “He’d like to meet the leaders of the countries that are ready to accept them. But now he is not going to leave Russia,” the Russian lawyer added.
