MOSCOW, July 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Border Service has not received the documents from the Federal Migration Service (FMS), which will permit former CIA employee Edward Snowden to cross the border, leaving the transit zone of the Sheremetyevo airport.
“According to the reports at this moment of time, the Federal Migration Service has not transmitted the documents in the Russian Border Service for passing Snowden,” sources in the law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
According to the source, as soon as this document is produced, Snowden will be able to cross the border.
A source in the security service of the Sheremetyevo airport told Itar-Tass that Snowden does not have a certificate at his disposal to permit him to stay in Russia. “Snowden is staying in the transit zone, because he does not have a document, which permits him to cross the border,” the sources said.
However, lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, who is consulting Snowden, arrived at the Sheremetyevo airport, he will pass through the service entrance and will meet with Snowden, head of the Sheremetyevo press service Anna Zakharenkova said.
