MOSCOW, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - Snowden did not provide any materials to media while in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, lawyer Anatoly Kucherena who represents the interests of fugitive leaker Edward Snowden said on Thursday.
He said he had discussed with the former CIA employee this issue, in particular recent publications in the Guardian. “Staying at Sheremetyevo airport he did not provide any documents (to media),” Kucherena pledged, explaining that the materials published in the British newspaper “are documents he (Snowden) provided back in Hong Kong”.
On Wednesday the online edition of the Guardian published new details about the activity of the National Security Agency (NSA), in particular as concerns a top secret program called X-Keyscore, which “allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals”.
Since June 23, Snowden was in the transit zone of Shermetyevo Airport in Moscow, where he had arrived from Hong Kong. He asked for temporary asylum in Russia fearing punishment in the United States. He agreed to comply with the demand of the Russian president - stop the activity harming the US. Earlier on Thursday, Snowden was granted temporary asylum in Russia for the period of up to one year.
