MOSCOW, July 6 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuela would be the best asylum for former CIA officer Edward Snowden, State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Alexei Pushkov said.

“Asylum for Snowden in Venezuela would be the best solution,” Pushkov wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday, July 6. “That country is in acute conflict with the United States and this can’t make things worse.”

“In fact, he can’t live at Sheremetyevo [Airport in Moscow],” he added.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro offered “humanitarian asylum” to Snowden in order “to protect him from prosecution of the world’s most powerful governments.”

Maduro made the offer on Friday, July 5, addressing a military parade marking the 202nd anniversary of the country’s independence.

In his opinion, Snowden “did nothing but say the truth” and got prosecuted “by the most powerful empire in the world”.
