MOSCOW, October 10 (Itar-Tass) - Edward Snowden's father who arrived in Russia by air on Thursday is to meet his son later in the day,” but he has many kilometers to travel yet before the two will meet,” Anatoly Kucherena, a lawyer for the ex-CIA worker Edward Snowden, told Itar-Tass.
Lon Snowden arrived in Russia on the lawyer's personal invitation, Kucherena said. He arrived for a few days. Lon Snowden is in Russia for the first time, and the lawyer prepared “an itinerary” for the elder Snowden to enable him to meet his son and learn more about Russia.
After Lon Snowden's visit to Russia other relatives of Edward Snowden might in a short while visit him in Russia, Kucherena said.
"But we would not like to do again what we did on Thursday when we had to change three cars after we had walked out of Sheremetyevo airport to escape pursuit," Kucherena said. "Actually, we were followed by five cars, which was very unpleasant indeed,” he stressed.
Earlier, Lon Snowden said in an interview with Rossiya-24 television that he did not know where his son was staying.
The 30- year old Edward Snowden is an American computer specialist and a former CIA and NSA employee who intentionally disclosed classified details of several top-secret United States and British government mass surveillance programs to the press.
He was granted temporary asylum in Russia after he had stayed at Sheremetyevo transit zone for more than a month.
