MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden, granted a year's temporary asylum in Russia, has not ruled out seeking Russian citizenship, his lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Asked whether the fugitive Snowden, former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency, would file a request to the Federal Migration Service, Kucherena said “not yet”.
He said the American would continue living in Russia, where he had now found a job. “The name of the employer has not been disclosed,” Kucherena said. Beyond Snowden's father's journey to Russia, the lawyer noted that no other relatives had announced plans to visit.
