Lawyer optimistic about Edward Snowden’s future in Russia

Edward Snowden the NSA whistleblower, is to remain in limbo at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport a while longer after the Russian Federal Migration Service failed to process his documents on time, suggesting that Mr Snowden’s entry to Russia may be more difficult than expected.
Mr Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said the whistleblower’s entry into Russia was delayed only because of the complexity of Mr Snowden’s asylum request. “He has not been refused [entry],” Mr Kucherena said. “The current situation is not standard for Russia. We have come to the conclusion that we’ll wait a while longer. We hope that the issue will be decided in the coming days,” he said. According to its website, the migration office takes up to one week to decide whether it will allow a foreign asylum-seeker to enter Russian territory. After that, the service takes up to three months to decide whether it will actually grant the individual asylum.

But he risked controversy by suggesting that his ministers should now fan out across the globe to spread gay marriage around the world. ‘I’m personally proud of this,’ he said. ‘I think it’s a really good step. I’ve told the Bill team I’m now going to reassign them because, of course, all over the world people would have been watching this and we’ve set something of an example of how to pass good legislation in good time. ‘Many countries are going to want to copy this. I talk about how we’ve got to export more, so I’m going to export the Bill team.  'I think they can take it around the world.’ Gay marriage was passed…
