Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has filed papers asking Russian authorities to extend his asylum for another year, his lawyer said Wednesday.
« The procedure is very simple if a citizen of any country would like to stay and live in Russia, » lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told the Russian-based news service RT. « In this case we are talking about Snowden, so we have fulfilled the procedure to receive temporary asylum. »
