Snowden renews his residence permit in Russia

36

The well-known whistleblower of the American intelligence services, Edward Snowden, filed documents to extend his residence permit in Russia for another three years. He made this decision despite persistent rumors about his possible pardon by Donald Trump.


This is reported by Newsweek, citing Anatoly Kucherena, Snowden's lawyer.

The lawyer said that the American's residence permit expired on April 30, but was automatically extended until July 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the announced quarantine. Snowden promptly submitted documents for the extension of the residence permit, but they were accepted only after July 15, as soon as the restrictions were eased.

There are more and more supporters of Edward Snowden's pardon in the United States, including perhaps President Donald Trump himself. This is largely due to the fact that the actions of the employees of the National Security Agency, which he exposed, engaged in total surveillance of American and foreign citizens, were declared illegal by the decision of the United States Federal Court of Appeals last week.

In particular, US Congressman Matt Goetz is convinced of the need to justify Snowden, who, in his opinion, did the right thing:

If not for Snowden, it is possible that we would not have known today that our own government is engaged in activities that the Federal Court of Appeal found illegal.

      Yes, as soon as he recounts the Russian border ... Oh ... An accident! The Anglo-Saxons did not spare Princess Diana, for having contacted an Arab ... And then with the Russians, she will accidentally drown in the Hudson with a basin of cement on his feet! It’s here that they’ll be shocked with Navalny, they’re trying to poison the expired dichlorvos, but the Anglo-Saxons have it all well and good! Snowden, although he looks like Harry Potter, is friendly with his head laughing

        Snowden became Russian, got married here and is quite happy ..! And these traitors who live in Russia and shit on it openly are not in danger .. Eh Russia!
        And Snowden showed the whole world who the USA and other financial institutions are and what they do .. Edik Well done, that's exactly what he went against the system! Alas, all countries handed him over, but only Russia took the courage to hide him from the electric chair in the USA!
        And his help was invaluable ..

          he is an American and will never become a Russian. At best, he will be able to adapt at the household level. He has a business outside the Russian Federation

        Yes, there is a very dark story with the death of DI. I was once interested in this topic specifically. The driver there was not an ordinary one (a fan of circuit car races and their participant in the past). Having weighed all the pros and cons, I came to the conclusion that the princess was killed (this is my personal opinion).
        I will not develop this topic here, but in general, I agree with you.

          I reread what I wrote.
          Correctly read: "the princess was executed."
          That will be true.

      Oh, it was necessary to give Assange a watered asylum in due time, then he would live and work here, calmly, bringing all this evil spirits to clean water.
      And Snowden is a man of the world, and the Anlo-Saxons do not like such. Moreover, they do not forget that their vile deeds are made public.

      I believe that Snowden should be given from the state budget 1,5-2 thousand dollars of monthly allowance. He's worth it.

    Fair man.
    It is much safer for him here, let him live in Russia.

    His revelations can still surprise our overseas "friends". He obviously didn't tell everything!

      True, even if there is a pardon, he will be killed anyway, it will be like an accident.

      The most interesting thing is that maybe he didn’t know anything new, so our comrades will tell him what to publish and give him information. He is now such a mouthpiece of the truth about the Americans that they will immediately believe him. Very convenient for ours.

      hi
      Sure. Snowden, Assange and all the lesser known in Russia. In a science city (away from the borders) with all conditions. The country's future is created at the desk. So send our shkolota (the best) to these guys.
      It's amazing why our captains didn't bother with this. Given their possibilities ... Yes, on “Time. Two!".

      Assange needs to be cut out. I support.

          Great idea. If you do this, "It" will start firing once every six months.
          Want a "digital world?" No problem. All the best "heads" in Russia. Moreover, our new generation is learning from them :)

          This will really be a thrill.
          A country with its own software and its own hardware.

          It remains to wish us all good luck. Thought, it is material :)

        And he will also publicly denounce communism, socialism, the Russian people, our system, our policy, etc. etc., and EVERYTHING that is connected with these concepts - well, they will give it, in the easy years 70-80. wink

          It seems that if he admits publicly - that Putin personally directed him, he may get into the witness protection program ... although there is a risk that they will be trampled by a “newcomer”, well, about 50/50! hi

    The factology is somehow confused. Visas, registrations, residence permits were automatically extended from March 15 to September 15, 2020.The residence permit is given for 5 years, from November 1, 2019, foreign citizens began to issue an unlimited residence permit. Is Snowden a native speaker of Russian? Foreign citizens recognized as native speakers of the Russian language were issued a residence permit for three years. request

    If Snowden wants to return to the United States, it will not be under this power, most likely never, or if only he will die at home.
