Lon Snowden has arrived in Moscow in hopes that he will be able to see his fugitive son Edward Snowden, who has been granted temporary asylum in Russia.
Snowden says he has not been in direct contact with his son, and speaking to reporters outside Moscow airport said, “I am not sure my son will be returning to the U.S. again. That’s his decision, he is an adult.” He added that he felt “extreme gratitude” that his son is “safe and free” in Russia.
Edward Snowden, who is wanted for espionage charges in the U.S., was granted temporary asylum in Russia after spending five weeks holed up in Moscow airport. His asylum can be extended annually, and both Russian authorities and Anatoly Kucherena, the Russian lawyer appointed to Snowden, have not revealed his location.
