    Lawyer: Snowden hopes to leave Moscow airport by Wednesday

    Former CIA contractor and self-declared leaker Edward Snowden hopes to end his month-long stay in a Moscow airport and move to the city's downtown by Wednesday, his Russian lawyer told Reuters on Monday.Attorney Anatoly Kucherena told the news agency that Snowden felt it was too dangerous to leave Russia for Latin America because of U.S. efforts to bring him home to face charges for allegedly leaking classified details about American intelligence gathering efforts.
    "He should get this certificate (allowing him to leave the airport) shortly," Kucherena, who helped Snowden apply for temporary asylum in Russia, told Reuters.

    But, based on the initial response to the request, he can pass through customs and exit the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport where he has been staying for nearly one month.

    According to Snowden's lawyer, he may be able to leave the international transit area of the airport, and may be able to go to downtown Moscow. He seems to be pushing Russia as his #1 hope for assalyum.

    He has been living in an airport.. I can't imagine what that is like. Does he sit in the bars all day and try talking to people?

    from what i understand the transit area is actually a secure hotel where you pretty much stay in your room.

    It seems that he is still in the Airport and his papers and request has not been accepted. Snowden remains stuck at Moscow airport
