Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden likes Russia quite a bit. In fact, Snowden likes Russia so much that his lawyer Anatoly Kucherna filed for an extended stay at Moscow’s Federal Migration Service, according to The New York Times.
“We have submitted documents for extending his stay in Russia,” Kucherna is quoted as saying.
Snowden is running out of time — his temporary asylum expires on Aug. 1. According to Russia Beyond The Headlines, Snowden is acclimating to Russian society and is uncertain how long he will stay in the country.
