Russia Breaking News: Russia Has Received No Asylum Request From Snowden


Senior Kremlin officials said Russia's Federal Migration Service had not yet received a formal appeal for asylum from Edward J. Snowden, the former intelligence contractor.

President Barack Obama raised U.S. concerns directly with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Moscow's handling of former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, but there was no sign of a breakthrough on Washington's demand that Russia expel him.

Two prominent Russian human rights officials say they plan to meet with Edward Snowden, the leaker of U.S. National Security Agency secrets, after receiving an invitation calling them to Moscow's Sheremetyevo international airport.
