Russia NSA Surveillance Snowden

In this image taken from Associated Press Television, Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena holds a temporary document that allows Edward Snowden to cross the border into Russia at Sheremetyevo airport outside Moscow on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013. Snowden, who leaked secrets from the National Security Agency, has received asylum in Russia for one year and left the transit zone of Moscow's airport, his lawyer said Thursday. Kucherena said after meeting with the fugitive at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, where he was stuck since his arrival from Hong Kong on June 23, that he handed him the papers proving his status. Kucherena said that Snowden's whereabouts will be kept secret for security reasons. (AP Photo/APTN)
