Where will Edward Snowden finally end up? The Russians seem to think that Snowden should accept Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s offer of asylum, now that many other countries have hedged on accepted the U.S. government’s most sought after fugitive.
“Venezuela is waiting for an answer from Snowden. This, perhaps, is his last chance to receive political asylum.”-Alexie Pushkov, Russian parliament
According to a Fox News Latino report, if Snowden were to leave Russia for Venezuela, he would need for Venezuela to issue him travel documents and he would need to find a way to get there. The only direct commercial flight from Moscow goes to Havana, Cuba, and Snowden had booked a seat on this flight the day after arriving from Hong Kong, but failed to show up.
