Former employee of the US special services Edward Snowden could spend weeks, even months, in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, Russia Federal Migration Service Public Chamber Chairman Vladimir Volokh told Interfax on Friday.
"He could stay in Sheremetyevo until his legal status is determined. The legislator has set the timeline of up to three months but the procedure could be extended for another three.
So he could be in the transit area for up to six months," Volokh said. Volokh is former Federal Migration Service deputy head.
