“No comment,” the FMS press service told Interfax on Thursday, July 31.
FMS chief Konstantin Romodanovsky said on July 23 that the FMS
treated any information concerning the extension of Snowden’s status in
Russia as confidential and would not disclose it.
Snowden fled the U.S. for Hong Kong in May 2013, where he published
information on U.S. special services’ Internet surveillance operations
and the tapping of telephone conversations in various countries.
