‘Snowden has place to live in Putin’s land’

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden has determined where he will live in Russia, but is  still figuring out what he will do during his stay, his Russian lawyer said on Friday. Snowden can now remain in Russia for at least a year as he evades charges of espionage in the United States.
Snowden ‘is in a safe place,’ but the location will remain secret out of concerns for his security, his lawyer, Anatoly  Kucherena, told Russian news agencies.

Kucherena said Snowden, an NSA systems analyst who revealed himself as the source of reports in The Guardian newspaper of a vast surveillance program by the National Security Agency, needs time after his ordeal at the airport to figure out  what to do next.
‘As soon as he decides what he will do, I hope he will announce it himself,’ the ITAR-Tass news agency quoted the lawyer as saying. Kucherena said he expects Snowden to speak to journalists in the near future.
