Russian laws do not limit the time for which former CIA employee Edward Snowden may stay at the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, and he bears no liability for the absence of documents, the Russian Justice Ministry said.
"Russian law does not stipulate the duration of time for which a foreign citizen may stay in the airport's transit zone or liability for staying for a long time in an airport's transit zone without documents," the ministry said in a statement forwarded to Interfax on Saturday in reply to a question as to how long Snowden may stay at the airport.
