A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman has said Edward Snowden can stay in Russia for 2 more years.

Apparently there's no extradition treaty between the U.S. and Russia.

So what will Trump do with the Snowden issue ?

Edward Snowden Allowed to Stay in Russia for a Couple More Years, Has Right to Become Russian Citizen

Edward Snowden, a whistleblower who disclosed the extent of NSA’s surveillance, can stay in Russia for a few more years, it has been revealed.

According to The Guardian, an official confirmed that Russia extended Snowden’s stay in the country. The NSA contractor will get to spend two more years in Russia and won’t be extradited to the United States even if the relationship between the two countries improve now that Mr. Trump moves into the White House.

A foreign ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, wrote on her Facebook account a post confirming the news as a response to a suggestion from Michael Morell, the former acting CIA director, that Vladimir Putin might hand over Snowden to the US, despite there being no extradition treaty between the two countries.
