Former CIA employee Edward Snowden may leave the tranzit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport within the next few hours, the Voice of Russia correspondent reports.
UPDATE: Federal migration service has not issued the documents allowing Edward Snowden to leave the airport yet, there was a misinformation today in the media, said Kucherena.
"Any move that would allow Mr. Snowden to depart the airport would be deeply disappointing," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters, adding that US Secretary of State John Kerry had telephoned Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
