MOSCOW, July 15 (RAPSI) - The Federal Migration Service of Russia (FMS) has not yet received a request for asylum from ex-CIA employee Edward Snowden, the service's spokesperson Zalina Kornilova told RIA Novosti.

Last Friday, at a meeting with human rights activists in the transit area of the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, Snowden announced his intention to apply for political asylum in Russia and to comply with the conditions, including not inflicting any harm on the United States. According to several activists present at the meeting, Snowden has already filed his application. Requests for political asylum fall within the competence of the migration service.

"The Federal Migration Service has not yet received an application from Edward Snowden," Kornilova said.

Snowden, who leaked details of the US government surveillance programs aimed at US citizens and foreigners, fled the country and arrived in Moscow on June 23. He has since remained in the Sheremetyevo transit area, looking for a country that is prepared to grant him asylum.
