Subtracting all the hideous quotes from Beltway types, there's some data here:
Speaking on Echo of Moscow radio, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov addressed comments made earlier Sunday by Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, who said Snowden is "in the care of the Russian authorities" and seemed to downplay the idea that Snowden would wind up in Ecuador, as he is apparently seeking to do.
“Since this is not our issue, I don’t know what the options for the development of the situation can be, which legal and nonlegal aspects this topic involves,” Peskov added. “The only thing we do is register a very wide range of views on the issue expressed by various experts and human rights activists.” ....
Summing up Snowden's dilemma, [Ecuador President] Correa said: “He doesn't have a passport. I don't know the Russian laws, I don't know if he can leave the airport, but I understand that he can't. At this moment he's under the care of the Russian authorities. If he arrives at an Ecuadorean embassy, we'll analyze his request for asylum.” ...
“Snowden is still residing in a technical room of the transit zone,” said a [Russian] Foreign Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “The problem is he doesn’t possess valid documents to buy tickets for any flight anywhere or even cross the border into Russia.”
And now for the speculation, which the LA Times buries in the last paragraph:
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who praised Snowden as “a brave youth” and offered to grant him asylum, is scheduled to arrive in Moscow on Monday for a two-day official visit. There has been speculation that Maduro might offer to take Snowden back to Venezuela on his official jet.
NOTE Does anyone know the definition of "embassy" under international law? For example, would a embassy car be part of any embassy, like a diplomatic bag? How about the presence of an ambassador?
UPDATE And then there's this from Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty so ick:
Ecuadorean President Sends Regards To U.S. Fugitive Snowden
Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa has sent his regards to fugitive former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, telling him to "keep his spirits high."
When I read the headline, I couldn't help but think "the Lannisters send their regards," but I wonder if the text has anything to do with the approach of the Venezuelans.
