While Edward Snowden may never again be able to find work in America, he has landed a job in Russia.
Snowden, a former NSA contractor, became widely known for exposing the US government for spying on its citizens and those outside America’s borders.
After Snowden went public, he sought international asylum while being holed up in Moscow’s airport for more than five weeks, waiting for an answer. Russia granted him one year of asylum despite attempts by the U.S. to have him sent back.
Although charged with espionage, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder sent a note to Russia stating that the charges against Snowden would not lead to the death penalty, reported TheCelebrityCafe July 26.
Snowden now has a job with a Russian website, reported CNN. The name of the website has not been disclosed to the public in order to keep Snowden safe.
