Edward Snowden's father has decided not to come to Russia this week, despite the fact that he has received a visa to Russia.
According to his representative, Lon Snowden is concerned about the hype in the media about his visit and decided to postpone the trip to Russia. The representative confirmed that her client and his lawyer had received Russian visas.
The new date of Lon Snowden's visit to Moscow has not been unveiled. Mattie Fein, the representative, also noted that Edward Snowden avoids contacts with the press, nor does he write any posts on social networks. Therefore, one should not believe the statements that appear on the Internet on his behalf, she said.
