Moscow’s airport is purportedly purgatory for Edward Snowden

June 26, 2013 at 11:25 am in U.S.

... The huge area unites three terminals: the modern, recently built D and E, and the older, less comfortable F, which dates to the Soviet era. The transit and departure zone is essentially a long corridor, with boarding gates on one side and gleaming duty free shops, luxury clothing boutiques and souvenir stores selling Russian Matryoshka dolls on the other. About a dozen restaurants owned by local and foreign chains serve various tastes ...

Russian news agencies, citing unidentified sources, reported that Snowden was staying at a hotel in the transit terminal, but he was nowhere to be seen at the zone’s only hotel, called “Air Express.” It offers several dozen capsule-style spaces that passengers can rent for a few hours to catch some sleep. Hotel staff refused to say whether Snowden was or has in the past stayed there ...

There are also a few VIP lounge areas, accessible to business-class passengers or people willing to pay some $20 per hour. Snowden was not seen in those areas ...

Sheremetyevo’s press service declined to comment on Snowden’s whereabouts. A policeman at the airport laughed off a question from an AP reporter about Snowden’s whereabouts. “Journalists have searched this place for three days and have found nothing. Was he ever here in the first place?” the policeman asked ...

1. Any Moscow airport is purgatory for anyone who's stuck in one.

Although back in my day, there was no such thing as "luxury" at any of them.

4. All Putin has to do is sit back and wait for Snowden to tire of this and go home.

 

Then Putin will not have given in to the U.S. and he won't have caused an international incident.

I'm sure he would have no problem causing an international incident if Snowden actually had anything interesting to say. But since even the Wikileaks attorneys don't think he's worth their effort, I'm sure Russian security thinks the same.

They at least have met the man and looked over his claims and probably his evidence, or lack of evidence.

So then I'm right about being wrong.

6. "Was he ever here in the first place?"

More and more I think Ezra Klein's joke was disturbingly accurate.
