Russia regards as "stagnated" asylum to Edward Snowden
Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia have offered asylum without any hint from the US citizen
"Seemingly, each party hopes to overcome such difficult situation without ‘giving a bad impression,' the source said, as quoted by Interfax and AFP.
The US government "stopped sending requests to Russians. We have received no petition for some days, either by official or unofficial means," the source added.
Moscow has testified that it will not hand Snowden over, based on international law and because the ex CIA contractor is in the airport transit area. Therefore, he has not crossed the Russian border.
Wanted by the US government for leaking a US spying program of communications around the world, the former consultant of the National Security Agency (NSA) has taken refuge since June 23 in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.
Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia have offered asylum. However, so far, Snowden has not hinted any departure soon to any of those countries.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
