According to human rights lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, the request for political asylum has already been written by Snowden. Kucherena said he will provide legal support for the former NSA contractor seeking asylum. The Russian authorities should be able to decide on Snowden’s asylum request in two to three weeks’ time, he added.

That way it won’t harm Russian-American relations, he added.
