Snowden Granted One Year Asylum in Russia

Snowden has left the Russia airport and been granted a one year Asylum to live and work in Russia.

The latest news from RT.com, stated that the embroiled former CIA employee and NSA hacker has received papers from the Russian Immigration Service granting him permission to leave the airport and live and work in Russia:

“In July, Snowden applied for temporary asylum in Russia, a status that would allow him to live and work in the country for one year. Kucherena earlier said the fugitive whistleblower is considering securing permanent residency in Russia, where he will attempt to build a life.”

According to the news agency he has been relocated to a safe undisclosed location.

So, Russia it is apparently. Though many see him as a hero for blowing the whistle on the government spying program, with this latest news, can we safely assume now that he will be updated to traitor status?
