Submission + - Snowden granted three more years in Russia

SiggyRadiation writes: Edward Snowden is allowed to stay in Russia for three more years. According to the NYPost:
"His lawyer, Analtoly Kucherena, was quoted by Russian news agencies on Thursday as saying Snowden now has been granted residency for three more years, but that he had not been granted political asylum. That status, which would allow him to stay in Russia permanently, must be decided by a separate procedure, Kucherena said, but didn’t say whether Snowden is seeking it."

The question that remains of course is, did the Russians use this as leverage over him to get to more information or influence him or is the positive PR in itself enough for the Russians in the current climate of tensions and economic sanctions relating to the Ukraine crisis?
