NSA Leaker may have plans to soon leave the Moscow airport where he has been stuck in legal limbo, the USA Today reports.

A lawyer assisting Snowden is helping him apply for temporary asylum in Russia. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Snowden has been advised not to do anything that would jeopardize Russian-U.S. relations, the USA Today wrote.

“We have warned Mr. Snowden that any actions by him connected with harming Russian-American relations are unacceptable,” Putin said.

It’s unclear where Snowden plans to go once he leaves the airport.

Venezuela appears to be NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s last hope of gaining asylum, an influential member of Parliament said, USA Today reports.

Alexei Pushkov, head of the Parliament’s international affairs committee, wrote on Twitter: “Venezuela is waiting for an answer from Snowden. This, perhaps, is his last chance to receive political asylum.”

Still, Venezuelan officials haven’t been in touch with Snowden, who is believed to be stuck in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport.

Those officials plan to speak with Russian officials today about the situation, according to the USA Today.

The fate of the NSA leaker remains in limbo as Russia and Ecuador send mixed messages about their role in Edward Snowden’s attempt to seek asylum, ABC News reports.

A spokesman for Vladimir Putin said Moscow would not help Snowden seek refuge.

Snowden is stuck at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport because the U.S. has revoked his passport, so he’s unable to fly.

His plan was to fly to Cuba and then connect to a flight to Ecuador.
