Edward Snowden has apparently been living a life of poverty in Russia, surviving on meager charitable donations.
A photo from Russia’s Life News purports to show the admitted National Security Agency whistleblower after an apparent grocery run.
Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, reportedly confirmed the photo’s authenticity and said Snowden is considering a job in publishing or journalism.
From a rough Google translation, via Gawker: “this photo shows that he lives, as many live in Russia… and it should be noted [he] is quite poor… at the moment he is living on donations… However, the money he has left is very little.”
The weird thing about the photo is that it goes against Kucherena’s earlier claim that Snowden sneaks around in disguises. It would appear not.
