From Russia with Code: Edward Snowden gets job on website helldesk

Bypasses frying pan, leaps straight into fire with legs akimbo

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has reportedly bagged a job in Russia after fleeing to the former superpower after leaking details of indiscriminate wiretapping being carried out by the US National Security Agency.

Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, declined to say which major website's support team Snowden would be working for, according to the Voice of Russia. But he did say that the job starts in November.

In August, 30-year-old Snowden - who is wanted by the US government over espionage charges - was granted temporary asylum in Russia.

This week, a photograph emerged on Russia's Life News that appeared to show Snowden taking in the tourist sights in Moscow during a boat ride down the city's river. However, his lawyer has refused to disclose the exact location of where the blabbermouth is now living. ®
