NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was spotted out and about shopping for groceries in Russia, UK’s the Telegraph reports.
Snowden has been a thorn in President Obama’s side ever since he leaked secret documents that proves the White House used the National Security Agency to spy on American citizens.
The 30-year-old former CIA agent was spotted in public for the first time since being granted asylum in Russia earlier this year. He is still a wanted man in the U.S.
In the image published by LIFE News, Snowden is dressed casually in blue jeans and a long sleeve button down shirt, wearing a goatee and sunglasses resting on top of his head. He is alone as he steers a shopping cart loaded down with groceries and other household items to a car.
This image of Snowden thumbing his nose at Obama as he goes about his everyday routine is sure to get a lot of attention in the White House.
From The Telegraph:
A car with partly legible Russian plates and a crossing sign identify the scene as in Russia.
“The photograph was taken in Moscow,” said Life News, which is known for its close ties to the Kremlin and security services.
There has been no reported sighting of MrSnowden since he walked out of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport on August 1 after obtaining temporary asylum in Russia despite protests from Washington.
Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena has said he is living in a secret location in fear of being tracked down by US law enforcers.
