NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who was granted asylum in Moscow in August, has landed a technical support job on one of Russia's largest websites, but its identity, for now, is strictly hush-hush, according to his lawyer.
"Edward starts working from November 1. He will be part of the support team of one of the largest Russian websites. I can't say the name of the website now for security reasons," Anatoly Kucherena tells RIA Novosti.
This summer, Pavel Durov, founder of VK - a Russian version of Facebook - publicly invited Snowden to join his team.
"Currently Edward tries to keep a low profile, and my offer was public: it could be a problem," Durov said earlier, according to ITAR-TASS news agency.
Snowden, 30, faces espionage charges in the United States for revealing information about the National Security Agency's surveillance and data-gathering networks. Snowden has said he did it to "correct this wrongdoing."
He first fled to Hong Kong and then to Russia, where he was stuck for more than a month without a visa or travel documents in the transit lounge at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.
