MOSCOW - Former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden has received papers allowing him to leave the Moscow airport where he has been stranded for more than a month, Russia's Interfax news agency said on Thursday.

"I have just passed him documents from Russia's Federal Migration Service," Interfax quoted Anatoly Kucherena, a Russian lawyer assisting Snowden in his request for temporary asylum request, as saying.
