Which three Russian authors did Edward Snowden's lawyer place on his reading list?
Attorney Anatoly Kucherena met with NSA leaker Edward Snowden in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport Wednesday. The Russian lawyer is helping the ex-intel contractor with his Russian asylum request. Kucherena left a brown paper shopping bag behind, and the NYT's Robert Mackey writes
that this bag contained "a change of clothes and English translations of books by three Russian authors — Fyodor Dostoyevsky
, Anton Chekhov
and Nikolai Karamzin
— that might help Mr. Snowden, an American, learn about the nation around the airport he has been trapped in for the past month."
