"He is not flying to Cuba or anywhere else for that matter," a source told Russian RIA Novosti news agency

MOSCOW, Russia – Fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden cannot leave the transit zone at a Moscow airport to fly on for another destination as his travel documents are invalid, a report said Thursday, June 27.

“Snowden does not have valid documents. He is not flying to Cuba or anywhere else for that matter,” a source familiar with the situation told the state RIA Novosti news agency.

The report came after Snowden again failed Thursday to appear on Aeroflot’s 1005 GMT service from Moscow to Havana, seen as his most likely onward route.

A senior Ecuadorean foreign ministry official on Wednesday denied claims by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks that Quito had given Snowden a travel document after his US passport was cancelled.
