Fugitive National Security Agency contractor Edward J Snowden is getting a visit from his father. Lon Snowden arrived Thursday morning at Sheremetyevo Airport where he told a waiting Russian television crew that he has had no direct contact with his son since June. “I’m not sure that my son will be returning to the US again,” Snowden said. “That’s his decision you know. He’s an adult.”

Lon Snowden added he had come to Russia as a guest of Anatoly G Kucherena,Snowden’s legal aide in Russia.

“I’m his father,” he said. “I love my son and again I’m here to meet with Kucherena and learn more about my son’s situation and if the opportunity presents itself I certainly hope that I’ll have an opportunity to see my son.”
