Even as Edward Snowden’s disclosures of U.S. spying continue to create global waves, it’s becoming clear that the American’s life is supervised by Russian intelligence agents.“He’s actually surrounded by these people,” Andrei Soldatov, an investigative journalist who co-authored a history of the Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), told Steven Lee Meyers of The New York Times.

That has appeared to be the case since the 30-year-old arrived in Moscow from Hong Kong on June 23, when a radio host in Moscow “saw about 20 Russian officials, supposedly FSB agents, in suits, crowding around somebody in a restricted area of the airport,” according to Anna Nemtsova of Foreign Policy.

“When the F.S.B. actually got him, they started to handle it their own way,” Soldatov told The Times. “This is the way the security services operate all the time.”

Snowden’s life in Russia has been overseen by Anatoly Kucherena, a lawyer employed by the FSB, as well as Sarah Harrison, a WikiLeaks advisor who has reportedly been by Snowden’s side since he was in China.

A Kremlin-linked news agency has posted pictures of Snowden grocery shopping and riding a boat, and Kucherena says that Snowden got a job at an unnamed Russian website.

Soldatov and others cautioned to the Times that what the FSB allows for public consumption may present an impression of a happy and free asylum while obscuring ulterior motives for hosting the former CIA technician and NSA-trained hacker.
