Russia’s Vkontakte CEO Pavel Durov offers job to Edward Snowden


MOSCOW, Aug 1 (PRIME) -- Pavel Durov, the founder and CEO of Russian social networking Web site Vkontakte, invited on Thursday Edward Snowden, a former employee of the U.S. intelligence service, to join Vkontakte’s team.

“We invite Edward to St. Petersburg (where Vkontakte is headquartered) and we will be very glad if he decides to join our star team of programmers. No European Internet company is as popular as Vkontakte. I think Edward might be interested in the protecting private data of millions of our users,” Durov said on his private Web page.

Snowden, who recently revealed that the FBI and National Security Agency (NSA) collected data from services belonging to the U.S.’ largest Internet companies, came to Russia in late June and asked for political asylum in Russia in July.

Snowden had spent more than a month at the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport before he was finally granted asylum and allowed to leave the airport on Thursday.
