US whistleblower Edward Snowden, who defected to Russia last year after exposing the US government's secret NSA spy scandal, has had his temporary asylum expire with no confirmation as to whether or not he can remain in Russia.
Although his application for an extension was is said to be being processed, there has been a campaign in Germany to grant him asylum there, after his revelations showed evidence of US spying on the German government.
However, in May US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Snowden to "man up" and return to the US to face charges.
"I know ultimately he would love to be able to come home or seek refuge in a country of his choice," Snowden's lawyer Jesselyn Radack said in an interview for Australia's ABC Radio on Wednesday.
