Edward Snowden in Moscow

Snowden is possibly holed up in the wing of the Novotel airport hotel reserved for travelers in transit who don’t have visas to enter Russia. The Novotel’s main building, outside the airport, has a plush lobby with a fountain, a trendy bar and luxury shops. One wing, however, lies within the airport’s transit zone, a kind of international limbo that is not officially Russian territory.

The main part of the Novotel is out of bounds. The transit wing feels like a lockup: You are obliged to stay in your room, except for brief walks along the corridor. Three cameras track your movements along the hallway and beam the images back to a multiscreen monitor.
