CHITA, Russia (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin will not be the person deciding whether to grant fugitive American Edward Snowden temporary asylum in Russia, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.

"If we are talking about temporary asylum, then this is an issue not for the president but for the Federal Migration Service," Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said after Snowden's application for temporary asylum after spending three weeks at a Moscow airport.
