HONGMoscow, June 24;Whistleblower Edward Snowden is set to leave Moscow for Cuba, the next step on his journey to evade US efforts to prosecute him and seek asylum in Ecuador.

A representative of Aeroflot told AP that Mr. Snowden registered for the flight to Havana that leaves Moscow on Monday at 1005 GMT.

The airline says Mr. Snowden registered for the flight on Sunday using his US passport, which American officials say has been annulled as part of an effort to prosecute him for revealing highly classified government secrets.

Mr. Snowden arrived in Moscow on Sunday from Hong Kong, where he had been hiding for several weeks.

Ecuador’s foreign minister said on Sunday that the country is considering his application for asylum.
