Former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden is expected to leave Moscow for Cuba on Monday, local media said. 

Snowden would take the SU150 flight at 14:05 pm (1005 GMT) from Terminal D of Sheremetyevo international airport, the Interfax news agency quoted an unnamed source as saying.

Xinhua reporters saw cars of Ecuadorian embassy en route to Sheremetyevo. Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino Aroca said late Sunday on his Twitter account that his government had received an asylum request from Snowden.

The flight time is 12 hours 40 minutes, and the plane will land in Havana, Cuba at 18:45 pm local time (2245 GMT), the source said.
