comment Edward Snowden has been in 'transit' in Moscow for days now. What's the longest possible you can just stay in a terminal?
Allegedly he can legally be there only 24-hours, as the airport's website states: "foreign citizens can stay in Sheremetyevo airport for up to 24 hours without a Russian visa".

@Gagravarr: AFAIK, for example in Europe, at least in EU, if airport does not have separate international transfer zone, it doesn't get certified for international flights. ("international" in case of Schengen countries of course means non-Schengen destinations).

"Schengen" in the question is superfluous, as there are no non-Schengen countries nearby.
