Almost positive I read an article recently where his continued stay was assured, so this is either the Russian authorities rubber stamping the deal or political grandstanding for the news channels.

Where does he go if asylum isn't extended - back to the International transit lounge at the airport?

He was on his way to Venezuela before he got intercepted in Russia.

Intercepted? His passport got revoked before he could leave Russia.

Dont you remember those few first tense days in Russia? When not even Snowdens lawyer could get to him? A whole bunch of backroom deals were passed so Snowden could get access to his lawyers. So yeah, intercepted. Im pretty sure Venezuela would have accepted him even without the passport considering he was a political refugee asking for asylum.
