Does Snowden's Russian citizenship changes something on the international ground?

Edward Snowden was granted Russian citizenship in September 2022.

He is actively sought by the US authorities and I was wondering whether this new citizenship can help him should he be outside Russia. I presume that he still holds his US citizenship.

Generally speaking, if he travelled before September 2022 to countries that support Russia his safety would not be in danger anyway (all my question revolves around official, legal requests - not some kind of black ops CIA operation where he would vanish and suddenly pop out in front of a US court) - but maybe his new status changes something anyway?
