Russia released Brittany Griner (American basketball player) months later in a prisoner swap between the two countries.
The US has released Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout.
US President Joe Biden tweeted about Brittany Griner that Britney is safe, on a plane and returning home.
As foreign media, the prisoners were exchanged in the United Arab Emirates, the final approval of the release of the Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout in exchange for the release of the female basketball player Brittany Griner was given by President Joe Biden last week.
Victor Bout was sentenced to 25 years in prison by court in USA, but President Biden commuted the arms dealer’s sentence to free basketball player Brittany Griner.
It should be noted that Brittany Griner was arrested at the airport in Russia in February 2022.
Britney admitted to having cans of marijuana-distilled oil in her luggage bag.
