The Deal That Freed Brittney Griner

8 Desember 2022

President Biden on Thursday announced the negotiated release of WNBA star Brittney Griner from a penal colony in Russia and her return to the U.S. She had been detained since February, when Russian authorities found a small amount of hash oil in vape cartidges that were in her luggage when she arrived in the country. In return, the U.S. released convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. NPR's White House Correspondent Franco Ordoñez and Moscow Correspondent Charles Maynes walk through the details of the deal. And White House National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby explains how the negotiations unfolded.
