WNBA star Brittney Griner was freed Thursday after being detained in Russia for nearly 10 months.
The United States agreed to free convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout in exchange but fell short in negotiating the release of Paul Whelan, an American detained in Russia for nearly four years.
The Biden administration has said it was Griner or no one, referring to the terms of a prisoner swap with Russia; however, it said it is still working to bring Whelan home.
Después de Griner’s release from a Russian penal colony, her wife, Cherelle Griner, addressed the nation from the White House on Thursday.
