Russia, U.S. Say They're Ready For Talks On Prisoner Swap After Griner Sentenced

"[Russian] Foreign Minister Lavrov said this morning...that they are prepared to engage" on a swap for Griner, Blinken said at the foreign ministers' meeting in Cambodia. "And we'll be pursuing that.".
 Blinken said the talks, the highest level direct communication between the two countries since Russia launched its war on Ukraine in late February, also involved former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan.Whelan, a corporate security executive, was sentenced to 16 years in prison on espionage charges in 2020. He denies the charges https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-united-s ... 74918.html

 Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout is shown in custody in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2008. Bout was later extradited to the U.S. and convicted of conspiring to kill Americans. He's serving a 25-year sentence, but he may be part of a prisoner swap the U.S. and Russia are trying to negotiate.
Who is Viktor Bout, the prisoner the U.S. may trade for Brittney Griner  Where most people saw chaos, Viktor Bout saw opportunity.     He was entrepreneurial, not ideological, selling to governments that were fighting rebels, and to rebels who were fighting governments. Separating fact from fiction has often been difficult when documenting Bout's work, but many reports said he even sold arms to both sides in the same conflict.

I fully expected this. Pandering to the woke, lesbo, transgenders, sportsmonkeys and alphabet people. I'd pay to keep IT in the gulag. :evil:

Look at the anti American sentiment on display by the deplorables.
