The United States is ready to take extraordinary measures to free basketball player Brittney Griner, who is in Russian custody. This was stated by the official representative of the White House Karine Jean-Pierre.
A representative of the American administration noted that a significant proposal had been made to the Russian authorities. The White House is determined to continue the intergovernmental discussion of the problem of prisoners, she said.
“As for Brittney Greiner, we intend to take extraordinary measures to get her back home,” said Jean-Pierre.
Washington believes that the deal will help return Greiner to her homeland, who was sentenced to nine years in prison for drug smuggling. In addition, we are talking about the return of the American Paul Whelan, who is serving a 16-year sentence for espionage.
