White House: Moscow does not respond to calls for prisoner swap, negotiations continue

John Kirby, coordinator of the White House’s National Security Council for Strategic Communications (NSC), said negotiations for the release of American citizens Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan, who are being held captive in Russia, are ongoing. His words were quoted by TASS.

At the same time, the Russian side did not respond to the prisoner exchange offer, the White House representative noted.

“They did not respond to our proposal. We made a serious offer to bring home Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan. The Russians did not respond to this proposal. But that does not mean we are not still negotiating and trying”, the SEN coordinator explained.

Kirby explained that he was not aware of the reasons for Moscow’s refusal. “It is better to ask our Russian colleagues about this,” she said.

On July 27, the White House offered Russia to exchange businessman Viktor Bout for Americans Paul Whelan and Brittany Griner. Bout’s wife Alla expressed fear that Washington’s proposal was a political speculation.
