Prisoners sharing questions Viktor Bout and Brittney Greiner were engaged by the Russian and American intelligence services. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced this to journalists on Friday.
“There are absolutely no possibilities to reveal anything. The special services of both countries were involved,” said the press secretary of the President of Russia.
According to him, the main result of the entire exchange process is that the Russian citizen, who was held captive for 14 years, “illegally” returned to homeland.
On Thursday, December 8, the United States and Russia exchanged prisoners between Viktor Bout and Brittney Griner in Abu Dhabi. The Russian was in a penal colony on charges of plotting to kill Americans and providing material support to terrorism, and Griner was sentenced to 9 years for drug smuggling.
