Russia is now admitting that it is in talks to swap Brittney Griner for that Merchant of Death guy

Russia is now copping to the fact that it is in fact preparing to swap Griner for a guy known as The Merchant of Death (real name Viktor Bout.) According to Russian diplomats, talks of a swap are in the intermediate stages and ‘being taken seriously’ through silent channels.

“The discussions on the very sensitive topic of an exchange are proceeding via the channels chosen by our presidents,” Alexander Datchiev, the head of the North America department at the Russian Foreign Ministry, was quoted as saying by state news agency TASS. “Silent diplomacy continues and should bear fruit if Washington, of course, is careful not to fall into propaganda.”
