    Russia Celebrates Griner Prisoner Swap as ‘a Capitulation by America’

    Published on

    Russia made fun of the United States over the Biden administration’s choice to swap a basketball player for an arms dealer in choruses of laughter audible throughout the world.

    On Thursday, WNBA star Brittney Griner was exchanged for infamously arms dealer Viktor Bout, who had previously been found guilty in 2011 of attempting to kill American citizens through weapons sales that included collaborating with Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Viktor Bout had been detained for drug possession in a Moscow airport in February.

    Paul Whelan, an ex-Marine, is still being held captive in Russia as a result of the one-for-one trade. Whelan has refuted the assertion made by that nation that he was imprisoned for being a spy.

    According to CBS, Russian TV personality Vladimir Soloviev referred to the swap as “a tremendous victory.”

    “The Russian intelligence agencies, alongside the Foreign Ministry, have carried out a stunning operation and brought home a man who did not plead guilty once, who was wrongly convicted and slandered but did not betray his homeland,” Soloviev said.

    “It is a capitulation by America,” according to Reuters, Russian lawmaker Maria Butina remarked.” “It shows that Russia doesn’t abandon its own while America has shown its defeat.”

    ‘The fact that Russia pushed through the exchange of Bout, whom America fundamentally did not want to give away for many years, right now means that, like in The Godfather, we ‘made them an offer that cannot be refused,’” Butina remarked on Telegram, according to the Daily Mail.

    “This is a position of strength, comrades.”

    America got what it wanted, according to Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of the government-funded RT Channel, who posted on her Telegram account.

    According to CBS, she stated, “Between a hero spy, a decorated Marine who suffered for service to the Fatherland, and a drug-addicted black lesbian who suffered for vaping hashish, the modern American voter chooses the obvious.”

    According to Fox News, the distinction between the American who was liberated and the one who was not served as material for a different Russian commentator.

    The commentator, whose name was not given, said Whelan’s “first problem is that he is white. His second problem is he is a man. His third problem: He is a heterosexual. This is not something that can be forgiven today. It’s just a catastrophe. Yes, here Griner beats him in every aspect.”
