Here we are talking about Brittney Griner Physical Condition Looks to Be Perfectly Great According to an Us Diplomat. Brittney Griner’s physical condition seems to be “quite OK,” according to Roger Carstens, the special presidential envoy for hostage matters who went with her back to the United States following her detention in Russia.
On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Carstens complimented Griner, telling co-anchor Dana Bash, “She looks wonderful.” Carstens continued, “I mean, she was full of energy. “Looked amazing. She is currently in Fort Sam Houston getting some medical tests done, but she appears OK.
President Biden announced a prisoner swap on Thursday in which the U.S. will free notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout in exchange for Griner’s release from Russia, where she had been detained since February.
The Biden administration spent months trying to obtain Griner’s release after she was detained in February at an airport in the Moscow region for having marijuana oil-infused vape cartridges in her luggage.

Griner was detained unlawfully by the United States after being taken into custody right before Moscow invaded Ukraine. Griner was sent to a notorious Russian jail colony after being found guilty and losing her appeal.
Carstens, who met Griner and traveled back to the United States with her, claimed that he offered to give Griner some privacy so she could unwind on the flight, but that Griner instead wanted to talk.
“On an 18-hour flight, she probably talked for 12 of those hours. We discussed everything under the sun, Carstens said on CNN, adding that he will let Griner herself go into greater detail regarding the circumstances surrounding her detention. However, the Biden administration has come under fire for failing to secure the release of former U.S.
Marine Paul Whelan, who has been detained in Russia for four years on espionage allegations he firmly rejects. The government has also been under fire from conservatives for releasing Bout, a renowned arms trader who supplied weapons to numerous sanctioned countries.
The White House has defended its choice by claiming that Russia refused to free Whelan and that the action would either bring Griner home or result in neither of them returning.
Bash was informed by Carstens that “we still have work to do even though we’re welcome someone home.” “So as we board the plane and begin our wonderful talk, I shake Britney’s hand. Paul Whelan is already entering my mind.
How can we bring him back? When questioned about why the United States has not yet implemented Biden‘s executive order from July authorizing sanctions against those responsible for hostage kidnapping, Carstens said such actions will soon be taken.
He remarked on CNN, “Believe me, we’re working on target packages right now. It’s a topic that we talk about frequently. And soon you’ll start to notice things being implemented.
