Video of Brittney Griner Leaving Russia Released After She Was Freed from Prison

A video has been released of Brittney Griner traveling back to the United States after being released from a prison in Russia.

The 32-year-old WNBA star was arrested in Russia back in February 2022 after police found vape canisters with cannabis oil in her luggage at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. In August, she was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Joe Biden‘s administration negotiated Brittney‘s release via a trade for international arms dealer Viktor Bout, who was at one time nicknamed “the Merchant of Death.”

Russian state media has released a video of Brittney being escorted out of prison and another video of her on a plane.

“I’m good,” Brittney said in the video. She was asked to describe her mood and she said, “I’m happy.”

When asked if she’s ready for the flight, Brittney said, “Yes, I’m ready.”
