Negotiations between Moscow and Washington resulted this week in the release of American Brittney Griner. The Kremlin, at the same time, tried to get the United States to release a Russian prisoner, detained in Germany for the murder of a Chechen opponent. White House spokesman John Kirby revealed the information this weekend during an interview with ABC. “They seemed to want a man, named Mr. Krasikov, who is being held in Germany”he slipped.
An unsuccessful request. “He’s a killer”explained the American diplomat, believing that this offer could not be judged “serious”. Since the man was not being held on American soil, the White House explained that it did not have the means to decide on his fate. Such a request therefore very quickly appeared inadmissible.
