US offers Russia prisoner swap deal in bid to free basketball star Brittney Griner

The US has offered Russia a prisoner swap deal, in an effort to bring home two jailed Americans, including basketball star Brittney Griner.

The Women’s NBA player was arrested at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow on 17 February as she made her way back to Russia to play for UMMC Yekaterinburg, during the US Women’s National Basketball Association off-season.
