Nine months after she was arrested at the Moscow airport for having cannabis oil in her personal bag, American basketball player Brittany Greiner was released from a Russian prison as part of a prisoner exchange and will return to the United States.

The deal between the countries is one prisoner in exchange for another, when the Russians will get back Viktor Baut, who was called the "merchant of death".



The President of the United States Joe Biden said: "I spoke a few moments ago with Brittany Greiner. She is safe, she is on the plane on the way home."

The Russian "dealer of death", he is Victor Baut, is an arms dealer who was arrested in Thailand in 2008 before being extradited to the United States, where he was convicted of smuggling weapons to rebels in Colombia to be used against American citizens.

In 2012, Baut, tried in New York, was sentenced to 25 years in prison
