Enes Freedom is against an exchange between Brittney Griner and a Russian arms dealer

While the United States is working for the repatriation of Brittney Griner, sentenced 9 years for having introduced cannabis into Russia, Enes Freedom denounces an unfair exchange with a Russian arms trafficker.

Known in particular for his political positions on Turkey or China, Enes Freedom – formerly Enes Kanter – delivered his position on the possibility of a diplomatic exchange of prisoners between the United States and Russia which would make it possible to repatriate Brittney Griner in the country.

The human rights activist and former NBA player agreed the sentence was severe but also added that he was against the idea of ​​the recently proposed prisoner exchange between Griner and a former Marine Paul Whelan for an arms dealer. Russian detained in the United States.

“First, Brittney Griner pleaded guilty and the sentence is severe. Of course, like everyone else, I want her to go home because I know how harsh Russian prisons can be. I know one thing is missing: the national anthem. But, you know, I’ve been following her case very closely and the only thing I’ll say is we can’t repatriate her against a death dealer, a person who is responsible for thousands of lives by selling illegal weapons in Africa, Asia. We can’t trade this horrible human being for her. It’s just not a fair trade, “he denounced at the microphone of Fox News.
