Sep 16, 2022

National Security Council coordinator John Kirby says Russia has not responded to the "substantial proposal" the U.S. offered back in July regarding the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan.

Kirby told the media during Friday’s White House press briefing that the U.S. has made a "serious offer" to negotiate the return of Griner and Whelan, but added that those discussions are "still ongoing."
