Griner-Bout swap didn't improve US-Russia ties - Kremlin

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov asserted on Friday, while speaking with Izvestia news, that the prisoner swap of United States basketball player Brittney Griner and Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout did not help improve the relations between Moscow and Washington.

"These negotiations dealt exclusively with the topic of exchange, it is probably wrong to draw any such hypothetical conclusions that this could be a step towards overcoming the crisis that we currently have in bilateral relations," Peskov said, adding that the ties remain in a "sad state."

The Kremlin spokesperson refused to give any more details with regard to the swap.
