Vladimir Putin Spokesman Makes Feelings On Brittney Griner Very Clear
Andrew Gould

Vladimir Putin’s top spokesman disputed the U.S. State Department's claim that Brittney Griner is being held as a Russian hostage.

Dmitry Peskov told NBC News’ Keir Simmons that he "strongly disagrees" with the hostage classification.

“She violated Russian law, and now she’s being prosecuted,” Peskov said. “It’s not about being a hostage. There are lots of American citizens here. They’re enjoying their freedoms … but you have to obey the laws.”

Griner was arrested on February 17 for allegedly carrying cannabis oil in her luggage. The U.S. government reclassified the WNBA star as wrongfully detained in early May.
