US President Joe Biden says that the United Arab Emirates facilitated Brittney Griner’s release from Russia in a prisoner swap.

Biden thanks the UAE “for helping us facilitate Brittney’s return, because that’s where she landed” en route back to the United States. Biden says the basketball star will be back home within 24 hours.
