Immediately after Brittney’s release was announced, social media users took to crediting the actor for her release. It was confirmed on 8th December that Brittney had been released and was on her way home. After a prisoner swap involving Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, she was released. President Joe Biden was quoted by CNN as saying: After months of being unjustly detained in Russia under inhumane conditions, Brittney will soon be back in the arms of her family, as she should have been all along. It was not a matter of choosing which American to bring home. Unfortunately, Russia treats Paul’s case differently than Brittney’s for totally illegitimate reasons. While we haven’t been able to secure Paul’s release, we will keep trying. No matter what, we will never give up. The family of Paul Whelan says they were informed in advance that he would not be included in the prisoner swap between the US and Russia. An American businessman and former Marine is currently imprisoned in Russia under suspicion of spying.
