Blinken says he spoke to Russia FM about detained Americans
- United States
Blinken did not provide details of Lavrov's response to what he had previously called a “substantial proposal'' for Russia to release the two US citizens: Paul Whelan and Brittany Griner.
Blinken had publicly requested the call and revealed the existence of the offer to Russia — which people familiar with it say involves a swap for Whelan and Griner with convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout.
