Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed Friday while in Cambodia for a regional summit that Russia stands “ready to discuss” a prisoner swap for US WNBA star Brittney Griner, coming the day after she was given a harsh 9-year prison sentence for getting caught in a Russian airport six months ago with Cannabis vape cartridges.
