Russian state television channel Russia 24 showed video on Thursday of Brittney Griner and Viktor Bout as they were boarding their planes as part of a prisoner swap.
The video showed Griner leaving what the presenter said what was her place of detention. She then got into a van. The next clip showed Griner walking on a tarmac toward a plane, boarding the aircraft, showing her US passport and sitting down in one of the seats.
Griner was asked, "are you ready for a flight?" and she replies, "yes," while smiling.
Part of the footage showed Bout walking onto a tarmac, boarding a plane and sitting down inside. The footage was shot in Abu Dhabi, according to Russia 24.
After Bout sat down, he got a quick medical check and called his family.
