Russia: No Deal for Release Of Jailed Israeli-American Woman Being Considered

(JNS) Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Ivanov said this week that a prisoner exchange deal for an Israeli-American woman being held in Russia on drug charges is not being considered.

“As far as I know, an exchange option is not being looked at,” he said, according to Russia’s Tass news agency.

The 27-year-old was arrested by Russian authorities after 10 grams of cannabis were found in her luggage during a layover in Moscow in April. She was sentenced to seven and a half years for drug trafficking.
