Viktor Bout, the terrorist freed in a prisoner exchange for weed-smuggler WNBA player Brittney Griner, said he wished her good luck on the tarmac in Abu Dhabi where they were exchanged.

“I wished her luck, she even sort of reached out her hand to me,” Bout said on Saturday in an interview with Russian state-controlled broadcaster RT.

“Again, it’s our tradition. You should wish everyone good fortune and happiness,” he said, adding that he believed Griner “was positively inclined” towards him.
