“I know Putin well”: Dennis Rodman will go to Russia to help Britney Greiner!

“I got permission to go to Russia to help this girl,” Rodman told NBC. “I’m trying to go this week.”

Mission Impossible? The eccentric former NBA star, Dennis Rodman, who has previously taken diplomatic … initiatives with Kim Jong Un, said Sunday that he plans to go to Russia to help jailed WNBA player Brittney Greiner, according to NBC News.

“I got permission to go to Russia to help this girl,” Rodman told NBC. “I’m trying to go this week,” he added, of his mediation effort.

The imposing Basketball Hall of Famer and veteran of five NBA championship teams, first and foremost of Jordan’s legendary Chicago Bulls, called the Russian President Vladimir Putin “cool” in 2014. He has also visited North Korea several times, including for leader Kim’s birthday…

“I know Putin very well,” Rodman said of his relationship with the Russian president, according to NBC.

Greiner was sentenced to nine years in prison in Russia earlier this month after being found guilty of possessing and smuggling cannabis oil. The Biden administration has submitted a proposal to Moscow to “facilitate her release,” according to Secretary of State Anthony Blinken — that is, to swap US-detained Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout for the basketball player.

The State Department has issued a travel advisory discouraging Americans from visiting Russia.
