Russian Viktor Bout, who was pardoned in USA after being accused of arms trafficking, spoke about the pressure exerted on him by the American investigation. He shared his memories in an interview with KP-Petersburg.

Liberated Citizen Russia stated that before the trial he was placed in the strictest block, in which the lights were not turned off even at night, and it happened that they even refused to provide the prisoners with food. However, no one arranged open torture there, he stressed.

The former prisoner also said that moral pressure was applied to him by the US investigation. They tried to persuade him to slander the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

“I was also persuaded to give negative information about the president of the country, although, of course, I did not have and could not have any information,” Bout emphasized.

Earlier, the Public News Service reported that US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the US administration would monitor a possible threat for the country by the Russian Viktor Bout.
