The mother of American Trevor Reed, who was sentenced to 9 years in prison for drunken hooliganism, commented on the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said during an interview with NBC.
Recall that in 2019, 28-year-old Reed, who served as a Marine in the United States, came to Russia to rest, but once he got very drunk and quarreled with his housemates. They called the police, who quickly tied up the American, but Reed tried to arrange an accident, attacking the guards already in the car.
Recall that Putin was very critical of Reed. “Your Marine boyfriend is just a drunk and a bully. He got drunk, as we say, got drunk on vodka and started a fight, including hitting a police officer, ” he told NBC.
Trevor Reed’s mother, Paula, said that she was very insulted to hear this and that she considered it “untrue”. The American’s father, Joey Reed, was also critical – in his opinion, what Putin said “does not correspond to his position.”
Earlier it became known that Reed fell ill with the coronavirus. His mother is worried about his condition. “He feels lost, and that’s a concern. In addition, his health is also concerned. You know, no mother would want to receive such a letter from her son, ” she says.
Recall that on June 16, Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin will meet in Geneva. It is possible that the leaders will discuss the exchange of prisoners between Russians and Americans, and we may also talk about Trevor Reed.
