"We don’t care how he comes home, if they want to exchange Trevor for some criminals that you know are low-level criminals or whatever," Trevor's father, Joey, said on NBC's "TODAY" show on Monday.

The brother of Paul Whelan, another former Marine who was also detained in Russia and sentenced to 16 years in prison last year, however, has mixed feelings about the idea of a prisoner exchange between the two countries.

We would rather see the door come open and him come out rather than some sort of negotiated release of Russian convicts," Whelan's brother said Monday on "TODAY.".

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the unlawful detentions of Whelan and Reed need to end and that prisoner swaps would be on the table when Biden and Putin meet.

Asked about the imprisoned men, Putin said Reed was a "troublemaker" and "drunk" who "got himself s**t-faced and started a fight." Reed is serving a nine-year sentence for hitting a Russian police officer in 2019, a charge the U.S

But "we’re very happy to hear that President Putin is open to a prisoner exchange, and we hope that that's something that happens very soon because Trevor and Paul Whelan both have been there long enough considering that they're innocent of the charges against them."

"Of all the major issues between our countries, this prisoner exchange is probably the easiest," Joey Reed said
