Paul Whelan, a former US Navy officer detained in Russia, was on the phone with his parents today. It was Whelan’s first contact with his family since the White House raised concerns last week about the period of silence.

White House national security spokesman John Kirby said US consular officials spoke with Paul Whelan today and said Whelan agreed with them.

Kirby added that he would not go into details about Whelan’s health so as not to violate confidentiality.

Whelan was arrested in 2018 and convicted of espionage in 2020. His brother David Whelan said in a statement that Paul Whelan had been transferred to the prison hospital.

“This call is at least proof that Paul is alive, although it does not explain other questions such as why he went there, why the phones stopped working, why he had to find out the location of the US embassy and why Russian officials refused to answer.” , Whelan’s brother said in a statement.

A senior State Department official confirmed that Whelan was transferred to the prison hospital last week, Thursday, during Thanksgiving celebrations in the United States. The official said that Whelan met with representatives of the US consulate, and then returned to the correctional camp today.

Kirby’s White House national security spokesman said Wednesday last week that he was concerned they had not received any information from Moscow on Whelan’s whereabouts or condition.
