Welcome home! US military veterans captured by Russia while fighting in Ukraine arrive in NYC


Two American veterans captured by the Russians while fighting in Ukraine were returned to the United States on Friday, to be united with their overjoyed families.

Andy Tai Ngoc Huynh, 27, and Alexander Drueke, 39, were both freed on Wednesday as part of a Saudi-brokered prisoner swap.

The pair landed back at New York’s JFK airport around noon on Friday, and were taken to the TWA Hotel by the terminal.

‘I’ve been informed that Andy and Alex are back on American soil,’ tweeted Robert Aderholt, an Alabama congressman.

‘These are definitely answered prayers!’
