"I was taken by a representative from the Americans, brought to the White House, I went through a routine scan on the scanner, a personal inspection, then got sniffed by the dogs," he wrote. "Then we went to the White House, where I waited in one of the rooms for the arrival of our delegation."
"On the shoot itself, I went with only two cameras," Sherbek continued, with everything else, including his cell phone, left behind.

They then had a press conference at the Russian embassy, then left the country, he says.
