Brittney Griner, a former WNBA superstar, was a gorgeous fighter on the basketball court who was recently arrested for possession of illicit items which ultimately resulted in detention.
The American WNBA star was found guilty of smuggling and possession of narcotics by a Russian court nearly six months after being arrested at Moscow airport for having a vape cartridge containing cannabis oil in his luggage. Griner was fined 1 million rubles, or about $16,700, and sentenced to nine years in prison (presumably in a forced labor camp).
The Russian government does not appear to view Griner’s release with the same degree of urgency as the US administration. Yuri Ushakov, a Kremlin aide, said on October 16 that reaching a deal was not a priority for Russia at the moment on a Russian state-owned television broadcast.
Griner, on the other hand, is still incarcerated, spending 23 of her 24 waking hours behind bars as loved ones await news from afar. Her situation has deteriorated to the point that she no longer believes she will be saved from her nightmare.
However, Diplomacy is the only option to get Brittney out, but US-Russian talks were delayed by the continuing conflict in Ukraine. It seems like a tough position for Griner, and she can choose to just finish her sentence.
