Brittney Griner’s Move To Russian Penal Colony Draws Rebuke, Lawyers Unsure Of Her Whereabouts

Brittney Griner’s Move To Russian Penal Colony Draws Rebuke,
Lawyers Unsure Of Her Whereabouts

In very sad news, it is being reported that Basketball star Brittney Griner has been moved to a Russian Penal Colony and her lawyers are unsure of her whereabouts.

According to Fox News U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken slammed Russia for sending WNBA superstar Brittney Griner to a remote penal colony as her lawyers expressed uncertainty over her exact location.

Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison for carrying vape cartridges containing oils derived from cannabis through a Moscow airport.

The White House condemned the move in an early Wednesday morning statement while Blinken and her lawyers also reacted.

“Following a sham trial and the unjust sentencing of Brittney Griner, Moscow is transferring her from a prison in Moscow to a remote penal colony,” Blinken said.

“It is just another injustice on her ongoing unjust and wrongful detention.

“As we work to secure Brittney Griner’s release, we expect Russian authorities to provide our Embassy officials with regular access to all U.S. citizens detained in Russia, including Brittney, as it is their obligation.

Ensuring the health and welfare of U.S. citizen detainees in Russia is a priority, and we will continue to press for fair and transparent treatment for them all.

“Our hearts are with Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan, as well as their family, friends, and supporters, who all continue to suffer from Russia’s decision to wrongfully detain U.S. citizens.

We continue to work relentlessly to bring them home.

I am focused on doing so, as are so many others in the Department.

We will not relent until they are reunited with their loved ones.”

Thinking endlessly about Brittney Griner. Two weeks of unknown whereabouts en route to a Russian penal colony possible in Siberia. I just can’t. She was just minding her business. ?

Every minute that Brittney Griner must endure wrongful detention in Russia is a minute too long.

We strongly protest the movement of Brittney Griner to a remote penal colony and the Russian government’s use of wrongful detentions. I am committed to bringing home Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan as soon as possible.

Heartbreaking update from @mitchellreports: Brittney Griner was moved to a Russian penal colony on November 4. This is something her family has said in the past they were fearing. Russia’s penal colonies are notoriously harsh with very poor food and terrible conditions.
