Hundreds and hundreds of Russian citizens convicted of carrying hashish.”
The risk of Brittney Griner losing this trial would require up to ten years in prison. Her condition in the custody of Russian authorities raised concerns. So far, she has not been able to establish direct contact with her family and representatives in the United States. Blame constantly shifts between both parties, with one claiming the US made no effort and the other claiming the Russians were uncooperative.
