Brittney Griner’s detainment in Russian has been one of the biggest stories in sports over the past couple of weeks. The Russian government is now finally giving access to Brittney and she seems to be doing quite well.
According to Russian officials, Griner was trying to sneak hashish oil onto the plane she was going to take back home to the United States. Since then, she has been in jail. Not to mention, the US government has also not been able to speak to her, despite their best efforts.
Fortunately, the US government now has an update on Brittney. Today on CNN, U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price gave a massive update on Griner, noting that the Russians are now allowing US officials to speak with her. It was also revealed that she is doing quite well despite her unfortunate circumstances.
“There’s only so much I can say,” Price said via TMZ, “but what I can say is that our official found Brittney Griner to be in good condition. And we will continue to do everything we can to see to it that she is treated fairly throughout this ordeal.”
Although, there is no telling if and when she will be released, the latest update certainly looks a step in the right direction. With the war going on between Russia and Ukraine, international tensions are high. Hopefully, Griner will be well taken care of, for the time being.
