American basketball player Greiner appeared in a penal camp on the Volga
According to her lawyers, American basketball player Brittney Grenier, who was sentenced to nine years in prison in Russia, has been transferred to a women’s prison in the Russian Republic of Mordovia in the Greater Volga region.
American basketball player Brittney Grenier is removed from the courtroom after a hearing in Khimki, outside Moscow.
Her lawyer, Marija Blagolin and Alexandre Boyko, was quoted by the Interfax news agency on Thursday as saying that Britney was handling the situation as best she could and was trying to survive and adapt to the new circumstances. It was already known last Friday that Greiner had been taken from Moscow to a penal camp. However, it was not immediately known where they were.
The athlete was arrested at Moscow airport in February with a small amount of cannabis and sentenced to nine years in prison by a Moscow court in early August. A higher court rejected Grenier’s appeal in October. The White House says it has made several diplomatic attempts to secure the basketball player’s release.
