Russia Will Hold U.S. Basketball Star Brittney Griner Until at Least May 19th: State News Agency TASS

The Russian News Agency TASS reported that Russia will hold woke U.S. basketball star Brittney Griner until at least May 19th.

“American basketball star Brittney Griner’s arrest has been extended until May 19, according to Russian state news”

As we previously reported, “WNBA star Brittney Griner is in hot water as she has been detained in Russia since February and could face up to 10 years in prison after customs officers found ‘vapes’ containing hashish oil in her luggage.

Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, said in July 2020, ‘I honestly feel we should not play the national anthem during our season.

In Russia, Griner has played with UMMC Ekaterinburg since 2015 during the WNBA offseason in the winter.

Per TASS, the court said, “The court granted the request of the investigation and extended the period of detention of the US citizen Griner until May 19.” Griner allegedly got caught smuggling narcotics into Moscow’s airport putting herself in this situation.

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hilary Clinton, shared an article on the story demanding that Russia “Free Britney”.

“WNBA center Brittney Griner appeared in a Moscow court today, where she reportedly pleaded not guilty (to drug charges). The court extended her detention for another two months, according to @mash_breaking

As Griner is practically stranded in Russia for the foreseeable future, you have to wonder what mindz she is experiencing. While we don’t want to see any Americans held captive in Russia, we don’t know if she committed a crime or something else. Either way, most would argue she is wishing she was in the United States right now even if she doesn’t like the national anthem.
