The Russians Release a Picture of Brittney Griner


This week we learned that WNBA player Brittney Griner had been detained in Russia nearly a month ago after drug sniffing dogs found a vape pen and THC cartridges in her luggage upon her arrival at the airport in Moscow [click here if you missed that]. 

The Russian State Media has released a picture of Brittney, but her whereabout are still unknown...
Russian state media have released a photograph of WNBA star Brittney Griner in custody, the first since she was detained at the airport in Moscow last month on suspicion of carrying a cannabis-filled vape pen.
Griner, 31, was taken into custody at Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport after returning to Russia from New York during a two-week break from play at the end of February. The exact date of her arrest is unclear and it remains unknown where she is now.
The Wall Street Journal reports that she was scheduled to play on February 20, and that a flight arrived at the airport on February 17 which she may have been on.
She had been playing for the Moscow team UMMC Ekaterinburg and was earning $1.5million for the off-season - six times her WNBA salary with the Phoenix Mercury.

Russians don't like drugs, Ninja's and Lesbians. Now let's see if USA can get her home.

How did she get it through the airport screening in NY? She must have smuggled that vape pen on other trips.

If this scenario is indeed real, and not a wag the dog, Truman show type psyop, being done on the public. I hope she does indeed come home. I can't believe someone would be that damn foolish, given the current climate smh.

More than likely she will do the time. I just saw on the news 2 white men, one veteran had been arrested in Russia on petty charges, and are doing hard time as well. This is not about race at all. Any American that fucks up in Russia, no matter how small will do the time, and there is nothing that any US president could do about it.

It's shady they are keeping her holding location a secret. For all we know she could be locked in a dungeon.

This is a nightmare. The Russians have proven themselves to be hard and heartless. If they are bombing civilians out their country lying to their own soldiers to get them to do it no point in wondering if this young lady bout to do the time. Now Trump she woulda been home, gas lower, stimmys still rolling in Just not this bs. Sure miss his ass.

First, President Biden has been telling Americans for months to get out of Russia and Ukraine, because our intelligence has been predicting an occupation initiated by Putin. Brittany was dumb for even leaving the country, knowing that we're in a global pandemic, knowing that there are mounting tensions between Russia and Ukraine, and then bringing drugs (allegedly) into said territories smh. The level of ignorance and stupidity, on Brittany's part, is astounding. We could possibly be entering WW3, and instead of the U.S. prepping for what could be a deadly disaster, we're being distracted by Brittany's dumb ass actions smh.

After carefully considering all of the information in this article, I have come to the conclusion that this is all just one big psyop -

Why are you on RWS if you love, worship, and miss Don Drumpf??? Take your racist ass on over to Drumpf's new social media spot. You can lick Drumpf's boots over there.

@ 2:18 You're delusional. Trump would have us in WW3 by now. He wouldn't give a damn about this woman.

I guess she didn't check another countries rules. The U.S. is not concerned about her, while they are sticking there nose in Ukraine business because that country is full of Neanderthal's. Brittany might as see the writing on the wall ' jail time '.

Yep. I agree. I doubt it was her first time. And the Russians didn't care.
