Russia: basketball player Brittney Griner sentenced to 9 years in prison, strong reaction in the United States

-

Published on: 08/04/2022 – 23:01 The sentencing of American basketball player Brittney Griner to 9 years in prison in Russia for drug trafficking, in the context of very tense relations with Russia, caused a lot of reaction in the United States . With our correspondent in Washington, Guillaume NaudinIt was the White House that was the first to react with a press release. The judgment is not a surprise for Joe Biden. The prison sentence is just a reminder of what everyone already knew: Russia is abusively holding Brittney Griner. The US president is calling for her immediate release so she can be reunited with his wife, loved ones, her friends and teammates. Same condemnation from Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who expresses his concerns about the Russian judicial system and its use by power. The Senate Foreign Affairs Committee uses the word “hostage” about Brittney Griner, double Olympic champion and the sports world is also mobilized. The women’s and men’s professional leagues express their support and concern. American officials recall that a prisoner exchange proposal is on the table: Brittney Griner and another American, Paul Whelan, who is accused of of espionage, against the trafficker of arms Viktor Bout, condemned to 25 years of prison in the United States. The ball is therefore now in the Russian court. In other words, the decision depends directly on Vladimir Putin. ► To read also: Detained in Russia, American basketball player Brittney Griner appeals to Joe Biden
