Brittany Griner update from US

Less than two weeks after Brittney Griner was moved to a Russian penal colony to start her nine-year sentence, the U.S. Department of State gives a concerning update about the athlete’s imprisonment. 

FOX News reports that despite Russia’s claims of new “activity” in negotiations to return Brittney Griner to the U.S., the U.S. Department of State reveals that Russian officials are still not seriously negotiating. It was also reported that Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov stated Viktor Bout, a convicted arms dealer serving 25 years in a U.S. prison, is among those being discussed. “Obviously we are hoping for a positive result,” he shared.

But, the U.S. continues to say that Russia has consistently failed to negotiate for Brittney Griner in good faith. The U.S. Department of State issued a statement. “We are not going to comment on the specifics of any proposals other than to say that we have made a substantial offer that the Russian Federation has consistently failed to negotiate in good faith.”

It was further revealed that the U.S. government is continuing to follow up on the office. It has also proposed alternative potential ways with the Russian government. “The Russian government’s failure to seriously negotiate on these issues in the established channel,” it was noted. “Or any other channel for that matter, runs counter to its public statements.”

Brittney Griner’s family remains confident in the Biden administration. However, the athlete’s family is trying to stay level-headed about the situation. Griner has been placed at the female penal colony IK-2 in Yavas. This is in the region of Mordovia. This is also the same region as where American Paul Whelan is being held.
