Griner in seventh hearing in Russian court

STORY: Griner, a US-based Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) star player, was arrested at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport on February 17, just days before Russia invaded Ukraine , triggering a wider confrontation with the West. She pleaded guilty to a drug charge in court on July 7 but denied intentionally breaking the law. His trial officially began on July 1 in a court on the outskirts of Moscow. Russian authorities said the 31-year-old woman was carrying vape cartridges containing hashish oil, a substance that is illegal in the country. She was charged with smuggling a large amount of drugs, an offense that could result in up to 10 years in prison. US officials and about 20 athletes have called for the release of Griner – or “BG” as she is known in the basketball community.
