WNBA ( Women's National Basketball Association ) star  Brittney Griner was imprisoned in Russia earlier this year for having hashish oil in her bag

Griner is a part of the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and UMMC Ekaterinburg in Russia; she is one of 11 players who has won the WNBA, NCAA

Since detention about four months ago, her imprisonment has been extended three different times 

Earlier this month, Russian state news outlet Tass reported that she must be there until 2 July

On Feb 17, she was improvised, and shortly after, on February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine, complicating diplomatic relations

One legitimate expert lately told Insider's Meredith Cash that he fears her hearing will "never happen" and indicated that Griner would be "clandestinely found guilty

American councils quietly arranged her discharge and safe return to the United States following her February arrest

Peskov said Griner is being behaved no differently than any of the "hundreds and hundreds of Russian citizens" convicted for the same likely crime
