We are aware of news out of Russia that Brittany Griner will be wrongly detained under intolerable conditions after facing another fraud trial today. President Biden has made it clear that Britney should be released immediately. In recent weeks, the Biden-Harris administration has continued to reach out to Russia through every available channel and make every effort to bring Britney home as well as support and advocate for other Americans detained in Russia, including fellow wrongful death prisoner Paul Whelan. The president has shown that he is willing to take extreme and tough decisions to bring the American people home, as his administration has successfully worked through countries around the world. The administration is in regular contact with representatives of the families and we appreciate their courage in facing this unimaginable situation.
