On November 4, American basketball player Brittney Griner, convicted in Russia for drug smuggling, was transferred from a pre-trial detention center to a penal colony.

“At the moment we have no information about her current whereabouts or where she is headed. We, as lawyers, as well as the US Embassy, must be notified upon her arrival at her destination", - lawyers Maria Blagovolina and Alexander Boykov said.

Recall that in February of this year, Olympic basketball champion Brittney Griner was detained for finding vapes with hash oil in her hand luggage.

On October 4, the Khimki City Court sentenced basketball player Brittney Griner to nine years in prison. In the same month, the Moscow Regional Court refused to uphold Greiner's defense appeal against the sentence for smuggling; the sentence of the Khimki City Court of Moscow remained unchanged with a few exceptions.
