The Biden administration is taking steps to bring Brittney Griner home from the Russian prison. According to Jake Sullivan, President Biden is keeping a close eye on the news coming out of Russia. The judge has rejected Griner’s appeal and upheld the ruling today of Griner’s conviction on drug smuggling charges at a Moscow airport.

“We are aware of the news out of Russia that Brittney Griner will continue to be wrongfully detained under intolerable circumstances after having to undergo another sham judicial proceeding today, ” said Sullivan on Tuesday.

“President Biden has been very clear that Brittney should be released immediately,” Sullivan reiterated. 

In recent weeks, the Biden team has continued to engage with Russia “through every available channel and make every effort to bring home Brittney as well as to support and advocate for other Americans detained in Russia, including fellow wrongful detainee Paul Whelan.”

Sullivan said that The President is willing to go to “extraordinary lengths” to bring Griner and Whelan home. The US  has proposed and is open to a prisoner swap with Russia.

” The Administration remains in regular touch with representatives of the families, and we continue to admire their courage in the face of these unimaginable circumstances,” said Sullivan.
