BREAKING NEWS – Moscow, Russia – WNBA star Brittney Griner has been moved to a Russian forced labor camp, nearly nine months after the basketball player was arrested in Russia for allegedly possessing cannabis oil.

The development is the latest update after Griner’s appeal of her 9-year sentence was denied by a Russian court last month. The White House released a statement condemning the move, and Russia stated that Griner was in forced labor as part of a project to reduce nationwide unemployment.
