Seoul, South Korea – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the sentencing of wrongfully detained American Brittney Griner:
“The wrongful detainment and unjust sentencing of Brittney Griner are brazen and unacceptable violations of the rule of law by Putin. Russia must release her immediately.
“Every day that Brittney Griner remains in detention is a reminder of Putin’s contempt for human rights, human dignity and the law.
“Congress supports and stands with President Biden in making the release of Brittney Griner a priority, and our prayers are with Brittney’s wife, Cherelle, and their entire family. We will continue to support the Administration as it works to bring her, Paul Whelan, and others unjustly detained in Russia and around the world home to their country and to their loved ones.”
