WNBA star Brittney Griner has received written correspondence from her wife and loved ones while being detained in Russia. Back in February, the Olympic gold medalist was arrested after she was accused of carrying hashish oil in her luggage.

Since her arrest, Griner has been held at a detention centre in Khimki City, 14 miles northwest of downtown Moscow. According to the human rights group Public Monitoring Commission, she is sharing a cell with two other prisoners.

One of the group’s members, Ekaterina Kalugina, is quoted by TASS saying Griner has not complained about her conditions, although the beds in her cell are “clearly designed for a shorter person”.
