WNBA star Brittney Griner, who was arrested in Russia in February on charges of drug smuggling and spent more than four months in a Russian prison, asked the U.S. President to pay his respects in a handwritten letter today. Joe Biden helped her free her home, and her family released parts of the letter. In her letter, she told Biden that she feared she would never get out of prison.

“Sitting in a Russian prison, alone, without the protection of a wife, family, friends, Olympic aura, or any kind of achievement, I’m terrified that I’ll never get out,” Greener, 31, wrote in the letter. Biden, she understands that he has a lot to do, but still, please don’t forget her and other Americans detained in Russia, she implored Biden to “please do everything in your power to bring us home.”

Greener also emphasized in the letter: “I voted for you in my first vote of 2020. I believe in you. I can still do many good things in my freedom, and you can help me get my freedom back. I miss my wife! I miss you. Family! Missing my teammates! It breaks my heart to know they are suffering right now. Whatever you can do now to get me home, I am grateful.”

Greener’s SOS, which was delivered to the White House on July 4 on Independence Day, said the day had a whole new meaning for her this year, noting: “July 4 is a day when families usually commemorate those The stories of the martyrs who fought for our freedom, including my father, a Vietnam veteran. It hurts to think about how I used to celebrate this day, because freedom means something completely different to me this year.”

Greener’s trial began on the 1st of this month. She was charged with trying to smuggle e-cigarette cartridges containing cannabis oil into Russia. If convicted, she could be sentenced to 10 years in prison. The next hearing will be held on the 7th. U.S. officials say Greener was improperly detained in Russia. Reuters mentioned that U.S.-Russian relations have been strained due to the Ukrainian-Russian war.

Greener helped the Phoenix Mercury win the U.S. Women’s Professional Basketball Championship in 2014, won two league scoring titles, was an eight-time All-Star center center, and won two Olympic gold medals on behalf of the U.S. team. Greener, who has spent the past few years playing in Russia during the U.S. season, was arrested just days after Russian troops invaded Ukraine.
