BALL - Rodman announces trip to Russia to free Griner (WNBA)

Dennis Rodman, 61, a five-time NBA champion, announced that he was “allowed to travel to Russia” to secure the release of 31-year-old basketball player Britney Griner. The WNBA star player was recently sentenced by a Russian court to nine years in prison on drug possession and trafficking charges after being detained in February at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport.

“I’m trying to go this week to help a girl. I know Putin very well,” Rodman told NBC News. The controversial former basketball player and free-time diplomat said in 2014 after meeting with the Russian president that “Putin is a tough guy.” Also known are Rodman’s meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, whom he considers “a friend for life”, twice in 2013 and once in 2017, and his support in 2015 for his candidacy. United States.

Rodman’s availability caused embarrassment to President Joe Biden’s administration, which considered the arrest “wrong” and is negotiating a prisoner swap with Russia.

In statements cited by the Washington Post, a presidential spokesman, who requested anonymity given the “delicacy of the situation,” argued that Rodman’s actions “could greatly complicate efforts to free Griner.”

The basketball player, who was arrested with 0.702 grams of marijuana found in vape pen oil in one of her purses, pleaded guilty at trial but added that she never meant to offend anyone.

However, Rodman did not specify who authorized him to go to Moscow and what plans to help Griner.
