Brittney Griner pleaded not guilty in a Russian court on Thursday. She will be held in detention for at least another two months after the WNBA star’s arrest was prolonged. Griner is accused of carrying narcotics into Russia.

Colin Allred, a member of the United States Congress, recently told TMZ that he hopes Griner does not become a political pawn during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
