US basketball star Britney Greener sends a letter to President Joe Byden and takes her and other Americans detained in Russia home. I asked him to "do as much as he could".
Greener representatives shared part of the letter on Monday.
"When I'm sitting here in a Russian prison, I'm here forever, just in my opinion, without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or achievements. I'm afraid of it, "Grinner wrote.
Greener was arrested in February for possessing cannabis oil. Her trial began last week and will resume on Thursday.
Adrian Watson, a spokeswoman for the US National Security Council, said Greener was illegally detained on Monday, and the Byden administration "continues to work aggressively by all means and puts her in her home. I'll take you home. "
