    A Russian court has condemned US b-ball star Brittney Griner to nine years in jail on drug charges.

    She was likewise requested to pay a fine of 1,000,000 roubles (£13,430; $16,300).

    Griner confessed to sedate charges yet has denied intentionally violating the law.

    The 31-year-old Olympic gold medallist was kept in February at an air terminal close to Moscow when vape cartridges containing pot oil were tracked down in her gear.

    Weed is unlawful in Russia.

    Griner’s safeguard group said they would request against Thursday’s decision by the court in Khimki, close to Moscow.

    US President Joe Biden said in an explanation that Russia was unjustly confining Griner and required her to be delivered right away.

    It is hazy the way in which long she will really spend in jail, as the US and Russia have been examining a potential detainee trade that could include the b-ball player, the BBC’s Russia supervisor Steve Rosenberg says.

    Reports in US media recommend detained Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout – known as the Merchant of Death – could be moved by Washington to the Russian specialists as a component of the arrangement.

    Russian examiners had before requested a nine-and-a-half-year jail term for Griner.

    Perusing the decision, the directing adjudicator in Khimki said she considered the way that the American had proactively invested an extensive energy in confinement.
