American basketball star Brittney Griner is being sent to a Russian penal colony, where she will serve out her nine-year sentence for drug possession, though her exact whereabouts are unknown today.

The WNBA star and two-time Olympic medalist was taken from a detention center, where she’s been jailed for nearly nine months, last Friday. Her legal team confirms she was being transferred to a penal colony — forced labor camps notorious for their lack of hygiene and access to medical care — but said they did not know where exactly she would end up.
