You are correct about the sentence and the monetary fine but you forgot to mention that sentencing Griner gives the legal authorities the right to authorize a prisoner swap which would enable Griner to return to the United States in the not too distant future. I think the chances are very good that a prisoner swap will be implemented within a few weeks or months at worst. This will also save face for everyone concerned including President Putin. Cynics will argue that President Putin does not care about “saving face” but at the end of the day it will be win-win for Russia and the USA if this prisoner swap takes place and it must and probably will. There is no chance that Griner will spend nine years in aRussian jail - no way.
