American basketball star Brittney Griner will arrive at the Moscow District Court and be tried.
Greener was arrested in February on suspicion of possessing cannabis at the airport while traveling to play for a Russian team. Police said she was carrying an arc canister in hemp oil.
Her trial is scheduled to begin on Friday.
The Phoenix Mercury Center and two US Olympic gold medalists can face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of a large-scale drug transport. Less than 1% of Russian criminal defendants have been acquitted, and unlike the United States, acquittals can be overturned.
The US State Department considers Greener to be “accidentally detained.”
