During the live broadcast of the Vremya program on the First Channel of Russia, a woman suddenly appeared in the studio with calls not to believe Russian propaganda.
She held a large poster with slogans right behind the back of the host of the program, Ekaterina Andreeva. The viewers of one of the most watchable broadcasts of the Russian Federation turned out to be witnesses of the anti-war action live.
In big letters on the poster was written: “NO WAR. Stop the war. Do not believe the propaganda. They lie to you here.” The woman holding it backed up what was written with cries of “No to war!”. The press service of Channel One commented:
“On the air of the Vremya program, there really was an incident with an outsider in the frame. An audit is underway.”
An outsider on the air turned out to be Channel One editor Marina Ovchinnikova, reports bb.lv. Before her action, she recorded an appeal:
“What is happening in Ukraine now is a crime. And Russia is an aggressor country. And only one person is responsible for this crime. And this person is Vladimir Putin. My father is Ukrainian, my mother is Russian. And they have never been enemies, and this necklace on my neck (in the colors of the Russian and Ukrainian flags) is a symbol of the fact that Russia must immediately stop the fratricidal war, and our fraternal peoples will still be able to reconcile.
Unfortunately, in recent years I have been working on Channel One, doing Kremlin propaganda, and I am now very ashamed of it. It’s a shame for letting me tell lies from the TV screen. I’m ashamed that I allowed to zombify Russian people. We kept silent in 2014, when all this was just beginning. We didn’t go out to rallies when the Kremlin poisoned Navalny. We just silently watched this anti-human regime. And now the whole world has turned its back on us. And ten more generations of our descendants will not be washed away from the shame of this fratricidal war.”
According to TASS“The girl can be involved in actions, including under Article 20.3.3. of the Code of Administrative Offenses (“Public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces by the Russian Federation in order to protect the interests of the Russian Federation and its citizens, the circulation of peace and security”)” , the source said.
According to him, the girl is currently detained. The source clarified that Marina Ovsyannikova works as an editor on Channel One, she is currently in the police department in the Ostankino district police department.
