The woman who suddenly interrupted a live newscast by holding a sign which read ‘NO WAR! Stop the war! Don’t believe propaganda! They’re lying to you!’ has been identified as Marina Ovsyannikova, a Russian state-TV Channel One employee.

Ovsyannikova was immediately sacked from working as an editor at the network. She was arrested and quickly charged to court with organizing an unauthorized public event (a misdemeanor offence.)

Before storming the Monday broadcast, she shared a pre-recorded video to social media in which told the Russian public: “What is going on in Ukraine now is a crime, and Russia is the aggressor. The responsibility for this aggression lies only on one person and that person is Vladimir Putin.”

Ovsyannikova, whose father is Ukrainian and her mother is Russian, has apologized for working on Kremlin propaganda.

She said “unfortunately, I have been working at Channel One during recent years, working on Kremlin propaganda, and now I am very ashamed. I’m ashamed that I’ve allowed the lies to be said on TV screens. I am ashamed that I let the Russian people be zombified,”

Kevin Rothrock, a fellow journalist said Ovsyannikova had been detained and questioned for 14 hours.

The next day, she appeared in court where she was found guilty as charged. The Russian court fined the anti-war protester 30,000 roubles which is about $400
