Marina Ovsyannikova Wiki – Marina Ovsyannikova  Biography

Russia has placed Marina Ovsyannikova, the former state television editor who interrupted a news broadcast to protest the Ukraine war, on a wanted list after she reportedly escaped house arrest. Ovsyannikova, 44, born in Ukraine, drew international attention in March after she stormed a studio of Channel One, her then-employer, to denounce the war in Ukraine during a live news broadcast, holding up a sign reading “no to war”.

At the time she was fined 30,000 rubles (£460) for circumventing protest laws. Ovsyannikova continued to protest against the war and was charged in August with spreading false information about the Russian military for holding a sign reading “Putin is a murderer, his soldiers are fascists” during a solo protest on the Moskva River embankment in front of the Kremlin.

She was subsequently placed under house arrest pending trial and faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted. On Saturday, Ovsyannikova’s ex-husband said that she had escaped from house arrest along with her young daughter. “Last night, my ex-wife left the place assigned to her by the court and disappeared with my 11-year-old daughter to an unknown address,” said Igor Ovsyannikov, an employee of the state media RT.

Ovsyannikova’s whereabouts are unknown and she did not immediately respond to a request for comment. On Monday, she was added to the Home Office’s online list of fugitives, accompanied by a photograph. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Russia has launched an unprecedented crackdown on protesters, independent media and foreign social networks.

In early March, President Vladimir Putin signed a draconian law imposing a prison sentence of up to 15 years for intentionally spreading “fake” news about the military, effectively criminalizing any public criticism of the war. Hundreds of leading Russian independent journalists and activists have fled the country fearing a wave of government repression.

But the war in Ukraine has also resulted in a steady stream of resignations from Russia’s tightly controlled state television channels. Last month, Zhanna Agalakova, a former Channel One broadcaster who at the time of her resignation in March was the station’s Paris correspondent, announced that she would return the two state medals she received from Putin for her work on the channel.

President, her leadership is leading the country into the abyss,” she Agalakova said in a handwritten note posted on her Facebook page. “I consider his awards to be unacceptable.”
