“Stop the war. Do not believe the propaganda that they are lying here,” the board wrote. “Russians against war,” says the last line of the sign in English.
OVD-Info, an anti-human rights watchdog, said that Maria Ovsyanikova, a woman who had committed this heinous act, had been identified as an employee of Russia’s Channel One. The content of the store is strictly regulated by the Russian government.
The woman with Ovsyannikova’s identity could not be verified by CNN independently, but the photos on social media profiles with her name matched the woman seen on the screen.
The Russian state news agency TASS confirmed OVD-Info’s statement quoting a source and said he could face trial.
Ovsyannikova’s friends told OVD-information that he was at the Ostankino police station in Moscow, but his lawyer Dmitry Zhakvadov later told CNN that he could not be located.
“We have not found her now, but we are still looking for her,” Djokovic said.
OVD-Info received a video of what Ovsyannikova allegedly did before interfering with the news broadcast.
“What is happening in Ukraine now is a crime. Russia is an occupier. The responsibility for this occupation lies in the conscience of one and the same person. Ukrainian, and his mother Russian.
“Unfortunately, for the past few years, I have been working on Channel One and campaigning for the Kremlin. Now I’m so ashamed to think about it,” he says in the video. “Shame on you for allowing the Russian people to zombie, and shame on me for allowing me to tell lies from the TV screens.”
“I am ashamed that we were silent in 2014. When all this began, the reference to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014, as a result of which Crimea was annexed.” We did not go to rallies when the Kremlin poisoned Navalny. Has turned us on forever, and will not wash away ten more generations of our descendants. The shame of this fratricidal war. “
“We the Russian people, thinking and intelligent, it is only in our power to stop this madness,” he says. “Go to the rallies, don’t be afraid! They can’t displace us all!”
The interruption videos were quickly posted on social media after being aired. Russia received CNN video from the live feed of Channel One VK’s profile.
Within minutes, that live feed was removed.
