Meet Marina Ovsyannikova who Stood against Russia’s Evil side on Live TV

The Russian Journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, an editor of state-owned Channel 1 fears for her life as she protested against the ongoing war with the sign “No War”. The courageous Journalist ambushed a live bulletin on Monday.

Marina stated that the Russians are conducting a gruesome “special military operation” to paint Ukraine as a Neo-Nazi group. She continued to unravel the evil side of her own country. She also mentioned that the Russian authorities continue to spread propaganda in their own country. Marina mentioned how the media lies about this ongoing war.

Who is Marina Ovsyannikova?

Marina Ovsyannikova is a 44-year old journalist and producer at the state-owned Channel 1 Russia. She graduated from the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) in 2005. She went on attending Kuban State University in Krasnodar, southern Russia.

The 41-year-old journalist is born to a Ukrainian mother and a Russian father. She reveals that her parents are not at war and that this war is baseless. Marina now fears her life and the whole world is praying for her safety.

The New Law

As per a new Russian law passed on 4 March 2022, it is illegal for anyone to protest against the ongoing war in Ukraine. Any person who tries to denounce Kremlin shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment of 15 years.

The new law comes in the wake of Putin’s evil acts in Ukraine. Marina was detained following her protest and was questioned for 14 hours. However, she pleaded “not guilty” for organizing an “unauthorised public event”.

About Marina’s video

Marina has been released but faces a fine of 30,000 roubles ($280)  for a video wherein she called out the Russian to protest against the brutal war. She stated in the video that only they have the power to “stop this madness”. Here detainment comes as a result of trying to portray the real face of her own government.

Human rights attorney Pavel Chikov wrote on Twitter “Marina’s whereabouts have still not been established yet. She has been detained for more than 12 hours. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation is conducting a pre-investigation check against Ovsyannikova, a TASS source reports. The pre-investigation check does not provide grounds for detention and imprisonment.”

The half-Russian, half-Ukrainian stated that she is ashamed of lying on TV at the behest of Putin’s evil behaviour against the Ukrainians. Now, Marina has stormed the Russian court. Her lawyers stated that her family was unable to trace her for several hours as she was detained.

The editor and producer stated “It was my anti-war decision. I made this decision by myself because I don’t like Russia starting this invasion. It was really terrible.” Social media is calling her courageous for her righteousness. 


A word from Ukraine

Marina’s protest was welcomed by the Ukrainians who struggle for their life at the behest of Putin’s military actions in the country. The Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy released a video  wherein he said:

“I’m thankful to those Russians who don’t stop trying to deliver the truth, who are fighting against disinformation and tell real facts to their friends and families, and personally to that woman who went in the studio of Channel One with an anti-war poster.”

Some people however continue to support Russia blindfolded without any rhyme or reason. Have a look at this tweet:


Now that the matter has reached the court, it is possible that the Putin regime could put her behind bars for 15 years in the wake of this new legislation. We don’t know what her future holds, but one thing is sure, Marina did the right thing as she revealed the Russian atrocities against Ukraine. It does not make her an anti-national. Did she inspire you? Let me know your thoughts.
