Marina Ovsyannikova, a former editor at a Russian state TV channel who held up an anti-war poster during a live news broadcast in March, was briefly detained in Moscow on Sunday, her lawyer Dmitry Zakhvatov told CNN on Monday.
Police detained Ovsyannikova for “actions aimed at discrediting the Russian army” after she recorded a video statement on Wednesday, according to Zakhvatov.
Marina Ovsyannikova held a solo protest action opposite the Kremlin Sunday.
According to the photos she shared on her Telegram channel, she held a poster saying, “Putin is a killer. His soldiers are fascists. 352 children died. How many more children have to die for you to stop?”
