During the evening broadcast of the Vremya program on Channel One, editor Marina Ovsyannikova (pictured) ran into the studio with an anti-war poster. She was detained. According to Pavel Chikov, head of the Agora* human rights group, Ovsyannikova was taken to the Ostankino police station in Moscow.

According to Kommersant, the editor was detained by employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the North-Eastern District of Moscow.

Chikov clarified in his Telegram channel that, probably, a protocol had been drawn up against the detainee under an article on discrediting the Russian armed forces. Currently, Channel One is checking what happened.

Even before bursting into the studio, Ovsyannikova recorded a video message condemning the special operation that Russia is conducting in Ukraine. She also expressed the hope that "that the fraternal peoples will still be able to reconcile."

Kommersant writes that Ovsyannikova also supported opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who is now in prison.

Recall that last Sunday, March 13, unauthorized protests were held in the country against the conduct of a special operation in Ukraine. According to various sources, from 5 to 11 thousand people took part in them. By the middle of the day, about 370 people had been detained. The day before, St Petersburg University withdrew prepared orders for the expulsion of two students who had previously been detained at uncoordinated actions against the special operation.
