A Russian television editor interrupted a live broadcast to protest the conflict in Ukraine. Marina Ovsyannikova held a sign on Channel One, a Russian state-run network, that read, “NO WAR. Stop the war. Don't believe the propaganda. They're lying to you here.” Ovsyannikova released a video explaining her protest prior to going on air. She said she is ashamed, “that I allowed lies to be told from TV screens, that I allowed Russian people to be zombified.”
