RELATIONSHIT NOT RELATIONSHIP: Involved since 1995(specialist also in Chechen war as far as misleading on issues), Russian KGB have had well prepared for Marina Ovsyannikova exactly what you see took place in respect to her protest and whatever is readied for her to perform


Navalny disappeared for same reasons(if Putin wouldn't succeed blah blah) - Marina Ovsyannikova was/is everything but naive and perhaps the best of all, her husband expressed concern during MK Ultra about her immigrating out of Russia due to what would be his employment at RT.COM.....Marina Ovsyannikova is a part of well coordinated Russian disinformation net which will play on souls of Ukrainians with other instruments, but just as lethal or even more than Vladimir Putin's bombs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Ovsyannikova article on Wikipedia ends with whatever hot Ukraine into total destruction during last 100 years and not since  2014...LAST 100 YEARS !!!! Navalny !!???? Navalny figured out long ago Crimea is part of Russia, but is just as mistaken about it as Ovsyannikova is about special Ukrainian Russian relationship(yes relationshit - not relationship).

Sure a beauty, but beauty in whose hands....her husband was completely cool about her leaving in the future...she further had agreement with German outlet to visit me and would remain in Germany if I would decline to get involved with Putin. Putin will search for way into Europe - Putin's propaganda machinery will do its best to reintroduce via daily world of lies a softer more human side of the "Russian Ukrainian" relations from Russian perspective....Kremlin's plan is to restart war every here and then till Ukraine is completely gone...a lots of love and hate between Slavs till all integrate back into one happy concentration camp known as USSR and Yugoslavia. What love and hate can and did...

Marina Vladimirovna Ovsyannikova (RussianМари́на Влади́мировна Овся́нникова ;[1][2] née Tkachuk (Ткачу́к);[3] born 1978)[4] is a Russian journalist who was employed on the Channel One Russia TV channel.[5] She worked for Russia's main evening newscast Vremya on Channel One since the beginning of the 2000s,[6][7] later describing her role as "producing Kremlin propaganda".[8]

In 2022, she interrupted a broadcast of Vremya to protest against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which made international news headlines. She was arrested, held without access to her lawyer, fined 30,000 rubles (150 dollars at the time), and later released.

As of early October 2022, she is wanted by the Russian justice system after escaping her pre-trial house arrest; her lawyer says that she fled to Europe.[9]

Early life and career[edit]

Ovsyannikova was born in 1978 in Odesa, (Soviet) Ukraine.[7] Her mother is Russian, and her father is Ukrainian.[10] She lived with her mother in Grozny until the start of the Chechen War, but then they moved to Krasnodar.[11] As a child, she practiced swimming and artistic gymnastics.[3] Her swimming team won the university level Krasnodar championship competitions.[3]

Ovsyannikova graduated from the Kuban State University and later from the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA). She worked for the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK). Since 1997, she was a journalist for the "Kuban" TV channel (a regional subsidiary of VGTRK), and a favorite of its head Vladimir Runov, who is claimed to have helped her enter RANEPA.[7]

At the start of the 2000s, after moving to Moscow, she was hired for Channel One Russia's main evening newscast Vremya, thanks to the protection of her husband Igor Ovsyannikov, now a director in Russia Today.[7] Politico says, "Since 2003, her job was to watch Western news streams and press conferences, and collect excerpts that made the West look bad and Russia look good."[12] The Telegraph described Ovsyannikova during her time at Channel One as a "state mouthpiece" and "the flesh and blood of the Kremlin's propaganda machine". Ovsyannikova retroactively described herself as "having spent many years producing Kremlin propaganda" while working for Channel One.[8]

Anti-war protests[edit]

Ovsyannikova initially supported Putin, but images of the war in Ukraine brought back memories of the war she experienced as a child in Chechnya. She had planned to protest near the Kremlin, but later decided it was not very useful.[13]

On 14 March 2022, during a live broadcast related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine on the evening news programme Vremya, which had millions of viewers, she appeared behind the news anchor, Ekaterina Andreeva, carrying a poster stating in a mix of Russian and English:[14][15]

Ukraine No War Russia
Остановите войну, не верьте пропаганде, здесь вам врут.
[Stop the war, don't believe the propaganda, here you are being lied to.]
Russians against war

Ovsyannikova shouted:

Остановите войну! Нет войне! [Stop the war! No war!]

After a few seconds, the broadcast cut away to a recorded segment.[16][14][15] The recording of the news program was not available for download, which is uncommon for this TV channel.[16][17][18] The protest was unusual as the state-operated program does not deviate from the Kremlin line of a "special military operation", and viewers had previously not been told that the Russian invasion of Ukraine was a war.[5]

Pre-recorded message[edit]

After Ovsyannikova's on-air protest, Russian human rights group OVD-Info posted a video she had pre-recorded on Telegram.[19] In the video, she stated that she was "ashamed of working for Kremlin propaganda":[14][15][20][21][22][23][24]

What is happening in Ukraine is a crime. Russia is an aggressor country and the responsibility for this aggression rests on the conscience of only one person. That person is Vladimir Putin. My father is Ukrainian, my mother is Russian, and they've never been enemies. This necklace I'm wearing is a symbol of that fact that Russia must immediately end this fratricidal war and our fraternal peoples will still be able to reconcile. Unfortunately, I've spent the last few years working for Channel One, doing Kremlin propaganda, and I'm very ashamed of this. Ashamed that I allowed lies to be broadcast from TV screens. Ashamed that I allowed others to zombify Russian people. We were silent in 2014 when all this started. We didn't protest when the Kremlin poisoned Navalny. We just silently watched this inhuman regime at work. And now the whole world has turned its back on us. And the next ten generations won't wash away the stain of this fratricidal war. We Russians are thinking and intelligent people. It's in our power alone to stop all this madness. Go protest. Don't be afraid of anything. They can't lock us all away.[21][24][a]


Clips of Ovsyannikova's protest were widely shared around the world and attracted substantial global media coverage.[25]

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked Ovsyannikova during one of his broadcasts.[16][26] French president Emmanuel Macron offered Ovsyannikova protection at the French embassy or through asylum. Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov referred to her protest as "hooliganism".[25][27][28]

Russian opposition politician Lev Shlosberg said, "Five seconds of truth can wash away the dirt of weeks of propaganda." Russian opposition politician Ilya Yashin described Ovsyannikova as a "hero of Russia".[5] The detained Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny lauded Ovsyannikova for her defiance during his final statement in court.[29][30]

The BBC reported that Ovsyannikova's protest had drawn attention to a gradual stream of resignations from Russian state-run TV, with three others emerging within hours.[31]

Kirill Kleimyonov, head of Channel One Russia's news division, accused her of being a "British spy" and said she called the British embassy prior to the onstage protest.[32] The UK Foreign Office said there was no contact prior to the on-screen protest.[33]

Persecutions and activism[edit]

Ovsyannikova was detained and taken to Ostankino police station.[15][34] Her lawyer was not able to contact or even locate her for more than 12 hours. The morning after the broadcast, her whereabouts were still unknown.[35] It was reported Ovsyannikova may face up to 15 years in prison under Russia's disinformation laws about the Ukrainian invasion.[36]

Later on 15 March, the Twitter account of Kevin Rothrock, an editor at Meduza, posted a picture showing Ovsyannikova with Anton Gashinsky, a human rights lawyer, in court.[37] For the video posted on Telegram, Ovsyannikova was charged with organizing an unauthorized public event and fined 30,000 rubles ($280, £200 or €255).[19][38] Russian state news agency TASS reported that Russia's Investigative Committee was also investigating Ovsyannikova for the on-air protest on charges of publicly spreading "false information" about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.[39][19] Under a new law passed on 4 March, she could be prosecuted for calling the invasion of Ukraine a war instead of the government's euphemism "special military operation" and sentenced to up to 15 years in prison.[15][19][40]

On 17 March, Ovsyannikova quit her job on Channel One Russia.[41] She stated that she rejected asylum in France, and was to stay in Russia with her children.[42]

It was announced on 11 April 2022, that Ovsyannikova had accepted, with immediate effect, work as a freelance correspondent for Axel Springer SE's German newspaper Die Welt, covering Russia and Ukraine.[43][44][45] Shortly after she moved to Berlin, Germany, leaving her children behind in Russia as her ex-husband did not give her permission to take the children out of the country.[46]

On 25 May 2022, during the annual Oslo Freedom Forum in OsloNorway, Ovsyannikova received the Václav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent. This prize is given to honor "those who, with bravery and ingenuity, unmask the lies of dictatorship, and who put forth work that exemplifies tremendous courage and creativity".[47]

Between 27 and 31 May 2022, Ovsyannikova visited Ukraine as a freelance correspondent for Die Welt. The visit caused public uproar, which forced Die Welt to abort the visit and evacuate Ovsyannikova from the country.[48]

After her contract with Die Welt expired, Ovsyannikova returned to Russia.[49] On 15 July 2022, she made a single-person protest at the Sophia Embankment [ru], in front of the Kremlin, with a poster reading "Putin is a murderer. His soldiers are fascists. 352 children died. How many more should die for you to stop?" Two days later, she was arrested and later released.[49][50] On 9 August, a criminal case was started against her due to this event where she was charged with discrediting the military; her home was raided by police and she was detained for questioning. She was later released, after being ordered to spend the night at Moscow police headquarters.[51][52] The next day, she was put under house arrest for two months, until 9 October 2022.[53] However, on 1 October, her husband Igor announced that she had escaped house arrest together with her 11-year-old daughter. Her immediate whereabouts were unknown.[54] On 17 October 2022, Ovsyannikova's lawyer confirmed she had fled Russia "to one of the European countries, where she is now under protection".[9][55] On the same day, Ovsyannikova was restricted of parental rights on her 10 years old daughter and 17 years old son — the court ordered that Ovsyannikova's daughter must live with her father because her mother "is involved in political activity".[56]


News of Ovsyannikova being hired as a correspondent to cover the Russian invasion of Ukraine for Die Welt led to protests in Berlin by the Ukrainian community and war refugees.[why?] The protesters demanded that she be fired, but Die Welt refused to do so, saying that she is "on the right side of history".[57][58] This decision sparked discussion in journalistic circles in Germany and other countries.[59]

In Ukraine, Ovsyannikova is largely regarded just as a propagandist, her appearance on TV was ignored or held against her, and Ukrainian journalists were unhappy with her being awarded prizes. Her press conference in Kyiv in May 2022 was canceled due to the "uproar".[60]

Personal life[edit]

As of 2022, Ovsyannikova lived in New Moscow (the former southwest sector of Moscow Oblast appended to Moscow in 2012) with her two children.[24][61][62] She is married to Igor Ovsyannikov, a television director for RT.[7][63] The couple were reported by one source in March 2022 as being "recently separated".[62] She has relatives in Ukraine, but she does not have much contact with them.[41]
