WorldRussiaRussian police conducts raid at house of Marina Ovsyannikova
Russian police have recently conducted a raid at the house of Marina Ovsyannikova, the former state television producer who has opposed the war in Ukraine in a live news broadcast.
Ovsyannikova took it to the Telegram messaging app, stating that, “At 6 in the morning while I was still sleeping, several employees of the Investigative Committee & the police came into my house. They have shown me the orders for conducting the raid.”
She added, “They threatened my little daughter. Now I am being taken to the Investigative Committee.”
Ovsyannikova, 44, became well renowned in Russia and overseas in March following performing anti-war picket in a piece of primetime news broadcast on Russia’s state-controlled Channel one, where she was employed as a producer at the time.
The raids on Wednesday were directly linked to a criminal case on disturbing “fakes” about the Russian Armed Forces, a charge of crime which comprises of punishment by up to 15 years in prison.
The case was reopened over Ovsyannikova’s solo protest near the Kremlin in July where she held a poster adding, “How many more children must be killed in Ukraine before you stop?”
Meanwhile, a lawyer with the OVD-Info human rights watchdog, Dmitry Zakhvatov, who is showing Ovsyannikova, stated the police started looking into her home before her legal representative.
Ovsyannikova has been fined twice before for her anti-war actions.
In July, Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court ordered her to pay 50,000 rubles ($816) for “discrediting” the Russian Armed Forces in an interview she gave during a trial against opposition politician Ilya Yashin.
