Marina Ovsyannikova went missing after she staged an anti-war protest on Russian TV and then went away.

People are afraid for Marina. Hero Marina Ovsyannikova went "missing" after slamming Putin on TV in a TV stunt. She faces 15 years in prison.

Her lawyers say she has gone missing. She staged a live protest on TV to criticize Vladimir Putin's war in Ukraine, and she did it on live TV, too.

She called the war criminal and said that Russia was the one who started it in a video before she stormed the country's top news show.

They're not telling the truth: The 43-year-old woman held up a sign that said, "They're lying to you." She did this during her employer's top news show.

The mother-of-two was held right away at the channel's headquarters, but her lawyers haven't been able to see her because they think she's being held in a secret place.

It says that, according to a Russian human rights group, the prosecutor's office has started working on a case against Marina. Her lawyers have been working with the group.

"No War" was written on a sign that she held up as she stormed her employer's top news show.

It's bad that they said "where she is is still unknown."

Danill Berman, one of her lawyers, said he thought she would be held for 15 days before being arrested on a criminal charge with a long prison sentence possible.

Marina was first held for three hours in the duty room at the channel's Ostankino TV Center headquarters in Moscow. She was then released.

Lawyer Pavel Chikov said today: "Marina hasn't been found yet."

She has been held for more than 12 hours now.

Article 207.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation says that if she spreads false information about how the Russian Federation Armed Forces are used in public, she could be charged.

The maximum sentence for the crime is 15 years in prison.

Before she did her stunt, she recorded a message in which she attacked Putin and said, "They can't jail us all."

On her show, Marina recorded a message in which she slammed Vladimir Putin in the face.

When she made the video, she changed her Facebook picture to show her and an icon of a dove with an olive branch, which she had put up around when she made the video.

When Marina saw the video, she said: "What's going on in Ukraine is a crime, and Russia is the one who's trying to get it."

In this case, only one person is to blame. It is Vladimir Putin.

"My father is from Ukraine and my mother is from Russia, but they were never enemies. They never fought."

The necklace I have on my neck is a sign that Russia must stop this war right away, and that our brother peoples can still come together.

In the past few years I have worked at Channel One, where I have been working on Kremlin propaganda.

Afterwards, I was ashamed of that. Ashamed that I let lies be spoken on the TV screen. "I'm ashamed that I let the Russian people become zombies," I said.

People in Russia were quiet in 2014 when the country took Crimea and did not protest when the Kremlin poisoned Alexei Navalny.

"We just sat and watched this cruel regime." Everybody has turned away from us now. And for another ten generations, our descendants will not be able to get rid of the shame of this brother-killing war.

Marina's father is from Ukraine and her mother is from Russia.

'STOP THIS CRAZY'

We are Russian people: we think, and we are smart. It is up to us to stop all of this crazy.

"Come out to defend. Don't be afraid of anything. They can't keep us all in prison.

Marina interrupted Russia's most famous newsreader, 60-year-old Ekaterina Andreeva, when she was on a TV show that had been spouting anti-Ukrainian and anti-Western rhetoric recently. This is what Marina said.

After a few seconds of her being seen and heard on the screen, the channel switched to a different report and took her off the screen.

Ukraine's President, Volodymyr Zelensky, thanked Marina in a video message he sent out at night.

said: "I am grateful for those Russians who do not give up on trying to get the truth out there."

To the woman who came into the studio of Channel One with a poster against the war, I want to say thank you.

Russia state television employee Marina Ovsyannikova, who ran on to the set of a live broadcast shouting: ‘Stop the war. No to war’, also made a pre-recorded video statement.

Crackdown by Kremlin

On Twitter, Kira Yarmysh, a spokeswoman for Alexei Navalny, said: "Wow, that girl is really cool."

People in the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazetta blurred out Ovsyannikova's name because of strict rules about what people can and can't say.

Protesters against the war have been arrested by the Russian police at least 14,911 times.

Over 800 people were arrested yesterday alone.

Putin has also tried to stop the free press by shutting down independent news outlets, like the New York Times.

They have to call his war in Ukraine a "special military operation," not an invasion.
