Deepest respect for Marina Ovsyannikova

Picture taken from Russian journalist disrupts state TV broadcast to protest against Ukraine war

"On Monday evening, the journalist stormed the set of the live telecast of the evening news, exclaiming, “Stop the war. No to war. Don’t believe the propaganda," she continued, holding a sign. "They’re lying to you here. Russians against the war” was written on the sign in English."

As the Russian invasion of the Ukraine is not going as fast as expected and the majority of the population is separated from out of Russia information about the war, respect to Marina for taking this action in a live show. So far she has only received a fine, but this can quickly change to a prison sentence. We will see/hear or maybe not, depending how Russia will be handling this case.

Our work for human dignity is often lonely, and almost always an uphill climb. At times, our efforts are misunderstood, and we are mistaken for the enemy. There has been a clear erosion of respect for U.N. blue and our impartiality.” -- Ban Ki-moon, taken from 75 Powerful Respect Quotes
