Marina Ovsyannikova, the protestor who ran onto Russian state TV holding an anti-war sign insists it was her choice to make the bold move. Marina is thought to work at Channel One.

“It was my anti-war decision," she told reporters outside the court where she received her punishment. "I made this decision by myself because I don’t like Russia starting this invasion".

She has since been fined 30,000 roubles (£213) under Russia's protest laws.
