The Basmanny Court arrested Marina Ovsyannikova, ex-employee of Channel One, in absentia. This was reported to RBC in court.
“The petition of the investigator for the election of a preventive measure in the form of detention in relation to Ovsyannikova Marina, accused of committing a crime under paragraph “d” part 2 of article 207.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation for a period of 01 month 29 days, is satisfied, calculating the period from the moment of extradition to territory of the Russian Federation, or from the moment of detention on the territory of Russia.
In early October, Ovsyannikova announced that she was refusing to comply with house arrest and "releases herself" from it. Ovsyannikova noted that she considers herself completely innocent, and the state refuses to comply with its own laws.
On October 1, Ovsyannikova escaped from house arrest, her ex-husband Igor Ovsyannikov told RT. According to him, Ovsyannikova took her 11-year-old daughter with her, the custody of which he is trying to sue. On October 3, the Ministry of Internal Affairs put her on the federal wanted list.
Ovsyannikova gained notoriety in March after appearing live on Channel One behind the back of presenter Ekaterina Andreeva with a poster “Stop the war! Don't believe the propaganda, they lie to you here." After that, she was fined three times under the article on “discrediting” the army (Article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). Then she staged a picket near Red Square with a poster that read: “Putin is a murderer” and mentioned Ukrainian children killed during the war. Because of this, she was placed under house arrest until October 9 in the case of “fake news” about the Russian army (clause “d”, part 2, article 207.3 of the Criminal Code).
