While the news bulletin was broadcast on the Channel 1 television channel, a person stood behind the presenter Ekaterina Andreeva and unfurled a banner saying “no to war”. The banner read, “Stop the war. Do not believe the propaganda. They are lying to you here”.
After the banner was opened, the live broadcast was interrupted and other images were given. It is not yet known who the protesting woman is or if she is a channel employee.
