“Kremlin Agent!” Russian Journo Nabs Reporting Gig In Germany & The Internet Erupts With Conspiracy Theories

Russian Journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, who went viral after she interrupted a live news report to protest the war, has now nabbed a journalism job in Germany.

Ovsyannikova bravely interrupted a channel one live news broadcast holding a sign that said, “Stop the war! Don’t believe propaganda! They’re lying to you here!”

It was brave, it was bold and it also made many people worry about what the consequences would be for Ovsyannikova.

Ultimately, she only faced a fine for her actions.

Now, Ovsyannikova seems to have landed on her feet! The BBC has reported German Media outlet, Die Welt.

The brave reporter will work for the news outlet and report on the ongoing war.

BBC reported that editor-in-chief of Welt Group, Ulf Porschardt, said that Ovsyannikova’s on-air protest “defended the most important journalistic ethics – despite the threat of state repression”.

“I am excited to be working with her.”

However, in true Twitter fashion, Twitter has had mixed reactions to the announcement even offering some conspiracy theories.

Here at B&T, we just see Ovsyannikova as a hero.
