A Russian editor who protested Moscow’s military action in Ukraine during a prime-time news broadcast on state TV was fined and released on Tuesday following a court hearing.

A judge with Moscow’s Ostankinsky district court ordered state TV employee Marina Ovsyannikova to pay a fine of 30,000 rubles ($280, 247 euros) after she barged onto the set of Russia’s most-watched evening news broadcast holding a poster reading “No War”.
