Moscow Court puts Russian journalist Ovsyannikova under house arrest

Moscow: The Basmanny District Court of Moscow on Thursday ruled to place Russian journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, accused of spreading false information about the Russian military, under house arrest.
“To satisfy the petition of the investigator, to choose a measure of restraint in the form of house arrest,” the judge said.
Ovsyannikova made headlines in March after she appeared live on television with a pacifist poster that criticized the conflict in Ukraine. She was promptly fired from Channel One and briefly hired by the German newspaper Welt’s office in Moscow. She staged a one-person picket on near the Kremlin in July.
