And an adviser to Ukraine's president has also replied: The translation is pasted below: 17:58:26 TV journalist who protested against the war has 'escaped house arrest' Russian TV journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, famous for her on-air protest against Russia's war in Ukraine, has been put on Moscow's wanted list after her ex-husband reported she had escaped from pre-trial house arrest. Ms Ovsyannikova, 44, was given two months' house arrest in August, and faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty of"spreading fake news about Russia's armed forces". Western governments and Kyiv said the votes breached international law and were non-representative.

Mr Yanchenko was a Soviet paratrooper between 1966 and 1969 and lost his legs and fingers to gangrene. He drove his electric mobility cart through Kherson, his home for 57 years, with a speaker at his side playing Ukraine's national anthem. He also said the abduction of the director-general of Ukraine's Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was an act of Russian terror. He raised the equivalent of about £14,500 in six months before becoming concerned for his safety in the Russian-controlled region. "It's not just generosity.

Some of the cash has been inadvertently donated by Russian soldiers. It has been used by a Ukrainian group to buy sniper scopes, rifle accessories, clothing and vehicles to ferry Ukrainian troops to frontlines. Mr Yanchenko said:"Sometimes I would meet orcs (Russians) who would actually put money in my pail. I asked the soldiers:"How confident are you about retaking Severodonetsk, Lysychansk?" One replied:"100%.

"Maybe it was because I am handicapped. "I would start (each morning) on my street. "You go out, but you don't know if you are returning home. So tearing down the Russian flags inside Lyman is delivered with particular relish." Mr Yanchenko has been trying to support Ukrainian soldiers since Russia-backed separatists seized parts of eastern Ukraine in 2014. He and his friends organised a benefit concert and have also been collecting food, clothing and other supplies.

Still dressed in a Soviet paratrooper jersey, he has no plans to hang up his money pail. Now they're pushing forward. "I cannot punish them myself. I don't have that possibility. But I want to do something," he said. They are surrounded, they will be pushed back and the road to Lysychansk will be opened. Due to your consent preferences, you’re not able to view this.
