German newspaper Die Welt has hired as a correspondent Marina Ovsyannikova, the Russian journalist who broke onto a live news broadcast on Russian state television in protest against the Ukraine war, its owner Axel Springer said, APA reports citing The Guardian.

Ovsyannikova, 43, will report for the newspaper as well as for Die Welt’s TV news channel, including from Ukraine and Russia, Springer said.

The former editor at Russia’s state Channel One “defended the most important journalistic ethics despite the threat of state repression” with her on-air protest, Welt Group editor-in-chief Ulf Porschardt said in a statement.
