Russian TV worker arrives in court after protest

STORY: Ovsyannikova gained notoriety in March after bursting into a TV studio of her then-employer to denounce Moscow's military action in Ukraine during a live news bulletin.

She was fined after being found guilty of flouting Russian protest laws.

German media outlet Welt hired Ovsyannikova as a correspondent in April.

She returned to Russia in July, writing on Facebook that she was forced to return to defend her parental rights in court against her husband.
