‘Russia Today’ Anchor Abby Martin Blasts Russia’s Occupation of Ukraine in On-Air Tirade: VIDEO


Russia Today anchor Abby Martin took a moment at the end of her broadcast to speak out against Russia's occupation of Ukraine.

Said Martin:

"Just because I work here for RT doesn't mean I don't have editorial independence and I can't stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation's affairs. What Russia did was wrong..."

Martin called the coverage of what Russia is doing in Ukraine "truly disappointing" and "rife with disinformation." She called the Ukrainian people "the real losers here."


RT is funded by the federal budget of Russia through the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
