“In good hands”. Former editor-in-chief of Channel One Marina Ovsyannikova spoke about the fate of Alexei Moskalev, who escaped from house arrest


Aleksey Moskalev, a resident of the Tula region, sentenced to two years for “fake news” about the Russian army, but who escaped house arrest on the eve of sentencing, is “in good hands, everything will be fine for him”. ” About this in my telegram channel reported Marina Ovsyannikova, former editor-in-chief of Channel One.

Marina Ovsyannikova had also escaped from house arrest because of the “false” case about the Russian army. The woman rose to fame after appearing with a pacifist poster on the air of the Vremya show in March 2022. After that, she left Russia, but returned to pick up her 11-year-old daughter. At the same time, in October 2022, the capital’s Cheryomushkinsky district court limited Ovsyannikova to parental rights and decided that her daughter should live with her ex-husband. Now the journalist with her daughter is in France.

In a conversation with SOTAvision Ovsyannikov clarified that he knows the people who helped Moskalev escape. At the same time, she asked “to be patient so as not to jinx it”. On Khodorkovsky* Live, an ex-Channel One employee said the man is now in Russia, but “people are looking for ways to get him to a safe place”. Activists who helped the family reported publication “7×7” that information about the whereabouts of Moskalev “is even dangerous to know.”

On the afternoon of March 28, the Efremovskiy district court of the Tula region sentenced Aleksey Moskalev to two years in prison for “discrediting” the Russian military due to comments on social networks. The man did not show up for the meeting, the court’s press secretary said he had escaped from house arrest. Moskalev’s lawyer said he learned of his client’s escape in the courtroom.

Aleksey Moskalev, a single father of Efremov, was arrested in early March over comments on social media in which he condemned the military operation in Ukraine. Law enforcement became interested in the family after Moskalev’s daughter drew an anti-war poster during a school art class. After that, FSB agents came to the educational institution. Shortly after, a report of “discredit” is drawn up against his father and a fine is imposed on him.

In December 2022, a criminal case was opened against Moskalev under the same article, the girl was taken away by the guardianship authorities. Now the girl is still in a social institution.
