A feminist protester enters the Cannes festival to protest “rape” in Ukraine
A topless activist broke a red carpet in Kane on Friday in protest of allegations of sexual violence against Ukrainian women in the ongoing conflict between Kyiv and Moscow. The incident took place before the screening of George Miller’s film ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’.
The worker, who apparently posed as one of the guests, suddenly walked the red carpet before taking off his clothes, showing footage of the scene. She was wearing nothing but red underwear with the color and sound of the Ukrainian flag. “Stop raping us” Painted across her chest and abdomen. The screaming protester was immediately escorted by security forces and taken away.
Hard-line feminist group SCUM has claimed responsibility for the stunt, saying on Twitter that the performance was intended. “Condemnation of sexual violence against Ukrainian women during the war.”
Although little is known about the group behind the protests, its name is a clear consensus for the 1960s. “SCUM Manifesto” By Valerie Solanas, a fierce American feminist. The identity of the red carpet destroyer was not immediately known, and it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Since Moscow launched a major offensive against Ukraine, Kyiv officials have repeatedly blamed Russia. “Crime.”
Russia invaded the neighboring country in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the first Minsk agreement, signed in 2014, and the final recognition of Moscow’s Donetsk and Lugansk’s Donbas republics. The German- and French-brokerage protocols were designed to give special status to isolated territories within the Ukrainian state.
The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine formally declare itself a neutral state that would never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kyiv has insisted that the Russian invasion was completely unpopular and has denied claims that it is planning to forcibly retake the two republics.
