A bloody protest broke out on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Immediately before the screening of the film “Acide”, a woman wearing a dress in the national colors of Ukraine poured fake blood on herself – in protest against the war in Ukraine.
The woman, who held a small bag of fake blood over her head on the red carpet and then ripped it open, was quickly taken away by security forces. The identity of the woman is not yet known. The activist clearly wanted to set an example for Ukraine in the fight against the Russian invasion. Since the beginning of May, Russia has been attacking Ukraine again with rockets, drones and cruise missiles – in the midst of the country’s preparations for a major offensive against the invasion of Moscow. The capital Kiev was also the target of the nightly air strikes. Eight people were injured, three of whom had to be treated in hospital, the governor of the region, Serghij Lyssak, said on the Telegram news channel. Air defense shot down 15 drones and 4 cruise missiles, he said. Lyssak also published photos of badly damaged homes, businesses and cars. The country’s air force said Monday morning that a Russian Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet and four missiles had been shot down. In addition, 20 so-called kamikaze drones of the Iranian type Shahed-136/131 were taken from the sky. According to the information, Russia fired a total of 16 rockets at the neighboring country.
