‘I wanted to say something from my heart about the ongoing political crisis in Ukraine and Russia’s military occupation. Just because I work here for RT it doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence and I can’t stress enough how strongly I’m against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs. What Russia did is wrong. I really don’t know as much as I should about Ukraine history, the cultural dynamics in the region but what I do know is that military intervention is never the answer and I will not sit here and apologize or defend military aggression,’ Ms Martin said.
