Russia Today anchor Abby Martin used the last few minutes of her “Breaking The Set” broadcast last night to speak out against Russia’s military action against Ukraine.
In the video below, Martin, who originally hails from Washington DC, slams the media, saying that the coverage she has seen of Ukraine has been “truly disappointing and ripe with disinformation.”

“What Russia did is wrong,” she concluded.
