Cannes: Incessant rape by the Russian troops on Ukrainian women is continuing without any heckle. Not to talk of women, even underage girls are being mercilessly raped and sexually exploited. Many women have chopped off their hair to avoid rape. Ukrainian women are protesting against rapes taking place in their country.

At the prestigious Cannes film festival, a woman ran on red carpet in the presence of seven celebrities to protest against the sexual violence committed by the Russian army in Ukraine. In the short video, the woman comes on stage in a semi-nude position. Her lower body part was painted in the colours of the Ukrainian flag with the words “Stop Raping Us.” She reached the red carpet before security staff escorted her off. The film festival got underway in Cannes on May 17.

The stunt briefly interrupted the parade of guests in evening wear, including Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba, attending the premiere of their film “Three Thousand Years of Longing” by George Miller.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said last month that investigators had received reports of “hundreds of cases of rape” in areas previously occupied by Russian troops, including sexual assaults of small children.

At the Cannes opening ceremony on Tuesday, Zelensky, a former actor, launched a video appeal for aid for his country.

The war has already been a major theme at the festival, with a special screening on Thursday of “Mariupolis 2,” a documentary by Lithuanian director Mantas Kvedaravicius, who was killed in Ukraine last month—reportedly by Russian forces.

Ukraine’s struggling film-makers will get a special day at the industry marketplace on Saturday, and their noted director, Sergei Loznitsa, will show “The Natural History of Destruction,” about the bombing of German cities in World War II.
