The woman, who had painted the colours of the Ukrainian flag on her body, also posed for photographs before being led off by security guards. She had fell on her knees screaming and was soon covered with a coat by the security guards. The protest had crashed the red carpet premiere of George Miller's 'Three Thousand Years of Longing' on Friday.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had earlier said that hundreds of rape cases, including sexual assaults of small children, were reported in areas previously occupied by Russian troops. He had also launched a video appeal for aid for his country at the Cannes opening ceremony.
