    As per reports by the media outlets, the woman stripped off all of her clothes as she fell to her knees screaming in front of the assembled photographers, as per eyewitnesses. Security guards were seen rushing over to her and covering her with a coat. The stunt briefly interrupted the parade of guests in evening wear, including Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba

    She had put paint over her body in the colours of the Ukrainian flag and the words 'Stop Raping Us' across her chest and abdomen. The woman also appeared to have blood-red paint over her lower back and legs with the word 'SCUM' written on her back. The incident happened on the red carpet at the premiere of George Miller's 'Three Thousand Years Of Longing', starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton.

    Since the beginning of Russia's millitary operation in Ukraine, there have been numerous reports of Russian soldiers raping Ukrainian civilians. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said last month investigators had received reports of "hundreds of cases of rape" in areas previously occupied by Russian troops, including sexual assaults of small children.
