A woman dressed in the colours of the Ukrainian flag was removed from the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday after she poured fake blood over herself in an apparent anti-war protest.
The incident took place ahead of the premiere of the film Acide by French film director Just Philippot on Sunday evening, at the festival in the south of France.
It was not immediately clear why the demonstration took place at that screening.
The protester, wearing a yellow and blue dress and blue-heeled shoes, appeared to reach into her dress and pull out two capsules of the red substance, before releasing them over her head as she smiled for the cameras. The fake blood pooled onto the steps of the red carpet beneath her.
The woman was then escorted down the stairs by a security guard and away from the event.
