Just in case you’re interested – of course you’re interested! – it’s Mir TV’s Nadezhda Serezhkina doing a live weather report during an outside broadcast in Moscow.
“It looks like we have lost the connection to our correspondent,” said presenter Elina Dashkueva. “We will try to connect with her momentarily.”
Serezhkina was later back on air, saying “no one was injured,” but “the microphone took a bite or two.”
And these are our favourite things people said about it.
Well, she refused to throw it, what was the dog to do?

I love how the camera person keeps filming and the station anchor closes the story. True professions.

Long experience: you are never, ever going to catch a golden who thinks he has your toy.
Best bet is to have a treat on hand so you can offer a trade.

Some people smelled a rat. But we’re with this person.
Even if it’s an April 1 joke it’s still very funny! 😂
