Zhanna Agalakova quit her job as a journalist for Channel One - a Russian state-controlled TV channel - over the invasion of Ukraine in March.

She's now in hiding.

In an interview with BBC Newsnight, she urged people in Russia to switch off their TVs if they wanted the truth about the war in Ukraine.

"It's a brainwashing machine," she says.

She talks to David Grossman about censorship at the state-controlled broadcaster and whether she should have resigned from her job sooner.
