News presenter and correspondent Zhanna Agalakova was one of the most famous faces on Russian state television until March, when she quit her job over the war in Ukraine. Agalakova, who is now in hiding, tells the BBC's Newsnight that Russian TV is a "brainwashing machine" and she wishes people would switch it off. "It's like two different planets," she says, contrasting Russian TV telling viewers Vladimir Putin's invading forces are being cheered and handed flowers with the images of death and tragedy in Ukraine seen by viewers the rest of the world.
