An American anchor working for a state-owned TV station, Russian Today, resigned on air today.

Liz Wahl, in the network's D.C. bureau, said she could no longer be "part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I am resigning."

This comes just one day after Abby Martin, another Russia Today news presenter, denounced Russia's actions live on air. 

She said she "would not sit here and apologize or defend military aggression," before saying her "heart went out" to the Ukrainian people.
