As Russia wages war in Ukraine, the Campaign podcast takes a look at how the advertising industry is supporting staff in the region and whether brands in the UK should pull advertising against news coverage of the conflict. Plus, a powerful piece of creative from a Ukrainian agency.

Campaign's media editor Arvind Hickman is joined by work and inspiration editor Imogen Watson, MullenLowe Group UK chief executive Jeremy Hine and the7stars owner Jenny Biggam.

Please note: this podcast was recorded prior to WPP ceasing operations in Russia.
