RT head: Belarus releases two Russian journalists

Two stringers working for RT's Ruptly were released from detention in Belarus on Thursday, RT Editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan (pictured) confirmed on Telegram.

The journalists had been arrested in Belarus while they were covering the presidential elections in the country where protests have been taking place ever since it was announced that incumbent President Aleksander Lukashenko won with around 80% of the vote.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on Belarus to release the journalists.
