According to RFE/RL

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus has already deprived of accreditation all workers of the office of correspondent of the “Russia” TV channel in Minsk. The head of the office Andrey Kachura said that in 29 July he was summoned to the MFA and asked to return all accreditation certificates.

MFA workers read to Kachura an outtake from the sitting of the MFA college where the “illegality of activity of “Russia” representation in Belarus was discussed.

So, the correspondent office in Minsk is liquidated. The authorities state that the RTR journalist Zmitser Piatrow raised the number of participants of the protest action that was held by Belarusian opposition on 21 July and demand apologies from the channel. However, “Russia” is unlikely to apologize.
