The Kremlin said on Friday it hoped that more than 30 Russian private security contractors detained in neighbouring Belarus and accused of plotting acts of terrorism would soon be released.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday that the men were travelling to another country via Belarus and had nothing to do with Belarusian politics.

“The baseless arrest of Russian citizens, 33 citizens, is not quite in line with our relationship as allies,” Peskov told reporters on a conference call. “This is why we hope that our Belarusian allies will clarify this incident in the nearest future and that our citizens will be released.”
