MOSCOW, July 19. /TASS/. Reporter of the Moscow-based channel REN TV Valentin Trushnin, who was detained in Istanbul airport on Monday night upon arrival from the Azerbaijani capital Baku, is in the airport's transit zone at the moment awaiting deportation.
"Some information indicates he will be deported at 09:00 hours Moscow Standard Time and his cell phone will also be returned to him then," the channel said in a report on the situation. "The local authorities have told us he feels OK."
It said Trushnin supposedly was on the list of individuals who the Turkish authorities had placed on a stop list.
The REN TV crew Valentin Trushnin was detained in Istanbul airport on Monday night upon arrival from Baku. The cameraman, Mikhail Fomichov, was not allowed to cross the Turkish border and was put on a return flight to Baku right away.
Trushnin was detained somewhat later. He managed to send a message to the channel's editorial office saying he was being searched at the airport and his documents had been taken away from him.
Trushnin and Fomichov have more than once covered events in eastern Ukraine and the Russian Aerospace Force's operation in Syria.
