    The US authorities decision to clear RT reporter Alexander Rubinstein, detained in the United States, of all charges, including the incitement of riots, was the only right way to resolve the situation, RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Rubinstein, along with Evan Engel of Vocativ and freelance journalist Aaron Cantu, was arrested while covering the protests in Washington, DC, ahead of the January 20 inauguration of US President Donald Trump.

    "This was the only right decision in this situation. We are very glad for Alex," Simonyan said, as quoted by RT's press service.

    On Monday, the broadcaster said that Rubenstein had been cleared of all charges in the United States.
