ANO TV Novosti, an organization that is primarily funded by a Russian government grant, is the principal shareholder in both Ruptly and RT.[13]

In February 2014, Ruptly was one of the first agencies to use drones to capture news footage when it used them in its coverage of the civil unrest in Ukraine.[14]

In 2017, Ruptly introduced 360-degree video content, and provided the first panoramic view of Earth from the International Space Station.[14]

It serves over 1,400 clients globally, including large media groups, broadcast networks, video bloggers and online publishers; clients have included Al Jazeera, CBS, NHK, and online publishers such as LADbible.[15] It now also caters to smaller organizations with lower budgets such as Ruptly PASS.[16] In 2018, it announced a merger with RT Digital.[17]
