The Russian foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that US allegations of a Russian spy ring were "groundless." "In our opinion, such actions are groundless and pursue unseemly aims," a foreign ministry spokesman said, referring to a US Justice Department announcement as well as media reports.

"In any case, it is highly deplorable that all of this is happening against the background of the reset in Russia-US ties announced by the US administration itself."
