Russian Foreign Ministry: There is no spy scandal at all

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that the charges brought against Russian citizens in the United States were not related to intelligence activities, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

"As far as we know, the charges touch upon several citizens of the Russian Federation. These charges, judging by the information that we received from the American side, are criminal in their nature. They do not touch upon any sort of intelligence activity," Ryabkov said, BBCRussian.com reports.

Russian diplomats intend to organize meeting with the individuals suspected of espionage to clear out the situation, reports NTV.

Prosecutors of Brooklyn brought charges against 11 Russian citizens on the allegation of illegal exports of military technologies.
