Allegations that Moscow ran a spy ring in the US are baseless and a throwback to the Cold War, a Russian foreign ministry official has said.
The claims had set back attempts by President Barack Obama to reset ties with Moscow, the official added.
The response comes a day after 10 people were arrested in the US.
They are accused of conspiracy to act as unlawful agents of a foreign government, a crime which carries up to five years in prison.

An 11th suspect, named as Christopher R Metsos, was arrested on Tuesday on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, police there said.
They said he was arrested at Larnaca airport as he tried to leave for Budapest and was released on bail pending US extradition proceedings. He is wanted in the US on suspicion of espionage and money laundering, police said.

The FBI announced Monday the arrests of 10 alleged deep cover Russian agents after tracking the suspects for years.
