MOSCOW – Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says Moscow expects that a spy scandal won’t hurt Russian-United States relations.The ministry said that it agreed with White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, who said the arrests of 11 alleged spies for Russia would not affect ties.On Tuesday, the ministry admitted that some of the suspected spies arrested in the United States are Russian citizens, but claimed they did nothing to hurt US interests. It said Russia was counting on the US “to show proper understanding”, taking into account the positive ties between Moscow and Washington now. (AP)
