MOSCOW, November 1 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said it was special services’ task to spying.
"It's not very pleasant when you are spied on ... so the leaders are angry. I understand them," Medvedev told Reuters.
Medvedev suggested such spying was not unusual, but he added, "It is assumed that it is not done in such an absolutely cynical way".
"Can the situation be calmed? I think it's possible. But to be honest, no assurances will help here," he said.
"What can you say in this situation? 'Sorry, we won't do it anymore' or 'We will not try to listen in on you'? Nobody will believe it," Medvedev said.
