MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. Moscow regards media publications about an alleged row with diplomats in Prague as distorted understanding of relations between Russia and the Czech Republic, a Russian Foreign Ministry official said.
"Those who spread such sort of rumors in the media distort the understanding of the condition of Russian-Czech relations," he said.
"The Czech media do have a lot of speculation but it should be admitted that the Russian-Czech relations do have visa problems, and these problems were not initiated by us," the official said.
Earlier, Czech media said the country’s special services had allegedly charged three Russian diplomats with spying. Thus, the Czech magazine Respekt said that this was the reason why one Russian embassy officer had been denied permit to continue his work in the country and another one had been denied an entry visa by the Czech embassy in Moscow.
