But on the other hand, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has criticized the arrests, by saying that the US authorities are going out of control. The United States and Russia are trying to build ties since the Obama administration took power, for example both countries are trying to sort ways to deal with Iran and North Korea’s nuclear programs.
Moscow on the other hand has accepted that the convicted spies are Russian citizens and the court just stopped before accusing them for espionage, but rather have been charged of staying unregistered as foreign agents in the country.
