MOSCOW - An attempt by a US diplomat to recruit a Russian agent for the Central Intelligence Agency is an impediment to efforts to improve US-Russian relations, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Wednesday.

In the first Kremlin comment on the detention and expulsion of the diplomat, spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Itar-Tass news agency that the incident was regretful. But he did not threaten any further action over the incident.
