Russia's Foreign Ministry has responded angrily to Georgia's announcement of the arrest of six suspected Russian agents accused of a series of explosions.

The ministry dismissed the accusations as bogus and alleged that the Georgian authorities were behind the explosions.

It said in a statement Thursday that the Georgian claims are aimed at tarnishing Moscow's image before the next round of UN-mediated consultations. The talks are intended to help defuse Russian-Georgian tensions following their 2008 war.
