"Lately, a number of EU media outlets have launched a propaganda campaign against Russia's alleged 'complicity' in aggravating the migration crisis sweeping over the European Union. As always, this information is not only unsupported by actual facts, but also directly contradicts them," the ministry said in a statement.
"However, there is no reason to be surprised, as these baseless allegations fit very well into the short-sighted political course taken on by certain European circles and the 'agitprop' outlets under their control, aiming to demonize Russia and accuse it of all mortal sins," the statement continues.
According to the ministry, media reports followed an interview with EU official Johannes Hahn, who claimed Europe should expect increase of migrant arrivals from Russia through the Arctic or "Ice" route.
Some 5,500 migrants from the Middle East and North Africa used the Arctic route to cross into Europe in November and December 2015, amounting to about 18 percent of asylum seekers in Norway, the ministry said. After bilateral diplomatic negotiations, the migrant influx through the route stopped.
Europe has been beset by a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing their home countries to escape violence and poverty. The EU border agency Frontex recorded over 1.83 million illegal border crossings in the European Union in 2015.
