Such accusations are "totally groundless," Boris Aleshin said at a Moscow press conference Tuesday.
The Russian deputy prime minister stressed that both weapons and hi-tech monitoring systems in Russia "were in no way inferior or superior to ones used in other countries".
"We have no ideas in our minds, which would break international treaties," Boris Aleshin said.
At the same time he expressed his concerns over illegal exploitation of Russian technologies and illegal production of some types of weapons abroad. "There is a certain hi-tech drain but it has never been initiated by the Russian state," the Russian deputy prime minister said.
