The Obama administration responded cautiously to the very public detention, then release by Russian authorities, of an American diplomat accused of spying in Moscow, saying that the U.S. remains committed to close relations with Russia and downplaying the possibility of retaliation against Russian intelligence agents in the U.S.

Russia has accused a third secretary at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Ryan Fogle, of acting as a spy for the Central Intelligence Agency, The Associated Press reported.
