    Moscow:

    Russia’s spy service has announced that it had arrested a Chinese citizen for allegedly attempting to steal secrets about the country’s missile system.

    The Russian statement came after a top American lawmaker accused China of exercising "an intolerable level" of espionage against the US, ABC News reports.

    The Federal Security Service (FSB) said a Chinese citizen, Tong Shenyun, who pretended to be an official delegations’ translator, was working under the Chinese Government to buy "technical and repair documentationâ€￾ about Russia''s S-300 missile system.

    S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems are used in a joint military exercise conducted by Russian, Belarusian and Kazakhstanís Air Forces and Air Defense Forces at Ashuluk firing range in Russia’s Astrakhan Region.

    Though Shenyun was reportedly detained last year, his arrest is made public this week.

    US-based cyber security giant McAfee had earlier released a report, which had hinted that China was likely behind "relentless" cyber attacks perpetrated on 70 global companies, governments, and non-profit organizations over the last half-decade.

    Though China was not named as a suspect in the report, the country’s state-run media had blasted those allegations.

    China has so far not given response to the report, but officials have repeatedly condemned the hacking accusations against their country as "groundless."
