No. The claims were fabricated by a group of Russian scientists using the excuse that a dish at the United States base in the Mariana's was tracking
an asteroid and whether purposefully or not, interfered with the probe. However, according to the United States, there is no "asteroid tracking"
facility in the area.
The Phobos-Grunt probe was a joint mission between Russia and two other NGOs who had systems on board. The probe was orbiting the earth twice before
sling-shotting to Mars. It was not a spy satellite in any way, shape, or form.
This is the thread about the probe. It was thoroughly debunked by the last pages.
