Russia is denying claims by U.S. officials that one of its jets recently intercepted a U.S recon plane in an "unsafe and unprofessional manner."
On Sunday, Russia's Ministry of Defense said the jet's flight strictly followed "international rules of the airspace usage" and said claims that the jet did a barrel roll aren't true.
According to U.S. European Command, the area in the Baltic Sea where the dispute took place isn't in Russian territory.
