Pentagon: Russia's claims regarding US ship false

The claims, made by Russia's Defense Ministry, of a United States vessel being intercepted, are false, the US military said in a statement.

The statement explained that Washington's naval destroyer, USS Chafee, and Russia's Udaloy-class destroyer "came within 65 yards" from each other, adding that "the interaction was safe and professional."

"The United States will continue to fly, sail, and operate where international law allows," the readout concluded.
