MOSCOW - A Russian Defence Ministry official, responding to complaints by Ottawa that a Russian aircraft had flown low near a Canadian warship in the Black Sea, said on Tuesday no Russian plane had approached the vessel.

Itar-Tass news agency quoted General-Major Igor Konashenkov as saying two Russian aircraft had passed through the area on a routine flight but "without making an approach on the foreign military vessel."
