Senior U.S. military and intelligence officials denied reports in Russian media Friday that U.S. drones of any kind are flying over Crimea in Ukraine.

The Voice of Russia, a division of the Russian news agency Interfax, had reported that an “American scout-attack drone” was intercepted while performing reconnaissance in Crimean airspace, according to the Rostec state corporation.

“Judging by side marking, the MQ-5B drone was part of the 66th US brigade of military intelligence with the main location in Bavaria,” the Rostec report read, according to Voice of Russia.
