    The Latest: Russia denies its jet violated Turkish airspace

    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) The Latest on what Turkey says is a new violation of its airspace by Russia (all times local):

    10:30 p.m.

    Russia's Defense Ministry denies that one of its jets violated Turkish airspace.

    The ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, said that "there were no violations of Turkish airspace by planes of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic. Turkey's statement on the alleged fact of airspace violation by a Russian Su-34 is unsubstantiated propaganda."

    His comments were carried by state news agencies Tass and RIA Novosti.

    He added that: "None of these radars are able to establish the type and the nationality of the aircraft whether Russian or of the U.S.-led so-called antii-ISIS coalition."
