Russian Spy Ship Just Made Huge Move Off U.S. Coast… Americans Alarmed

A day after it was spotted patrolling off the East Coast of the United States, the Russian spy ship Viktor Leonov was reportedly observed Wednesday morning 40 miles closer to shore, close to a Navy submarine base in Connecticut.

According to Fox News, the ship was “spotted 30 miles south of Groton, Connecticut” but was still in international waters, which begin approximately 12 miles away from the coast.

A U.S. official said only that the ship, which reportedly carries surface-to-air missiles, was “loitering” in international waters. Its primary function is reportedly to intercept communications and collect data on the U.S. Navy’s sonar capability.

As noted by Fox News, this is the farthest north the ship has ever traveled up the Eastern seaboard, which raises many questions regarding why Russia is behaving like this.

This isn’t the first time that Russia has acted rather inappropriately since President Donald Trump took office in January. Earlier this week, in fact, the Russians deployed a cruise missile in an apparent treaty violation, according to a senior military official who spoke with CNN Tuesday.

“The move is just the latest in a string of Russian provocations in the early days of the Trump administration, which has called for warmer relations with the Kremlin,” CNN pointed out.

Just last week, a U.S. Navy warship in the Black Sea experienced awkward encounters with Russian aircraft that reportedly flew far too close to the American vessel.

“(A) Russian Su-24 flew within 200 yards of the USS Porter last week, flying at an altitude of just 300 feet and a speed in excess of 500 knots,” NBC reported. “The jet was armed. In a separate incident, two other Russian Su-24s came within 300 yards of the ship. They were not armed.”
