Russian Spy Ship Back On US East Coast, White House’s Russian Spies And President Are Silent Again
So much for the racist conman’s campaign promises, “When I am president, Putin will respect us, he loves me!” The Russian spy ship first spotted off the Delaware coast last month is back.
U.S. officials told Highlight Hollywood on Wednesday that the Russian spy ship Victor Leonov has returned to waters off the East Coast of the United States after a brief stop for fuel and resupply in Havana last week.
The ship was spotted by U.S. intelligence officers approximately 23 miles southeast of a U.S. Navy submarine base in Kings Bay, Ga., heading north, officials said.
The U.S. Navy’s Atlantic fleet of ballistic missile submarines are based in Kings Bay.
The Russian spy ship has remained in international waters, according to officials. U.S. territorial waters extend 12 nautical miles from shore.
Prior to last month’s venture, the Russian spy ship last patrolled off the East Coast of the United States two years ago. The Victor Leonov departed from Russia’s northern fleet based in the Barents Sea near Norway in early January.
At one point last month, the Russian spy ship ventured as far north as 30 miles off the coast of Connecticut, home to another U.S. Navy submarine base.
