US authorities tracking Russian spy ship that left T&T waters

American military authorities are said to be tracking a Russian spy ship that spent some days in Trinidad and Tob ago waters.

A 15-second report on CNN says the ship, the Viktor Leonov, was seen leaving T&T and is heading to the US East Coast.

Russian military expert Michael Koffman said it is not the first time the vessel has toured the East Coast before where the US military has important bases and installations.

CNN's Brian Todd reports that the deployment of the sophisticated spy vessel comes as Russia's Vladimir Putin ramps military activity around the world including the monitoring of underwater internet cables.
