Russian spy ship docked in Communist Cuba
By Douglas Ernst -The Washington Times Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Communist Cuba's state-run media predictably did not make an
announcement, but it's there — a Russian spy ship docked in Havana.
The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 intelligence ship docked in the Cuban port on
Wednesday, Agence France-Presse reported.
The 300-foot-long ship, which reportedly is armed with 30mm guns and
anti-aircraft missiles, also houses a crew of roughly 200, AFP reported.
It has been in service since 1988.
The sighting of the spy ship comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin
ordered massive four-day military exercises near Russia's borders to
begin Friday. The maneuvers will involve 150,000 troops, 880 tanks, 90
aircraft and 80 navy ships drawn from Russia's Baltic and Northern
Fleets, the Associated Press reported.
