A Russian spy ship was spotted off the East Coast near Delaware, the first time this has happened since President Trump took office.
The ship was about 70 miles off the coast of Delaware, Fox News reported, citing anonymous U.S. officials. That position would put the ship within international waters. The boundary line is 12 nautical miles (roughly 10 miles).
The ship, the SSV-175 Viktor Leonov, last sailed near the U.S. in April 2015. It is armed with surface-to-air missiles.
It's not a huge concern, but we are keeping our eyes on it.
Russian spy ships were commonly spotted off the East Coast during the Cold War. Kings Bay, Ga., hosts a Navy base and tends to be a hotspot for the ships.
The sighting comes amid former national security advisor Michael Flynn's resignation over a call with Russia regarding sanctions.
Some observers thought the two incidents were connected, which is doubtful.
