The Russian spy ship spotted off the East Coast last month is back


The Russian spy ship that was spotted off the East Coast multiple times last month is back.

Fox News reports the Viktor Leonov was spotted near Kings Bay, Georgia. The U.S. Navy holds its ballistic missile submarines in that base. 

The Viktor Leonov is still in international waters. U.S. waters extend 12 miles off the coast. 

Last month, it was spotted near Virginia and off the coast of Connecticut. 

President Trump joked last month when the ship was last seen that "the greatest thing I could do is shoot the ship right out of the water."

The ship's reappearance comes on the heels of Justice Department announcement that Russia paid hackers to break into Yahoo.  

The last time the ship was spotted, the Michael Flynn scandal was brewing.
