The New Norm - Russian Spy Ship docks in Havana - Again!
AFP is reporting that the Russian intelligence warship Viktor Leonov CCB-175 docked in Havana on Tuesday, a day before the start of historic US-Cuba talks aimed at normalizing diplomatic relations.
The Vishnya or Meridian-class intelligence ship, which has a crew of around 200, went into service in the Black Sea in 1988 before it was transferred seven years later to the northern fleet, according to Russian media.
The vessel previously docked in Havana in February and March last year, staying there for a few days. Those visits were also unannounced.
