For the second time in a month a Russian spy ship has been spotted near the US coastline, this time off the coast of Georgia.

The Viktor Leonov, a Russian spy vessel outfitted with a variety of high-tech spy equipment and designed to intercept communications signals, was spotted some 20 miles south of the US Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay near the Florida border, a US defense official told CNN. It was heading north.

The ship was docked in Cuba before heading towards the US, said the defense official, who didn’t specify when the sighting occurred.
