Russia sends spy ship near US coast, deploys banned missiles at home, officials say

 

A Russian spy ship was spotted patrolling off the East Coast of the United States on Tuesday morning, the first such instance during the Trump administration -- and the same day it was learned the Kremlin had secretly deployed controversial cruise missiles inside Russia and flew within 200 yards of a U.S. Navy destroyer, U.S. officials told Fox News.

 

The Russian ship was in international waters, 70 miles off the coast of Delaware and heading north at 10 knots, according to one official. The U.S. territory line is 12 nautical miles.

It was not immediately clear where the ship is headed.

 

Later Tuesday, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Russia had deployed ground-launched cruise missiles to two locations inside the country in December. The New York Times first reported that the Obama administration had previously seen the missiles -- then in a testing phase -- as a violation of a 1987 treaty between the U.S. and Russia that banned ground-launched intermediate-range missiles.

 

But Russia has pressed ahead with its program, apparently testing a Trump administration which has sought better ties with Moscow -- but is also fresh off the loss of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned Monday night in the wake of a scandal surrounding his communications with Russia.

 

Adding to the aggressive actions, Fox News confirmed a report from The Washington Free Beacon that four Russian jets buzzed the USS Porter in the Black Sea on Friday. The destroyer was roughly 186 miles southwest of Crimea and roughly 50 miles off the coast of Romania, a U.S. official said.

 

The jets buzzed the destroyer over course of “several hours,” the official said without specifying. A Russian IL-38 maritime patrol aircraft came in first, followed by two Su-24 attack jets, and then a single Su-24.

 

All approached “low and fast,” the official added, saying the ship was conducting “routine operations in international waters.” 

 

The USS Porter made repeated radio calls to the Russian jets, but the calls were ignored. The jets had their transponders turned off, the official said.

ChasKy53--When even Republicans are calling for a bi-partisan committee to investigate both trump and flynn, when the word "treason" is being used in Washington, when the Head of Special US Operations Command (Army General Tony Thomas) says, that our government is in unbelievable turmoil, when the Russians are violating NATO restrictions, and North Korea is blatantly and quickly expanding its balistic missle's ranges, when despite the fact that communications with the Russians were caught on wire tap, the validity of such is being denied, when the WH is clearly out of control and those who voted for him are still quoting O'Rielly, Brietbart, The Beacon, and are true believers of "Fake News", can't understand what Trump has done wrong these last few horrifying weeks,

THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IS

NEVER!!

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

I want to know how much it is going to take for donaldvoters to wake the heck up and realize what a danger that Trump truly is to this great country we all live in? Putin is a murderer, a relentless killer, his invading countries and taking them over has not ended. His cyber assault here and in Europe are not over. His support for Right Wing Parties gaining control in Europe and in America is enough for me to never vote for Right Wing Politicians. Trump praises the man.

 

Yep, what is Trump going to do now that Putin has broken the treaty and built another cruise missile? What does Trump have to do with this to convince donaldvoters that they have made a mistake in supporting this nut-job?

Yup, that's true --in complete violation of NATO.   Why should they worry when there is someone in the WH that is totally complicit? 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Russia has secretly deployed a new cruise missile despite complaints from American officials that it violates a landmark arms control treaty that helped seal the end of the Cold War, administration officials say.

The move presents a major challenge for President Trump, who has vowed to improve relations with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and to pursue future arms accords.
