Russian Spy Ship Makes Port Call In Curacao
A Russian naval spy ship, tracked by US intelligence assets over the past two months as it sailed the western Atlantic, arrived in Curacao this weekend, where it is expected to take on supplies. 
On Sunday, the research ship Yantar sailed into the port of Willemstad, capital of Curacao, after transiting international waters off the southeastern United States. Maritime tracking data showed that it was near Aruba several days ago, the Washington Free Beacon reported. 
The Yantar is a newly commissioned Russian naval research vessel that is believed to be conducting surveillance operations against US missile submarines based at Kings Bay, Georgia. Pentagon officials said the vessel was tracked from the north Atlantic on August 24 as it sailed south through international waters along the US east coast. 
The ship’s activities in the Atlantic over the past several weeks also coincided with the deployment of the nuclear missile submarine USS Wyoming from Kings Bay to Scotland on September 16. Russia has been known to deploy vessels similar to the Yantar in support of its attack submarines. 
It is not known if any Russian attack submarines were in the Atlantic at the same time the Wyoming crossed the ocean on the way to Scotland. However, defence analysts believe the Yantar is conducting underwater mapping and reconnaissance operations that would support future Russian submarine operations in the Atlantic.
