The ship, which according to a Fox News report is the SSV-175 Viktor Leonov, remained in global waters while sailing south of Long Island, according to U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Jonathan Cinquegrana.
The U.S.is downplaying the presence of a Russian intelligence ship off the coast of CT, despite two other recent incidents with Russia that have raised security concerns.
It's not unusual for Russian ships to be spotted near King's Bay, Georgia, the site of another east coast sub base, but Courtney said the CT visit appears to be an escalation.

The Russian spy ship was last seen off the East Coast of the US about two years ago, spending time near another USA submarine base in Kings Bay, Ga.
Ships like the Viktor Leonov also appear quite frequently on the West Coast, where they follow around American exercises and show up in the South China Sea, Petersen said, adding that Chinese ships do the same. Certainly, having a Russian spy ship off the northeastern shores of the United States may be interesting and something to keep an eye on, but it's not as if the Russians sailed the Northern Fleet across the Atlantic to take up station off Washington, D.C. The ship's actual intelligence gathering capabilities are also questionable.
