A Russian intelligence-gathering ship has been spotted roaming the waters off the East Coast.
The SSV-175 Viktor Leonov ship was 70 miles off the coast of Delaware - in international waters - heading north, officials told Fox News.
Armed with surface-to-air missiles, the ship is capable of intercepting communications and can measure U.S. Navy sonar capability, an official said.
'It's not a huge concern, but we are keeping our eyes on it,' they added.
It is the first such move by Russian military under Donald Trump's presidency. The sighting came as news broke that White House national security adviser Michael Flynn had been forced to resign amid controversy over his Russia contacts.
