Russia’s suspected internet cable spy ship appears off Americas | Forbes

The Yanter departed from a port in Russia almost a month ago and recently resurfaced strikingly close to the Americas. She appeared on trackers almost instantaneously, rather than being seen moving into the Caribbean. Attention had previously been brought to the ship after the Yanter was observed sitting over the Submarine Communications Cables, which carry internet and communication across the oceans. Naval crew has claimed the ship is secretly placing listening devices at the cables to pick up communications due to the vessel being equipped with deep-dive submarines, remote-operated underwater vehicles, and other seabed warfare systems.
