More Pirates of The Caribbean

Russia’s underwater spy ship recently traveled across the Atlantic Ocean and is currently sailing in America’s backyard. 

Yantar, allegedly a ship meant to research the deep ocean, has an odd habit of skulking around sunken military equipment—and undersea telecommunications cables. 

The ship has suddenly popped up in the Caribbean, prompting military watchers to wonder what the strange ship is up to. 

Yantar is a Russian Navy vessel, but one that lacks a single weapon. The ship was commissioned in 2015 and officially is known as a "special purpose ship" or "oceanographic vessel." It is operated by the Russian Navy's Main Directorate of Underwater Research, which Russian military watchers believe controls Russia’s undersea spying efforts. more
