CUBA: "Interesting timing.... Without warning a Russian spy ship glided into Havana's harbor Tuesday morning, docking a few hundred yards from the CNN Havana bureau. The Viktor Leonov visited Cuba before in 2014, then presumably to eavesdrop on US telecommunications. On Wednesday, a State Department delegation - the highest level US government delegation in decades - will travel to Havana to discuss migration issues and the restoration of full diplomatic ties. Its unclear if the spy ships presence will affect those historic talks." - CNN's Patrick Oppmann, January 20

MUST WATCH

Russian spy ship in Cuba

The same ship presumably spied on U.S. last year. CNN's Karl Penhaul reports.
