Connecticut congressmen express concern over Russian ship
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Congressmen from Connecticut are concerned about reports of a Russian intelligence-collection ship traveling near a U.S. naval submarine base.
U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy and U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney issued statements Wednesday condemning what they describe as Russia's increasing aggression.
A U.S. defense official said Tuesday the Russian ship has been operating in international waters off the U.S. East Coast.
