News 12 speaks with Russian-Americans about spy ship off coast

Russian-Americans in Connecticut spoke with News 12 Wednesday about the Russian spy ship that was spotted off the state's coast.



Several Russian immigrants told News 12 they are curious as to why the spy ship was near Connecticut.



One man who moved to the U.S. from Russia two years ago told News 12 he hopes the situation won't make his new neighbors fear his home country.



"I think it's quite a friendly country, but here, we think it's not friendly," said Alex Busarev. "It's like an enemy for America, but I don't think so."



Immigrants from Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland are also present in Connecticut. Some say they are worried the spy ship's presence represents Russian aggression.
