Report: Russia Wants to Reopen Spy Base in Cuba

Russia wants to get closer to the United States — in a Cold War kind of way.

The Russian government and Cuba have agreed to reopen a massive Soviet-era spy base on the outskirts of Havana, according to the Russian newspaper Kommersant.

The base, just 150 miles off the coast of the United States, originally opened in 1964 after the Cuban missile crisis. Russia shut the spy installation down in 2002 because of lack of funds and as a goodwill gesture toward the American government in what was then a better diplomatic climate. If it reopens, the listening post would be Russia's only intelligence-gathering center in the Western hemisphere.

The deal between the two governments, announced after President Vladimir Putin's visit to the island last week, could not be independently confirmed.

"All I can say is — finally!" an anonymous Russian government source told the newspaper.
