U.S. officials are tracking the activity of a Russian spy base on the edge of a volcano in Nicaragua that is believed to be monitoring American agents.
The CIA has reportedly sent numerous Russian-speaking Cold War experts to perform counter surveillance of Moscow’s activity in Central America.
One source told The Washington Post, “Clearly, there’s been a lot of activity, and it’s on the uptick now.”
Located in Laguna de Nejapa, the base is officially known as a tracking site for Moscow’s GPS satellite system, but CIA officials suspect that resources there are being utilized to spy on the American Embassy located only ten miles away.
Approximately 250 Russian military members are allegedly at the site.
According to one local resident, “They are Russian, and they speak Russian, and they carry around Russian apparatuses.”
The revelation regarding the alleged spy compound comes as tensions mount between Russia and the United States following President Trump’s decision to bomb Syria, sending a strong message to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad who is backed by Russia.
