Governor Dan Malloy says the Russian spy ship spotted in international waters off Groton is not a major cause for concern.  

Malloy  says this type of action is common as the best submarines in the world  are made and housed in Groton.  

He says it's getting a lot of attention  because of the recent news involving Russia and President Trump.   

However, he says the Russians have always liked tracking submarines from  Groton. 

The President has yet to speak about the issue.  And Secretary of State Tillerson will be meeting with his Russian Counterpart later today at the G20 Meetings in Germany.
