Russia 'to reopen Cold War Cuban listening post used to spy on America'
Facility at Lourdes was the largest Russian listening post abroad
It was mothballed in 2001 after relations with the U.S. warmed
But relations with the West have deteriorated amid the Ukraine crisis
Moscow has also shown a new interest in Latin America and Cuba
Last week, Russia agreed to write off 90 per cent of Cuba's debt
