British marshal: Russia is able to deprive NATO countries of the Internet

50
Chief of the British General Staff and future head of the NATO Military Committee, Chief Marshal aviation Stuart Peach, during a speech at the Royal Institute of the United Armed Forces (RUSI), said that Russia could threaten the security of deep-sea cables connecting the US and Europe, which are necessary to ensure the Internet and international trade.


British marshal: Russia is able to deprive NATO countries of the Internet


The United Kingdom and its NATO allies should give primary attention to protecting communication lines from Russia, which continues to modernize its fleet, including nuclear and non-nuclear submarines, as well as non-traditional means of warfare.
- declared peach

A new threat has emerged for our prosperity and lifestyle, for cables crossing the seabed, the breakdown of which due to a cliff or destructive impact ... will violate the order of international trade and the work of the Internet
- he added

For this reason, NATO must develop its own naval forces in order to keep up with Russia, which is modernizing its fleet, Peach stated further.

The UK, the Marshal noted, plays a "leading role" in NATO, and it needs to introduce innovations and strengthen its fighting capacity as soon as possible, since Russia "plays with military muscles" and its "appetite for ensuring its national interests" poses a serious threat.

Representatives of the West have repeatedly accused Moscow of allegedly posing a threat to NATO countries. At the same time, Vladimir Putin said that Russia had nothing to fear, noting that its actions are a reaction to one or another initiative of the alliance - in particular, to deploying US missile defense systems in close proximity to its territory, reports RIA News

          Little is left of the former greatness of their fleet. Only always they will have arrogance and this is it "from top to bottom" to other nations.

    Shoto of the mistress of the seas, the military, and politicians have lost a class?
    The statements are ... not solid, not grand?
    What do they say? Do we have submarines with plows? Underwater plowman type?

          Hi Maxim.
          Everything is high-speed and most important - over long distances, this glass (fiber).
          Well armored cable, from that and iron, though low grade.
          However, a simple bad excavator, tears it all at once !!!

              By the way, the admiral is not in the topic - to find optics, not knowing where it is laid ???? This task is for spies / hackers !!! We need accurate laying plans. Look for underwater optical lines ???? it’s not possible by any technical means !!!

                  Everything is in line with world trends - The Russians are to blame for everything, let's move on - Putin is to blame! - that’s the logic, if anything, you don’t have to look for the guilty for a long time!

    Yes, Russia can deprive you of a lot, including and your belongings. But for some reason does not do this (although the people with both hands are for). Rejoice that you have not yet been stripped of everything.

    Interestingly, this type has seen at least how the basic nodes of the Internet are distributed? How would anything more than half (9 of 13 if I am not mistaken) are the root DNS servers located in the USA? And as if the cables have a) backup channels b) an additional transmission route via satellites.
    To disrupt the Internet on a global scale, you need to try very hard.
