FT: The activity of Russian submarines alarmed NATO

70
The command of the North Atlantic Alliance expressed concern about the activity of Russian submarines in the waters of the oceans. This was reported on December 22 by The Financial Times, citing a statement by the commander of the underwater fleet Rear Admiral Andrew Lennon's NATO.


The activity of Russian submarines in the past three years is higher than in the entire time since the end of the Cold War. During these three years, we have seen more [annual] deployments of Russian submarines outside of our waters than in the previous decade.
- he said. According to Lennon, NATO has recorded significant activity in the Black and Mediterranean seas of six submarines.

FT: The activity of Russian submarines alarmed NATO


In addition, according to the statement of the rear admiral, Russia “obviously shows an interest in NATO’s submarine infrastructure,” primarily in the channels of communication between Europe and the United States. Lennon said that a submarine converted for launching ballistic missiles and called admiral "carrier ship" was involved in underwater operations near cable routes, because other smaller ships could be released from its board into the sea.

We believe that they can be equipped with equipment capable of interacting with objects on the ocean floor.
- declared Lennon. However, he added that he did not claim that such interference in the work of underwater communication channels had already occurred.

Earlier Chief of General Staff of the British Armed Forces aviation Stuart Peach said that the country's trade and the Internet could face “catastrophic” damage in the event of a potential attack by the Russian Federation on submarine communication cables.

A spokesman for the Russian Embassy, ​​commenting on Pich’s statement, said that the UK authorities are engaged in intimidating citizens, trying to increase the defense budget, instead of taking part in discussions on European security issues.

          Compare submarine deaths. Somewhere the article was in. Approximate parity between us and the USA. The rest have fewer because boats on the finger of one hand can be counted.

            Lesha, welcome hi If you have boats, but do not go out to sea, the danger is reduced, but not to zero. We had, and the Indians at the pier boats were killed. Now, if you do not have them at all, then death is excluded. And on the case - let NATO not relax, better if Argentina helps San Juan find it. When busy with business - less bad thoughts arise. good drinks

            Don’t worry, I’ve defended my aerodrome guard for two years. And I didn’t think that according to the charter, after a day of guard, two were laid to rest, there were no people. They served and did not puff. Yes, and after the army did not eat up at the grocery base. So leave your horror stories with you. You’ve even been to your homeland, not a couple of borders from it.

            Political advertising is certainly good, but on the topic of the article it would be necessary. Our fleet is building up its former power with great difficulty. NATO is starting to show concern. So we are moving in the right direction, it’s only a pity that it’s very slow.

              So I mean, indirectly everything on the topic. The socialists will be at the helm, I am sure that the country will cope with all tasks much faster. I believe that the main problem is that all the money that the oligarchs earn in our country is invested in the economy of the potential aggressor, and that’s why we are treading water. But this is only one of many problems that urgently need to be addressed. https://regnum.ru/news/2360359.html

                Controversial statement. One way or another, a change of power will slow down development. “A new broom ...” And this is if there is no opposition from the former leaders, either explicit or hidden.

                  Of course, I would agree with you if it (development) would be. In my opinion, we are now stagnant, with a trend towards degradation. It all depends on the economy. And there will be no army if there is no money. Already many projects are frozen. Already there is no money in the "piggy bank" for three years, half a trillion dollars disappeared somewhere .. In general, as soon as the oil collapsed, all the "development" began to disappear ..

                    Stagnation and degradation were in the 90s with the collapse of the Union. Now it’s just begun to get out of this pit, at least some kind of movement for the better. The change of government will stop it, and not the fact that it will fix in the near future. This does not happen instantly, and a lot of time is already lost. The thieves at the trough will remain the same, and under the new government they will do their dirty deed. The succession of power can not be expected.

Maybe pensions have become worth paying? Well, give an example, the army does not count. Where do you think we got it? Understand that if the state is not socially oriented, then why is it needed?

    Over these three years, we have seen more [annual] deployments of Russian submarines beyond our waters,

    we have such a job ... something, I doubt that their submarines go exclusively in territorial waters or are generally on the docks ... about destroyers and they don’t even have to go where they want ... did they usurp something of the sea-ocean? involuntarily Zadornov with a lighthouse comes to mind ...

      so the horses dug the seas, oceans, so they have to ask permission recourse and the Yankees, unlike us, were allowed to walk crying

          Marinochka Vitalievna, my respect love love love
          so I look at the Yankees take a ram.

          So it’s not they, but they are rammed. Rules of navigation should not be violated. lol
          And males laid along the bottom do not give the right to alienate this part of neutral waters and prohibit other ships from passing above them. That way you can throw a vole from St. Petersburg and Murmansk to Cuba along the bottom and provide a safe corridor to our boats. Just think, it does not work like a communication cable, but it lies at the bottom and we laid. laughing love
          And the British generally made a mess in the fleet instead of service. Relaxed, you know. am

    We believe that they can be equipped with equipment capable of interacting with objects on the ocean floor.

    The activity of Russian submarines in the past three years is higher than for all the time since the end of the Cold War.

    ... Basically they are not up to date, or were silent.

    The bastards of NATO and the United States, when your submarines spun along the borders of Russia, they were all silent for some reason, and when Russia began to go into the ocean, all kinds of scum from the West howled that the Russians began to disturb them. wait, you'll not sing like that when newer submarines with newer weapons appear. just block the US from Europe

    And you give more freedom to your generals and politicians in their statements about treacherous and warlike Russia, about submarines snooping around here, about Putin’s armies around the world, and about Russian hackers crawling all their cracks right into the brain and maybe the whole world will have to listen later Silence.

    But a disarming strike can be not only missile. The blow to the communications infrastructure is also disarming. But we don’t shout about it on every corner ...

    Unfortunately, with all the positive dynamics, our submarines still spend most of their life cycles at the berth, and it is impossible to achieve a permanent presence in key areas of the world's oceans with the existing numerical and high-quality shipbuilding. And without this, the fleet has low combat value.

    Lennon said that a submarine converted for ballistic missile launches and called the admiral a “launch ship” took part in underwater operations near cable routes.
    The stump is clear, we generally always hit the ballistics with vigorous ballistics

      Vyacheslav, welcome hi So they were pinched at the time on reconnaissance equipment superimposed on our cable, so they scurry around. They are afraid that we can do the same. And let them tremble. soldier
