NATO has deployed submarine communications protection unit

NATO has put on alert a special unit to protect transport and communication routes in the Atlantic. This is reported by Focus with reference to a statement from the alliance.


The newly created unit to protect the transport and communication routes between North America and Europe, stationed in the American city of Norfolk, Virginia, is on full alert and will patrol the Atlantic Ocean. The main goal is to prevent Russian submarines from damaging submarine cables between the United States and Europe. The new unit is part of the restored 2nd fleet United States Navy under the command of Vice Admiral Andrew Lewis.

NATO fears that Russian submarines will disrupt Internet communications between allies in the alliance by cutting submarine cables. Such attacks by Russian submarines are said to be part of a hybrid war.

In Europe, there is a second similar unit, stationed in Ulm in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It is responsible for transporting soldiers and military equipment to Europe.

The Second Fleet of the US Navy considers Russia to be the main goal of its activities. Its main theater is the Atlantic, including a separate North Atlantic region. The second fleet has existed since February 1950, but in 2011 it was disbanded, and in 2018 it was revived again. Historically, he took part in the Cuban Missile Crisis, the invasion of Grenada and other operations.

    I wonder how they were going to control and protect thousands of kilometers of submarine cables from our research ships ?? With proper planning "research" - no way.

      I remembered:

      Where are you from, buddy?
      Your song:
      "Grenada, Grenada,
      My Grenada? ”

      He hesitates with an answer,
      Dreamer-hoch.ol:
      - Brother! Grenada
      I found in the book.
      Beautiful name,
      High honor -
      Grenada parish
      Spain has ...

      My friend left
      And he took the song.
      Since then not heard
      Native land:
      "Grenada, Grenada,
      My Granada! ”

      The detachment did not notice
      Fighter losses
      And "Yablochko" -song
      Done to the end

        how they got together to control and protect thousands of kilometers of submarine cables

        Here the trick is not how to defend, but whom to blame.
        Remember the terrorist attack on September 11.09.01, XNUMX - an unknown amount of gold was passed through the bank, whose branch was in those skyscrapers. Perhaps tens of tons. The servers are destroyed, everything is sewn-covered. The gold "evaporated".
        Trillions can be made in the stock market panic caused by the cut cable.
        So the culprit is being prepared in advance.

          I'm interested in something else - Western countries, their officials call Russia nothing but: an enemy, an adversary, a rival, a country leading an unfriendly policy, etc. Western officials officially declared Russia from the international stands as a country leading a hybrid war with the countries of "Western democracy" while Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry, Russian officials continue to call these countries nothing more than "partners" and are doing everything possible so that they (the Western countries) do not inadvertently "offend, not affect their image and self-esteem ... only one thing is expressed everywhere "regret" and "concern" ...

      So the point is not even "how?" _ But the fact that, shouldn't such special units be in constant combat readiness? _ In my opinion, the answer is simple: such statements attract attention. And why attract attention, I suppose, to be a provocation. And this will already have a more significant effect than skalnaval and "himataki" in Syria. And, if I may put it that way, the detonator is the collapsed coup in Belarus, and Belarus is the ultimate goal _ it will either press close to Russia, or the ring around the Russian Federation will close.

        "Skripalnaval" is a good term, it should be included in the standard vocabulary.
        What? "Scriponavality" is the whole meaning of Western diplomacy in relation to Russia, a kind of ideological "core" :: and this one will come down if they have nothing else for their souls (and there is no soul either, only accusatory slogans!)

      Several dozen cables run across the Atlantic.

      There is simply no sense in undermining even half of them.
      Since most of them are involved in less than half the bandwidth (with a margin of construction). The normal figure for now is 3 Terabits / second.
      And recently they built a cable with a bandwidth of 160 Terabits / second.
      The robot must first be created, such that it could accurately lay the required charges.
      They need to be built.
      He needs carriers.
      Since there are a lot of cables, in order to "cut the entire Atlantic in an instant" - you need at least 40 carriers.

      And then, it will be a monkey's work.
      Information will change routing and travel across the Pacific Ocean.

        An underwater robot is not a spaceship. And the destruction of such a cable does not require 3 tons of TNT. A small hole is enough, the seawater will do everything by itself.

    "The further into the forest, the thicker the partisans" (Fomenko). Knowing perfectly well that they assume outright nonsense and they are not in danger of anything, they still escalate the situation by continuing to expose Russia as a monster. When the image of a "bloodthirsty enemy" ready for anything is so actively promoted and hammered into the layman, the only thought spontaneously arises - they are preparing their layman for the worst. Well, if not a world war, then a hot conflict on our border with Russia being drawn into it.

      Indeed, there are many supporting signs. Here is the intensification of flights along our borders, moreover, with the participation of strategists and conducting military coordination not only with satellites from NATO, but also with Ukraine; and events in Belarus and on its borders; and naval exercises in the Barents Sea; and Cece Capfel at the Charite Hospital; etc. etc.

      I think the likelihood of any local conflict on or near our borders is nonzero.

      Any hot conflict on its border, Russia, if it does not rassusolit and play "international law" (which has long been gone), will resolve in a couple of hours. Europe and China will not climb. Turkey will be afraid. And the rest are not opponents. I think that's how it should be. Someone vyaknul something wrong, according to the tinsel. And then, all sorts of "samostiyniki" have already gone to the edge. Instead of portraying a good brother, it is high time to adopt Western political methods, namely, "the strong is always right."

    Well, how long will they keep these units in the mode that the old radio operators called "heating on heating"? The batteries won't run out? Not to mention, cables across the Atlantic aren't the only means of communication. The Internet is a network. There will be no communication across the Atlantic - communication will go through other cables, bypassing. Are there no cables across the Pacific? There are still satellites ... The whole planet is already entangled in communication networks.

    "The main goal is to prevent Russian submarines from damaging submarine cables between the United States and Europe."
    The USA is a brazen and uncompromising OCCUPANT of Europe since 1945. It understands that losing contact with its occupying expeditionary force in Europe is fraught with its destruction.
    It's good that our Navy realized this.

    Is this the result of a lopsided translation or did the Yankees really move with their minds? And that is very much reminiscent of the drug addict clip of "Alice" "Route E-95": "Otters! At night they crawl ashore and gnaw all the cables in a row!"

    Once announced that they will "protect from damage" - then damage WILL

    So we are waiting for damage. Before or after November 3rd?

    Yes, personally, I will take a half-day leave at the factory. If such is the case. I'll come and cut it all to hell.
    Then on Saturday I'll work.
    For a good deed, and hours are not a pity! ...
    Cutting is generally my strong point!
