Military Review

British Secretary of Defense: "The Russians have not been in the Irish Sea for a long time, and now their submarines are appearing there."

In Britain, they continue to declare an increase in the level of the "Russian threat". In addition to the "threat from Russian hackers", the UK Department of Defense now sees "a threat from the Naval fleet Russia. "

British Defense Minister Ben Wallace said that Russia is "the number one threat" and added that he was concerned about the activity of Russian warships near British territorial waters.

Ben Wallace:

Russia is notable for its unpredictable actions. In this situation, it is difficult for us to understand in which direction she is going to move.

The British Defense Minister said that "the Russians have not been in the Irish Sea for a long time, and now their submarines are appearing there." We are talking about the appearance of a Russian submarine in this sea at the end of last year. This information was voiced by Mr. Wallace himself in an interview with British reporters.

Wallace:

For the first time in a long time, we have recorded the presence of Russian submarine forces in the Irish Sea.

The Irish Sea is the part of the Atlantic Ocean located between Great Britain and Ireland. Its average depth is about 40 m, the greatest depth is 175 m.

About which submarine of the Russian Navy entered the Irish Sea, Mr. Wallace did not say.

It should be recalled that earlier the authorities of the United Kingdom announced the implementation of a program that should return "British naval influence in the oceans." London is going to reclaim this influence with the use of its new aircraft carrier, Queen Elizabeth.

    The Russians were gone for a long time, and now they have returned ... So what? The minister of defense needs to run to the queen and ask for some money. To maintain the pants.

      Russian submarines, like the Flying Dutchman, will unnerve and predict trouble for the British minister! Even if they are not in that sea.

        Boats are as unprovable as Petrov and Bashirov with a rotten "newcomer" ... But what an effect. Immediately into the budget with two hands, and orders, kickbacks, cuts ... And most importantly, you will not dig in. Highley likely, and that's it ...

          At a depth of 40 meters, we obviously skated there on the surface ..)

      - Do you see a gopher? - No - And I don't see. And he is. Was our submarine there or not - the grandmother said in two, but in order to put a horror story about the Russian threat into the mind of an ordinary person, the Anglo-Saxon Minister of Defense is ready to declare that even in his bedroom, on his wife, he periodically began to observe Russian marines and it worries him greatly. unpredictability ... laughing

    I understand that I am not a submariner. But this is very small, for nuclear submarines of level 945/955/855/667

      This is not enough for any modern submarine, at such depths it is difficult to remain undetected.

    I'm wondering - is there a limit to British duplicity and filth? British ships and submarines in the Barents and Black Seas are normal. Russian submarine near Scotland is outrageous)))

          There is no absolute informational isolation of countries from each other!
          You can visit noodles on your ears, but it is not a fact that it will hang from someone who wants to learn a different point of view.
          Of course, tik tokers and gambling addicts, lost, in many ways, people who are out of touch with reality ... but not all at once.
          Objective reality, however, brings many to life .... in different ways, of course.

    According to the latest articles on VO, our submarines have nothing to do at sea. The supostat sees them in any form and at any depth. I have such a suspicion that someone is engaged in "profonation." are most active when the royal family takes their annual vacations in the Hebrides!

    It is necessary to work on the division of Britain without great, Scotland and Ireland to support the separation. Everything is in a mirror image, England to us, we are her the same coin. The English principle "Divide and conquer, the best that can be applied to them.

    A very strange attack of uryapatriotism among the commentators. These are the words of a politician, not the Minister of Defense! The goals are known only to him - clearly not what is said in the mind. And in the mind, it is possible to justify the order of new submarines and other weapons, to justify the new doctrine, to reassure the Chinese once again that they have nothing against them (all the same, relations with Russia are bad, and the AUG is going to the east), and so on. And it’s all the more not good, then, that public opinion in the West as a whole continues to turn against Russia with just such messages. The main thing for our Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to correctly assess and not break firewood like "in return".
