Russian nuclear submarines pass UK waters on secret Atlantic mission to threaten US

As featured in The Daily Express



Defence expert Justin Bronk of the Royal United Services Institute said deploying 10 submarines was a “very big and definite statement” about Russia’s growing naval capabilities. He said it also showed Russia’s ability to defend the Arctic “bastion” where its ballistic missile submarines form a key element of Moscow’s nuclear deterrence. Mr Bronk said: “The ability to put lots of boats in the way of any NATO forces coming up from the north Atlantic or the North Sea, it’s a big feature of Russian active defence capability.”
