Russian Submarine Activity Highest US Has Seen In a Long Time
Posted on: 01/22/20

The Navy is seeing a surge in Russian submarine activity, and it's posing new challenges to the U.S. and its NATO allies, a top U.S. admiral overseeing missions in Europe said.

The U.S. Navy is doing more in the undersea domain, Adm. James Foggo, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Europe and Africa, told reporters on Wednesday, as submarine competition with Russia heats up.

"This has been one of the busiest years that I can remember, and I've been doing this since 1983," he said. "... Russia has continued to put resources into their undersea domain. It's an asymmetric way of challenging the West and NATO alliance and actually they've done quite well."

Russia this fall held a major submarine exercise in the Atlantic. The goal, according to a report from the Barents Observer -- Europe's northernmost English-Russian news outlet -- was for at least eight nuclear-powered subs to get as far out into the North Atlantic without detection.
