“We drew attention to the underwater actions of Russia in the summer-autumn of 2018 and compared this to what Russia did in the summer-autumn of 2019. And we saw an increase of 50% in the number of resources under water that Russia allocated, including operations to patrol submarines outside its borders,” the general said, RIA Novosti reports.

He noted that at the same time in 2019 there was a “growth of adequate behavior” of Russian submariners.

“This observation is another consideration about how important it is to continue to improve our ability to compete in order to reduce risks and ensure our freedom of action,” concluded Walters.

In November 2019, the Chief of Staff of the Royal British Air Force, Michael Wigston, announced that Russian submarines would no longer be able to take refuge off the coast of the United Kingdom.
