Northern Fleet Chases Out American Submarine Illegally Intruding in Russian Territorial Waters

00 northern Fleet. 10.08.14

______________________________

On Saturday, a high-ranking naval source told us that Northern Fleet anti-submarine forces detected and chased an intruding US submarine from Russian territorial waters, saying, “On 7 August 2014, patrol forces of the Northern Fleet detected a foreign submarine, presumably, a US Navy Virginia-class boat, in the Barents Sea. We sent anti-submarine ships, as well as an Il-38 ASW aircraft, to the area to search for it and track it down”. Russian forces chased the submarine out of Russian waters after a 27-minute contact. Our source said, “This is far from being an isolated incident, we’ve found foreign submarines in the Barents Sea lately. NATO submarines cause serious navigational incidents many times”. In 1992, the USS Baton Rouge collided with the Northern Fleet submarine K-276 Krab in Kolsky Bay. In 1986, the submarine HMS Splendid collided with a Northern Fleet PL Project 941 Akula SSBN.
