Translated from Russian:
Russia for the first time brought all the submarines of its Black Sea Fleet to sea on combat missions, RIA Novosti reports.
It is noted that not a single submarine remained at the base. The agency quotes the words of the senior officer of the Black Sea Fleet submarine brigade, Captain 1st Rank Anatoly Varachkin.
“This is an unprecedented case, which is not found either in the fleets of the Russian Federation or in the fleets of foreign states,” he said.
Varachkin insists that the corresponding combat alert format is completely new for the world, specifying that all six Russian submarines are working at sea to perform different tasks.
