RUSSIAN subs are patrolling the seas at levels last seen during the Cold War, it has been claimed today.
Admiral Vladimir Korolyov, the commander-in-chief of the Russian navy, said his submarine crews spent more than 3,000 days under the water last year alone.
In an interview a state news agency, Admiral Korolyov bragged: “It’s an excellent level.”
When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the Russian navy was forced to scrap many relatively new ships.
Others lay rusting in harbours.
But now Vladimir Putin has pumped so much money into the military, Russia now claims it is once again a power to be reckoned with.
Meanwhile Royal Navy Trafalgar class hunter-killer subs are being kept busy hunting and tracking their Russian counterparts on behalf of NATO.
