Britain is deploying special forces to monitor Russian submarines
British Defense Secretary Geoffen Williamson said in an interview with the Telegraph newspaper that his country would deploy 800 marines and special forces in Norway as part of the new Arctic strategy.
"We see that Russian submarine activity is very close to the level of the Cold War years and it would be right to start reacting," Williamson said."If we could get back 10 years, many would think that the era of submarine activity in the far north and north of the Atlantic Ocean and the threat it represents have disappeared with the fall of the Berlin Wall, but this threat has really come to the fore."
The new strategy aims to allow Britain to monitor the activity of Russian submarines effectively and ensure that the armed forces are deployed in a way that allows them to respond to any threat.
