NATO intends to strengthen the naval command in Britain because of the growing activity of the submarines of the Russian Federation — mass media

NATO intends to strengthen the joint naval command (MАRCOM) in connection with the growth of the aggressive activity of Russian submarines in the region. This publication reports The Times.

It is expected that the number of personnel of the joint command, the Navy, stationed in Northwood in North-West London will increase by 100-200 people from the current 300.

The Alliance is concerned at the excessive activity of submarines in the Black and Mediterranean seas, as well as the possible threat from these vessels for submarine communication cables.

Admiral sir George Zambella, a former first sea Lord, the former head of the Royal Navy, said that at the moment, the one that controls the underwater area, monitors and surface, air, and in the future – space. Accordingly, he said, if you don’t invest in this industry in time of peace, will not be able to respond to a potential rival in case of war.

As said the source «UKRINFORM» in the Euro-Atlantic diplomatic circles, the issue of strengthening MАRCOM can be considered at the meeting of the NATO military Committee 16-17 January in Brussels.

In June 2017, the head of the NATO military Committee, General Petr Pavel said that Russia is increasing its military potential on almost all fronts, so NATO must be vigilant to prevent the scenario of annexation of Crimea and invasion of Eastern Ukraine.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in November last year said that the threat from Russia is constantly growing and NATO need to adapt.

The head of the General staff of the armed forces of the United Kingdom sir Stuart Peach warned that the Russian Navy is a threat to undersea cables and the Internet. The PMP noted that the destruction of the cables would be «potentially catastrophic» blow to the economy of the NATO countries.
