Russia to send nuclear submarines to southern seas

WASHINGTON — Russia is planning to go back to the Soviet Union-era days, at least it seems so. Now, Russia plans to resume nuclear submarine patrols in the southern seas after a two-decade hiatus.

vladimir putin glasses [1]Reuters reports [2] that they will send Borei-class submarines to the southern hemisphere after President Vladimir Putin said he’ll deploy naval units in the Mediterranean Sea on a permanent basis in March.

However, only one submarine will be deployed as the other seven commissioned submarines are yet to be completed, set for 2020. Putin has stressed a return to having a more reliable armed force at his command and has only provoked the U.S.

President Barack Obama was embarrassed when Russia actually “reset [3]” relations with the U.S., when he had indicated that he would be the one turning things around.
