Rear Admiral Andrew Lennon, Nato submarine forces commander has warned Putin’s submarine activity has been significantly boosted by “strong investment” in the Kremlin’s naval wing – which fell into disrepute in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

He said: “Russian submarine activity is higher now in the last three years than it has been since the cold war.

“What we have observed over the past three years are more deployments annually of Russian submarines away from their local waters than we have observed in the prior decade.”

Russia does not border the mediterranean sea, however Moscow has managed to muscle into the region after developing a naval base in Syria thanks to Putin ally Bashar-al Assad.

And NATO officials have grown increasingly concerned over the former soviet state’s activities around data cables between the US and Europe.

Admiral Lennon claimed Nato had spotted “a lot of activity” from six of the Kremlin’s new Kilo-class diesel-electric submarines in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean.

He added Russia had “clearly taking an interest in Nato nations’ undersea infrastructure” including the US-European data links.

The submarine buildup includes one converted ballistic missile submarine capable of despatching smaller research vessels.
