MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. Russian submarines since January last year have spent twice as much time on combat duty as in the previous period, Vice-Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov has said.
"Since January 2015 and up to now the time they’ve spent on combat patrol missions increased almost twice," Fedotenkov said on the Rossiya-24 television channel.
Fedotenkov explained that the time Russian submarines spend on combat duty in various regions of the world ocean, including Arctic areas near the North Pole, "increased considerably."
Last spring it was announced that the intensity of Russian submarines’ combat duty missions in January 2014 through March 2015 had grown nearly 50% in contrast with the previous period.
