MOSCOW, June 8 /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry is surprised at reports of some Russian and foreign media that the British Royal Navy and its NATO allies have found a Russian sub in the North Sea, a source at the ministry’s press and information department told TASS on Wednesday.

"The Russian Defense Ministry is surprised that the British Royal Navy and its NATO allies had to take joint efforts to discover a submarine, which was moving up-top at a slow speed," the ministry said.

"It would be strange if the sub had gone unnoticed by the British Royal Navy and its NATO allies. The more so that the merchant ships from various countries, which were on head-on and parallel courses, stuck to the long-standing maritime tradition of welcoming our sailors in the Barents, Norwegian and North Seas during the several days of the journey," the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The Staryi Oskol diesel electric submarine (project 636.3) is sailing to its home base at the Russian Black Sea fleet after trials in the Baltic and Northern fleets.

The sub is moving up-top at a slow speed and is being escorted by the Altai tug-boat, the ministry added.
