MOSCOW, June 1 (Itar-Tass) - Zones for combat patrol of strategic missile nuclear submarines of the Russian Navy in the world's oceans will be expanded significantly from 2014, a source at the General Staff of the Armed Forces told Itar-Tass on Saturday.

“As the Russian Navy receive the Borey class missile submarines, they will not only continue to patrol the Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, but will resume execution of combat missions in those regions of the world’s ocean, where in the late 90s of the last century used to be the Soviet Navy, and where they have ceased to appear following the collapse of the Soviet Union," the source said.
