Russia Monitors American and British Warships in the Barents Sea

The Russian navy is monitoring the operations of the first NATO warships to sail the Barents Sea since the 1980s, according to The Moscow Times.

American and British vessels are currently asserting freedom of navigation in the Barents Sea, the US Navy states, following anti-submarine drills in the Norwegian Sea. Russia’s Northern Fleet confirms that it is monitoring the NATO warships.

Norway did not participate in the Norwegian Sea drill, nor are Norwegian vessels involved in the Barents Sea voyage.
