Surprising and rare scene in France. A Russian submarine has been spotted on the surface off Brittany. The French Navy’s Normandie frigate escorted the aircraft out of French waters with the help of Spanish and British allies.
“It’s a classic arrangement, insofar as the Bay of Biscay corresponds to our area of responsibility. We have to control the military activities that take place there and that is why the Normandie frigate is deployed, ”we learn in a video posted on social networks.
If this may seem worrying in the context of the war in Ukraine, the Navy is reassuring. According to her, the transit of submarines is not “a rare event”.
