In mid-October, the Royal Navy had to bring in a state of high combat readiness in connection with the passage of the Russian aircraft carrier group of the Northern fleet headed by the cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov”, which went to the campaign in the Mediterranean sea for 5-6 months.

The British authorities said at the time that are afraid of provocations in connection with sharp statements of the head of the foreign Ministry Boris Johnson.

Today, the Sunday Times, citing a source in the Navy of the Kingdom reported that the Russian ships joined three submarines equipped with cruise missiles.

Just last week, Navy has recorded two multi-purpose nuclear submarine NATO classification “the Shark” (in Russia – “Pike-B”) and one diesel-electric class “Kilo” or “Varshavyanka”. All three are equipped with cruise missiles “Caliber”, which, according to London, the ship’s band to strike targets in Syria.

To date, three of the submarine joined the Russian carrier battle group, which is in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean along the coast of North Africa.

It is worth noting that neither the defense Ministry nor the Kremlin is not misleading about the purpose of cruise ships in the Mediterranean. However, the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said earlier that the courts do not have to protect the skies over Syria – this work is done by deployed air defense system.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the ships can be used for shelling of Aleppo. The Russian foreign Ministry reassured the Russian ships were in the Mediterranean sea.
