Russian nuclear submarines reach Californian coast

Russian nuclear submarines have quietly reached the Californian coastline, according to the Russian Defence Ministry.

The submarines were conducting an exercise near American military bases with the objective of avoiding detection, a submarine squadron commander told Zvezda (a Russian military TV network). reports: According to a submarine officer filmed in the show, the Navy command ordered to take position in the vicinity of US military bases during exercises.

“This mission has been accomplished, the submarines showed up in the set location in the ocean and returned to base,” the commander of the submarine squadron, Sergey Starshinov, told Zvezda.

Asked if the submarines had managed to stay off the radar during the mission, Starshinov replied: “Yes. This is our objective – to come and go undetected.” The Navy commander said the Russian vessels came “close enough” to American shores but did not violate US maritime borders, remaining in neutral waters.

The date and location of the covert mission have not been disclosed, but the channel said the Russian nuclear-powered submarines “reached the very coastline of the US.”

Shchuka-B submarine has been commissioned for the Soviet Navy in 1986. The nuclear-powered sub is capable of launching Kalibr or Granat cruise missiles, engaging underwater targets with its 553mm torpedoes, and staying submerged for up to 100 days, according to open sources.

As with many Russian nuclear submarines, the information of their status as well as current and past deployments is sparse. It is understood that several submarines of this class are being operated by the Russian Navy or undergoing modernization. One Shchuka-B submarine was leased to India, where it entered service under the name INS ‘Chakra’.

In 2016, a senior US Navy official complained the military branch cannot ensure full awareness of Russian submarine deployments which were at the level unseen since the Cold War.

“The submarines that we’re seeing are much more stealthy,” Admiral Mark Ferguson, commander of US Naval Forces in Europe at the time, told CNN. The Russians “have more advanced weapons systems, missile systems that can attack land at long ranges,” and their operational capabilities were getting better “as they range farther from home waters.”


  1. And this it’s what happens when you have a govt that buys weapons that work instead of what theyre paid to push through Congress…not to mention alot of their tech was sold too them from our traitors in office and Trump is not who I’m speaking of. Look up info on Russia’s silicon valley and who it was that pushed that brilliant idea through Obama’s state dept. Uranium one was just a small piece of the puzzle.

  2. I read a report which somehow crossed my path, quite oddly ,which contained the absolute assurance that no nation ,or collection if nations could ever stand a chance if overpowering America’s military They have defenses so secret that they can obliterate the enemy ,like taking candy from a baby .That’s kept secret whilst the reports of the enemies strengths are publicised.

    • I’ve read a few reports like that .
      Then I scrutinized who or what entity created the reports and it always needed back at some Soros funded think tank or Halliburton et al.
      I’d say that America has lost the plot and now all the plotters are in damage control as the narrative dries up .
      Russia doesn’t want war ..merica runs on defense spending that attacks weaker nations .
      If USA had the ability to counter opposition weapons …we’d have watched the use of the weapons already .

  3. FUCKING HILARIOUS…… wake up amewhorica Putin has got your number… lol.. what part of pull your head out of your prideful ass doesn’t amewhorica understand??….
