In a time of escalating global conflicts, one US Navy Admiral is pointing her attention towards Russian activity.

She warns both of high movement of Russian ships and the potential for the US military and that of its allies to be at a disadvantageous position.

Per Daily Mail:

There is now more Russian naval activity in Europe than at any point in the Cold War, a top US and NATO military officer has warned.

Navy Admiral Michelle Howard, who heads NATO’s Allied Joint Force Command in Naples and commands US forces in Europe and Africa, said Russia’s strident maneuvers could leave the West at a disadvantage.

Howard continues to discuss other areas affected by Russian mobility:

It’s not just the Mediterranean that has seen appearances by Russian ships: The country has stepped up patrols in the north Atlantic and Arctic region, Howard said.

And it has significant out-of-area submarine deployments around Europe, as well as increasing submarine movement in the Black Sea, she said.

That creates a risk that NATO members will focus only on the Russian ships at their borders rather than creating a cohesive, unified strategy to deal with the wider picture, she said.
