UK, Norway sign deal to counter undersea threats from Russian spy ring

The U.K. and Norway on Thursday agreed to bolster cooperation to counter underwater threats amid concern that Russian spies are intent on targeting the NATO allies.

Speaking to reporters, British Defense Minister Ben Wallace claimed Russia has “a specific naval program designed to both look at and potentially sabotage or attack critical infrastructure belonging to its adversaries.”

The British defense minister also said the Russian program has a number of submarines and “spy ships” that are “specifically designed” to wreak havoc on critical infrastructure.
