American submarines Hartford and Connecticut got stuck in the Arctic ice, when they were performing drills, practicing the scenario of striking Russia.

The American command considers atomic submarines to be the pride of the US Navy, because they combine stealth technologies with huge firepower (the submarines are armed with cruise missiles), but these ships had nothing to oppose to conventional ice. According to the plan of the exercises, the submarines had to float to the surface and give a volley on conditional Russia, but the thick ice cover prevented it.

Earlier, US Admiral James Pitts stated that the presence of the American fleet in the Arctic region is a guarantee of security of the European Union countries.
