Russian Belgorod sub with Poseidon torpedoes could lead to a new cold war in the ocean - CNN

The US channel CNN said that the Belgorod submarine, carrying Poseidon nuclear torpedoes on board, could significantly expand the capabilities of the Russian navy, imposing a new Cold War in the world’s oceans.

“If the Belgorod can successfully expand Russia’s fleet capabilities, it will set the stage for the next decade to unleash a Cold War in the depths of the ocean…,” the CNN piece said.

The channel refers to the Congressional Research Service (CRS) report, which states that the Russian submarine is capable of carrying up to eight Poseidon strategic nuclear torpedoes.

Notably, military experts in the West have already recognised the Belgorod as the largest (184 metres) and most dangerous submarine in the world.
