KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) – Heightened activity of Russia’s nuclear submarines around the world are due to the necessity to deter security threats aimed at Russia, Naval Commander Viktor Chirkov said Wednesday.

"Heightened intensity of naval service in different regions of the world’s oceans by [Russian] nuclear submarines is justified by the necessity to guarantee the deterrence of security threats against Russia," Chirkov said.

Wednesday's statement came amid strained relations between Russia and the NATO military bloc over the Ukrainian crisis. Following the integration of Crimea, a Black Sea peninsula, into Russia after a referendum in 2014, NATO has increased its military presence close to Russia's borders, accusing Moscow of meddling in Ukraine's internal affairs.
