Russian submarine fire mystery intensifies after sources claim it was sent to kill the internet


A very strange thing occurred in the frigid waters of the Barent Sea this week, and we may never know the entire tale.

That’s because Russia has deemed the details of this harrowing incident as a “state secret”, which is just KGB talk for “nefarious and clandestine behavior”.  What we do know is that a Russian submarine, (of some sort), had a fire onboard, and 14 Russian sailors died before the vessel was finally back in port.

From there, we have only questions without official answers, leaving the world to begin piecing together what is actually going on.

A possible reason for Russia’s caginess? Multiple sources are now claiming the sub was an AS-12 “Losharik,” a nuclear-powered submarine some speculate was designed to cut the undersea cables that deliver internet to the world.

Russian media outlets RBC and Novaya Gazeta have both cited anonymous sources who claim the submarine was a Losharik, and while the sub has been in operation since 2003, Russia has never come out and declared its official purpose.

That hasn’t stopped the U.S. and other Western officials from conjecturing about it, though.

For years, they’ve warned that Russia has been surveying undersea cables, and experts have called out the Losharik by name as possibly playing a role in future missions to disrupt those cables.

We know from the Mueller report that Russia is interested obsessed with attempting to undermine American democracy.  They spent inordinate amount of time and resources attempting to do just that in 2016 and 2018.  We can only presume that the same will be true of 2020.

But what if their plans no longer involve an army of internet trolls and paid advertisement of disinformation through Facebook?  What if their plan is more physical and literal.

Should Russia cut these cables in the days preceding the 2020 election, there is no telling what sort of state of vulnerability America would find herself in.
