DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. November 10, 2016, 8:03 AM (IDT)

The Russian defense ministry said that a Dutch Walrus-class submarine was driven away Wednesday while 20km away from the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and its escorts, including the nuclear-powered Peter the Great missile cruiser. The fleet is on a mission to Syrian shores. The spokesman added that such “clumsy” attempts to maneuver close to the Russian ships could have resulted in an accident. A NATO official said the alliance’s navies have been monitoring the Russian fleet in recent weeks in a “measured and responsible way, as is customary”. He refused to elaborate on how NATO was doing that.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
