HMM: Russian Navy Submarine Surfaces Off Alaska; Likely Same One That Fired Cruise Missile Earlier In Exercise. “The circumstances of the surfacing are unclear. It is not normal for submarines to come to the surface near another country’s coast. USNORTHCOM’s statements on Twitter raise questions as to whether something is wrong: ‘We have not received any requests for assistance from the Russian Navy or other mariners in the area. We always stand ready to assist those in distress.’ This may imply that there is an emergency aboard which the U.S. Navy is aware of.”
