MOSCOW, April 10 – RIA Novosti. British tabloid The Sun has published an article about a “secret Russian flotilla” of submarines, which allegedly can “cripple” and “plunge into chaos” the United Kingdom by cutting submarine Internet cables.
According to the newspaper, this flotilla was allegedly created to deliver a “catastrophic in its consequences” blow to the West in the event of a war.

“We've all heard this before, nobody cuts internet cables,” said James Agar.

“We have a government that continues to destroy our army,” lamented The Flumps.
