"Look at Russia’s resurgence under President Putin, its submarine activity has increased ten-fold in the North Atlantic. But that’s not all. In 2010, the Royal Navy had to respond once to a Russian Navy ship approaching UK territorial waters. Last year we had to respond 33 times It goes to show the increasing aggression, the increasing assertiveness of Russia, and how we have to ensure we give the right support to our Royal Navy in order to give them the tools to do the job and keep Britain safe," Williamson said on Thursday, speaking at the Sea Power conference in Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London.
