America’s most senior naval officer in Europe, Adm. James Foggo, said Friday that he was "concerned" about some of Russia’s newer and more advanced fleet of submarines.

"Russia is not 10 feet tall but they do have assets that keep me vigilant, concerned. One of them is in the undersea domain," Foggo, the commander of US Naval Forces Europe, told reporters at the Pentagon.

"We’ve seen creation of new classes of all sorts of submarines and ships. I’m more concerned with submarine warfare," Foggo said earlier on Friday while addressing the Atlantic Council in Washington.

"Russians have produced the new Dolgorukiy-class submarine. They’ve produced the Severodvinsk-class submarine. They’ve produced the new Kilo hybrid-class submarines," Foggo told reporters at the Pentagon.
