19. Russia has 1 operational fast attack submarine built since the year 2000.

The one built in 2000 is based on a 1980's design (and that design was a piece of shit back then) and would be completely ineffective against our Virginia and Seawolf class submarines, or even our elderly Los Angeles class boats.

They do have 3 more modern ballistic missile subs, but the chances of those subs patrolling in the Atlantic ocean are fairly slim.

People are reading too much into this article. Yes, Russia meddled in our election and got the dumbest possible candidate elected. But to presume that Russia is economically or militarily capable of challenging the United States for anything is beyond absurd.
