I personally am not particularly alarmed about the increase in Russian submarine patrols.  The Cold War ended when I was a baby; today I am planning having my own family.  It's been a long time since the Cold War, things have changed, and I like how new alliances are forming.  Russia and India are wise to build an alliance to defend against China.  Of course, as a Canadian I worry about Russia's ambitions in the Arctic - as I am worried about the USA's ambitions and Denmark's ambitions.  But aside from that, I think it is unwise to cling to Cold War attitudes towards Russia.  We need to embrace Russia's return to ascendency, because the alternative is much worse.  And that alternative is spelled C-H-I-N-A.

According to some, Russian 30000 ton Typhoon class was a mistake, too. It must have consumed a lot of money.
I wonder about former Kirov, now Peter the Great class battlecruisers. Let me put it like this. What is that they can do now, and  they couldn't do if they were smaller.
