Second undersea telephone / internet cable damaged cutting off Shetland

BBC news reports that an undersea cable connecting Shetland to the mainland has been damaged. Last week the other undersea cable to Shetland from the north (Faroe Islands) was damaged. Between the two that now leaves Shetland entirely cut off from internet and telephone. The news report says it was probably a 'fishing boat' that damaged the lines.

It could be, but my worry is that it may be a Russian attack. This has cut off Shetland, the most northerly part of the UK from the rest of the country. It is, like the channel isles during WWII for Germany, part of the UK that is most at risk from Russian sea and air activity and the Royal Navy & RAF do keep a close eye on the area as there are frequent hostile Russian activities.

Let's pray it was just a fishing boat. :pray.

Nope definitely not a fishing boat. I just launched a thread on the MULTIPLE cable cutting incidents in the North Sea/Arctic Circle/Norway area and a certain submarine incident that happened to the Russian sub Losharik back in July 1 of 2019.

That class of sub was experimental at the time, and designed to do this.

BTW it was 2 separate cables that were cut off the Shetland Isles which are in the North Sea near Norway's Faroes, and part of the whole area just beside Russia's Arctic sub base where the Losharik was towed for repairs.

As the real estate agents like to say, it's all about Location, Location, Location!

Russian trawlers used for other-than-fishing purposes :eek
