[Above story is from RT, a Russian government funded media outlet]

Lots of chatter on Twitter about this incident, with speculation that it might be why various world leaders have cancelled events. Some unsourced speculation about nuclear leaks

As of 11:03, only RT is leading with the story.

Nobody else even has it on their front page, although many are covering Mike Pence's emergency recall to Washington.

RT is reporting on the speculation, including a Tweet from conspiracist Luke Rudkowski:

RT downplays the speculation, but confirms Putin changed his plans because of the sub incident

I was gonna say.. of course, Putin would change plans. Can you find any confirmation of the UK stuff? I see a 4chan post but the link he gives doesn't say that, unless the tweet was deleted.

actually link doesn't work, I should clarify. but the twitter account doesn't say that.

U.S.-funded Radio Free Europe covers events in Russia. They're asking if the "research vessel" was really a spy sub.

BBC World news reported on it, but has no new relative information.
https://www-bbc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-europe-48844013?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQA#aoh=15621346099457&csi=1&referrer=https://www.google.com&amp_tf=From %1$s&ampshare=https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48844013

It is unfortunate that US mainstream news channels have become so entrenched with political filly-fally, that potentially significant world news is sidelined.

I watch BBC World news, as one of the few bastions left...to report on current world events.

Of course the irony is that the world information "web" is sooo accessible and immediate these days, yet the information churned-out is socially and politically localized.

just dawned on me we/i never heard the reason Pence stayed in Washington DC that day. so I googled it.
