Lewis refuses to provide further details regarding the appearance of the Russian submarine, including the coordinates of where it appeared.
Quoted from Military Times, Lewis only confirmed that the submarine was seen surfacing in international waters close to Alaska.

On Wednesday (26/8), the appearance of a number of Russian warships in the Bering Sea also caused a stir among the fishing vessels that were operating there.
“We were told by several fishing vessels operating in the Bering Sea that they had seen the vessels and were worried. So they contacted us,” said US Coast Guard spokesman Kid Wadlow.

Wadlow did not provide detailed information about the range of the training area and the number of vessels seen in the waters near Alaska.
