The Avia.pro agency reported that Russia had obtained what the agency described as a sonar countermeasure device, which the US Navy submarine had allegedly abandoned when it left the area.
The report comes amid tensions along the Russia-Ukraine border as the US has repeatedly warned that Russian forces may be poised to invade the country.
The device was reportedly found off the island of Urup in the Kuril Island chain. The news agency claimed that the US submarine had fired the device after Russian forces used a weapon against the submarine.
