And this is why you should have Russian dictionary always on hand.
It could be worse though they could be Germans:D

"An unexpected turn"? Don't they have sonar on that thing? That Russian sub's so big, they must have spotted it from 5 miles away! 

Amazing crosshatching and general inking.
I'm sure Russ Heath (and Arthur Adams) made many an inker turn to alcohol.

Is the unexpected turn the encounter with the Soviet sub...or with the tentacles from below?

Considering they're asking who can speak Russian, I'd go with choice number 1 - the Soviet sub.

Besides, I'd bet the sub could do a lot more damage and do it a lot faster than the octo/squid/whatever below.
But... since this is Cold War stuff, Aquaman could be ordering the creature to grab the mini-sub, and make it appear the sub was crushed. (Yes - Aquaman, special agent of the CIA!)

Ah...glad you got part of the humor! The alternative line I was thinking was "Oh Boy...What else could go wrong?" - alluding to the rising tentacles at the bottom of the page.

Wowsers!  Love the contrast of the smaller sub with the larger one (blacks vs hatching).  Also the mixture of perspective.

Superb.  The texture technique alone is wildly impressive, creating a magnificent sense of scale, and power.
