The sunken submarine was found within the German minefield “Bantos-A,” where previously there were unsuccessful searches for military equipment, the Head of the Department of the Hydrographic Service of the Northern Fleet told this.
“The boat was badly damaged in the explosion, most likely detonated ammunition. The hull broke into three parts,” he said. The Head of the Department of the Hydrographic Service of the Northern Fleet said that the ship is located at a depth of more than 100 meters. Because of this, its survey was carried out only with the help of television uninhabited underwater vehicles. He noted that now it is impossible to accurately determine the direction of movement of the boat because its bow and middle are turned relative to the stern by more than 100 degrees.
