Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said Monday he intended to "put forward for a decoration the crew of the salvaged deep-sea vessel, along with those who took active part in the rescue operation." Following a briefing, the minister met with British rescue teams, the Priz crew, and their families. Two U.S. planes have already left the Kamchatka Peninsula (Russia's Far East) and two more are ready for departure, a spokesman for the Russian Navy Pacific Fleet said. A British cargo plane carrying the Scorpio underwater robot, which freed the Russian mini-sub, is scheduled to depart Kamchatka on Tuesday. Six of the seven-member crew were taken to a military hospital in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for observation and rehabilitation, a hospital official said. Viktor Lutsenko, acting director of the hospital, said the crew was well and would remain in the hospital for at least three days. The rescued AS-28 mini-sub (the Priz) will be towed to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the administrative center of the Kamchatsky region, within a few hours. The rescue operation of the Priz submersible, trapped 190 meters (620 ft) underwater, lasted for more than two days. The vessel resurfaced at 4:20 p.m., local time, (3:20am GMT).
