The Russian Pacific Fleet Prosecutor’s Office has launched a probe into the AS-28 mini-submarine accident
The Russian Pacific Fleet Prosecutor’s Office has launched a probe into the AS-28 mini-submarine accident in which seven sailors were involved. Military prosecutors will have to find out all the details concerning the submergence of the mini-submarine and its inability to resurface after getting entangled in trawler traps, ropes and cables. The mini-submarine has been lifted onboard the Georgy Kozmin vessel for examination. A new conference is due to be held for reporters onboard the Georgy Kozmin. Military experts will tell everything what is permitted within the framework of the rescue operation. A Russian mini-submarine, which itself is a rescue vessel meant for saving submariners, lay at a depth of 190 meters for three days, Major Georgy Romanovich, the press secretary of the group of troops and forces in the North East, said. The seven Russians were saved with British help on Sunday when rescuers cut the mini-submarine free of tangled cables. The British experts who took part in the rescue operation have left Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for home. A British Air Force plane is also taking away the Scorpio-45 underwater submersible which was the main hero in the depths of the Bering Sea. Eight British military specialists who operated Scorpio-45 cut the mini-submarine free from tangled cable on Sunday. Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov decorated the rescuers with name watch. Kamchatka region Governor Mikhail Mashkovets presented them with merit certificates on behalf of the people of the Kamchatka region. An operation to lift the AS-28 mini-submarine was international. As a result, all the seven sailors stayed alive and are now in hospital for rehabilitation. The Russian Defence Minister told a news conference held at the Pacific fleet base in Vilyuchinsk that he would solicit the Russian Defence Ministry for decorating the British rescuers with Russia’s highest awards. In the meantime, the Russian sailors are making good recovery in a military hospital in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Colonel Viktor Lutsenko, the acting head of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky military hospital, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday that the sailors were in excellent health. “They’ve had a good night sleep, earlier they easily walked around the hospital territory and talked to their relatives, friends and reporters,” the doctor said. The sailors have been in hospital for three days. The third day is considered to be critical for people who survive emergency situations, according to medical canons. The doctors hope that the patients will develop no health problems. The sailors are welcome to stay in hospital for as long as they deem necessary for full recovery and rehabilitation.
