#Russia says 14 dead in deep-sea fire in its waters aboard "research submarine."
#Russia media reports now identifying the vessel as the nuclear-powered Losharik. rbc.ru/society/02/07/…
Describing the Losharik as a 'research vessel' is a bit disingenuous. It is reputed to be the most silent and hard-to-detect submarine in the navy of #Russia -- able to dive to a depth of 6,000 meters and tap or cut telecom cables on the ocean floor.
Some background (in Russian) and purported file photos of the Losharik: militaryrussia.ru/blog/topic-543…
No abnormal levels of radiation detected following #Russia #nuclear sub accident, according to officials in #Norway.
#Russia President Putin, meeting with his defense minister, says seven of the 14 dead held high ranks and two had been awarded the country's highest military honor. "This is not a regular vessel, as we know, it's a scientific research vessel. It's a highly professional crew."
