MOSCOW, August 12 (Itar-Tass) — Admiral F.F. Ushakov Baltic Naval Institute in Russia’s westernmost city of Kaliningrad commemorates 118 crewmen of the Kursk nuclear submarine that sank in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000.
Among the tragedy’s victims were five graduates of the Baltic Naval Institute – Alexander Gudkov, Boris Geletin, Andrei Silogava, Oleg Nasikovsky and Sergei Fiterer. The eldest officer turned thirty and the youngest – twenty-three.
Relatives of the perished submariners, representatives of the Baltic Fleet command, teaching staff and students laid wreaths at memorial tables installed at the Museum of Military Glory in Kaliningrad and observed a minute of silence.
Commemorative ceremonies will take place in all fleets of the Russian Navy and in military districts.
