MURMANSK, November 19 (Itar-Tass) — Submariners of Russia’s Northern Fleet have come to the aid of the Rybachy fishing vessel, which lost speed in the Barents Sea and started to draw water into the engine room, chief of the Northern Fleet information support group of the press service of the Western Military District Captain 1st Rank Vadim Serga told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The Daniil Moskovsky nuclear-powered submarine, which was in close proximity to the incident area, came to the aid of the civilian vessel. The submarine was fulfilling combat training tasks in the area. In adverse weather conditions – with strong gusts of wind up to 15 metres per second, with seas higher than three points and poor visibility – the submariners on November 18 conducted a rescue operation, taking on board the crew of the Rybachy vessel. The ship that was sailing on the fishing route from Liinakhamari to Teriberka, sank.
The navy men of the Northern Fleet have not for the first time come to the rescue of civilians. In November 2011, in difficult storm conditions in the Barents Sea, the crew of a rescue helicopter of naval aviation brought ashore an injured sailor who was picked from the Bereg Nadezhny (Coast of Hope) distressed refrigerator, and the crew of the Ilyushin IL-38 antisubmarine aircraft successfully conducted an operation to search for the Captain Kuznetsov dry-cargo ship that went missing in the White Sea. In April 2012, a Northern Fleet helicopter evacuated a seriously ill sailor from the M-0124 Ametist civilian vessel. In September 2012, the crew of a rescue helicopter Ka-27 came to the aid of a Murmansk resident who was fishing on a lake near the Teriberka settlement and needed urgent hospitalisation.
