A distress signal was sent from the 11-metre, Arkhangelsk-registered boat Barents on June 8. The vessel attempted to sail around bad weather but ran out of fuel, he said.
Arkhangelsk regional rescue centre sent boats and a helicopter to the site but the submarine was closest, on a combat training assignment in the area. It reached the stranded in less than an hour and took them on board. They were found in no need of medical treatment.
This was not the first such rescue. In January, the nuclear submarine Nizhny Novgorod rescued three fishermen in the northern Barents Sea. In 2012, the nuclear submarine Daniil Moskovsky came to the aid of crew from the fishing vessel Rybachy, which had sunk in the same sea.
