MOSCOW, July 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry will carry out works off Crimea’s southern coast on July 17-26 to search for Soviet submarines that were sunk during World War II, the ministry’s press office reported on Monday.
“The Russian Defense Ministry will search for the submarines that sank near Cape Aitodor and in Kalamita Bay to memorialize Navy sailors,” the press office said.
“The search works are intended to find the exact places of sunken submarines and also identify submarines A-3, SHCH-214 and S-32 with the crews,” the ministry’s spokesman said.
The search effort will involve ships and vessels of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, and the expedition will be held as part of the all-Russian 2014 Memory Vigil.
Memorable plaques with the lists of crew members will be installed on the boards of discovered and identified submarines while the submarines themselves will be declared military burial sites and the places of their wreckage will be designated on all naval maps.
At these locations, underwater works will be prohibited while ships and vessels of the Russian Navy will pass these areas with their flags at half-mast and will give military honors to Russia’s perished defenders.
