Russian Submarine Assists Small Boat
Russian submarine K-119 Voronezh assisted a small boat during a storm in the White Sea on June 8th, reports RT.com.
When the crew of the small vessel realised that it was running low on fuel, the crew members sent a distress signal to their home port of Arkhangelsk. The authorities from the port sent two ships and a transport helicopter to help, but the first to arrive was the Russian submarine K-119 Voronezh.
The four crew members and one passenger from the Barents-1000 boarded the submarine which took their boat in tow.
The Oscar-class nuclear-propelled cruise-missile submarine K-119 Voronezh of the Russian Northern Fleet, which is currently on her way to base in Severodvinsk, was conducting training in the area.
