Russian Prosecutor-General Vladimir Ustinov is to leave for Roslyakovo Monday to supervise the investigation on board the submarine Kursk, reported Ustinov's senior assistant Leonid Troshin. The investigating group consists of 40 people, including investigators from the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office, the Prosecutor's Office of the Leningrad Military District and the Northern Fleet, and 10 pyrotechnics and forensic experts. Investigators will be the first to step on board the nuclear submarine, which will be docked by the time they arrive at Roslyakovo.
