Giant 4-kursk Tandem 30 Miles Off Kola Gulf

The Giant 4 barge carrying the wrecked Kursk submarine is found 30 miles away from the Kola gulf, Vyacheslav Popov, commander of the Northern fleet, said on Tuesday. Now the tandem is moving as scheduled to its destination -- the Belokamenka bay, opposite the Roslyakovo settlement. Vice-Admiral Mikhail Motsak, in charge of the salvage taskforce, told journalists that the sea is calm: sea state 1. The barge-sub tandem is approaching the entry to the Kola gulf. Motsak said that the towing speed varies from 2.5 to 4 knots. The scheduled time of arrival at Belokamenka is 8:00, Moscow time, on October 10. It can be "two hours earlier", said he.
