Northern Fleet Admits Unidentified Sailors' Remains May Be Buried In Common Grave

The Northern Fleet does not rule out that the remains of the dead Kursk sailors will be buried in a common grave. The Northern Fleet press service reported Wednesday that this issue was being discussed. The press service added that the bodies of the crewmen who were in the first and second compartments of the submarine at the moment of explosion had suffered most and were unlikely to be found. In addition, investigative groups working in the second and third compartments have discovered parts of the bodies whose identification is hardly possible. Both the Northern Fleet top brass and relatives of the perished sailors have spoken out for burying the unidentified remains in a common grave, the press service reported. The final decision on the grave's location, whether at sea or in the Vidyaevo settlement from where the submarine last started off, will be adopted upon the end of the investigation. And then it will become clear how many dead sailors will find their last sanctuary in the common grave.
