Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to meet in the Kremlin with participants in the Kursk salvaging after the completion of all works on raising of the wrecked submarine, the head of the Russia Federation was quoted as saying. He voiced his appreciation to the Russian Navy Command, as well as to all the participants in the operation for "successful completion of the main stage of the operation." In early October, the submarine was salvaged from the Barents Sea floor and delivered to the coast. It is expected that the sub will be installed in a special dock by the end of the week.
