Russia Believes It Is High Time To Adopt International Safe Sailing Rules For Nuclear Submarines

Pavel Sazhinov, chairman of the Murmansk regional Duma (Murmansk is a regional centre in the northern part of European Russia), is for an early adoption of international safe sailing rules for nuclear submarines. He said this in an interview with RIA Novosti on Thursday. Sazhinov on Thursday received from the Russian president's hands the Badge of Honour. The presidential decree, according to the Murmansk lawmaker, stresses that this award is given him "for a personal contribution to the strengthening of Russia's statehood and lawmaking activity". Sazhinov himself thinks that this acknowledged his role in rendering aid to the families of dead Kursk seamen and also in helping to establish the causes of the tragedy. The most probable cause of the Kursk disaster, Sazhinov thinks, is a collision with a foreign submarine. Throughout all the history of nuclear submarines, he said, over 20 collisions have been registered between Russian and foreign submarines, above all American and British ones. "And all of them occurred where our submarines were training or even in our territorial waters," Sazhinov emphasised. So he had repeatedly raised at various levels, including at a session of NATO's Parliamentary Assembly, the question of working out measures to ensure safe sailing for nuclear submarines.
