Three other bodies of sailors killed in the wrecked Kursk submarine have been retrieved from its third compartment over the past 24 hours, according to Vladimir Mulov, the Northern Fleet Prosecutor. Thus, 71 bodies have been retrieved from the submarine over the period of works in the Roslyakovo drydock, with 65 bodies identified. 12 other bodies were retrieved from the Kursk's 9th compartment last September. 35 bodies of the crew members remain unfound. According to Mulov, there is a hope of finding several other bodies, since the sub's 3rd compartment has not been completely examined. Currently lower docks of the 3rd compartment are being cleared out.
For the time being, one needs to finish the construction of the section that is 100 kilometres long. On October 17, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in an interview with RND that the project would be completed
