The hydrographic vessel “Romuald Muklevich” sailed to the Barents Sea for the second stage of the complex expedition of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Geographical Society called “Remember the War”.

During the exit, which will last about 10 days, the hydrographers plan to search for the M-Malyutka type submarines of the Northern Fleet that were killed during the Great Patriotic War: M-122 (perished in 1943) and M-175 (perished in 1942) .), and also survey the locations of the German minefields “Bantos-A” and “Bantos-B”.

In previous years, while searching for the M-122 submarine, several sunken ships and vessels were found, including the bow of the Soviet transport “Tbilisi”, which died in 1945. However, the “Baby” itself was not found then.

The Severomorians will carry out research work along the way with the solution of planned tasks for the oceanographic study of the Barents Sea in the interests of general navigation.

The spring sailing of vessels of the Northern Fleet’s hydrographic service is traditionally accompanied by training of young specialists on the principle of a “floating university”. This year, the trainees are cadets of the final course of the navigational and hydrographic faculty of the Peter the Great Marine Corps.

The joint complex expedition of the Northern Fleet and the Russian Geographical Society takes place in the Arctic in several stages. The first of them involved the Ilya Muromets icebreaker and the Elbrus multifunctional logistic support vessel. Currently, they continue to operate according to the plan of the expedition to the Barents Sea. The results of their work will be the starting point for further research in the Arctic.
