Towing is provided by tugboats – “OZERNY 213” tug, “RIVER 84” pusher, and “REIDOVY 5” belaying. The crew of the Sviyaga floating dock fulfills all assigned tasks during the passage of the White Sea-Baltic Canal. This was reported to the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, at a working meeting that took place in the Admiralty.

“Earlier, the Sviyaga floating dock with the K-3 submarine successfully completed the first stage of towing from the Kola Bay to Belomorsk. Currently, the second stage of towing is underway with the passage of the White Sea-Baltic Canal. After passing the canal, the dock with the submarine will arrive in St. Petersburg at the Severnaya Verf. There the submarine will be withdrawn from the floating dock for subsequent towing to Kronstadt, where it will become a museum. The main command of the Navy receives regular reports on the progress of the towing, ”said Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

Along the route, the crew of the motor ship “Ozerny-213”, which provides towing, sent their greetings in verse to the crew of the floating dock “Sviyaga” and the elder on board. The greeting expressed admiration for the Russian submariners and a tribute to the K-3 submarine.

For reference: “Leninsky Komsomol” – the first Soviet and the third in the world nuclear submarine. It was laid down on September 24, 1955 in Severodvinsk, launched on August 9, 1957. This submarine is 63 years old. In 1961, she went to her first combat service in the Atlantic. A year later, she made the first ever passage under the ice of the Arctic Ocean.
In 1991, the boat was withdrawn from the Northern Fleet. In 2005, K-3 was delivered to the water area of ​​the Nerpa shipyard (a branch of the Zvezdochka Shipyard). In 2010, the commander-in-chief of the Navy decided not to dispose of the K-3, but to preserve it for history.
