An unknown sunken submarine was discovered at the bottom of the Baltic Sea

The mine defense ship (minesweeper) of the Baltic Fleet of the Russian Navy “Alexander Obukhov” discovered a sunken submarine of unknown origin at the bottom of the Baltic. Russian sailors are actively looking for “forgotten” mines and other dangerous objects at the bottom of the Baltic. And it’s right, because one gas pipeline is already passing along the bottom of this sea, delivering gas from Russia to Germany, and the second is being completed.




It should be noted that serious opposition from the “peace-loving” NATO bloc and its satellites to the establishment of relations between Moscow and Berlin has been going on for a decade. Therefore, the search for possible "surprises" from "well-wishers" by the Russian military sailors is a necessary and important matter. God save, as they say, saves.

In addition, during the course of the main work, sometimes real discoveries are made. As for the discovered submarine, then, according to experts, this is a German submarine from the Second World War, during which it was at the bottom.

As Vadim Malysh, co-chair of the Underwater Research Club of the World Ocean Museum, who had previously studied this area of ​​the sea, specified, he cannot say for sure whether this is the same object that was recorded earlier or a new one that has not been studied before. The thing is that visibility in the waters of the Baltic Sea, depending on the weather and time of year, is almost zero, and over the past centuries a lot of things have appeared at the bottom.

If you work sloppy flippers, then you raise a large cloud of turbidity, which then settles for a very long time. Accordingly, when working with a deep-sea apparatus, the screws that lift this turbidity from the bottom work very intensively

- explained the Kid.

In turn, Vice-Admiral Nikolai Khromov, chairman of the council of submarine veterans, is absolutely sure that the submarine discovered is not Soviet.

This boat is most similar to U-type submarines that took part in hostilities in the Baltic Sea during World War II.

- said Khromov.


It should be recalled that the city of Baltiysk (formerly Pillau) during the Third Reich was a training center for German submariners. So the submarine could sink in this area for completely different reasons, both as a result of a military conflict, and from the actions of its own crew. So, to find out the details, it will be necessary to carry out more than one dive or another underwater study.

    Memoirs of Hitler's submariners should be read, there about these German submarines that sank in the area of ​​Pillau and the Konigsberg spit were described in detail, down to the details of the disasters and the names of the victims. About five years ago I read such a book on the Internet, including chapters on training and retraining in Pillau, first as a senior officer, and then as a commander of a submarine with reinforced air defense (who was sent from "sunny" France for this), now I don't remember the name.
    This is, most likely, near the spit training "U-bot type II" from the sunken (it seems - as a result of a collision or from a strong impact on the ground during an urgent training dive, one submarine was even raised twice by the Nazis after that, but there somewhere "on area ", next to it, there should be a second one - not a training one, a combat one, sunk during the combat coordination of the crew and not raised - according to the memoirs of the German submarine commander I read) during the war, in the process of combat training - the Germans took it seriously in the Baltic, too, almost until the very end of the war, they were engaged in it!

    It's good that when laying gas pipelines, at last, OUR SOVIET submarines, missing in action during the war, were found (including those of the Tsar, during the First World War - the missing "Shark" was also, like, found ?!)!
    It is only a pity that mothers and wives, children are the closest relatives of the dead Soviet submariners, during the post-war many Soviet decades, during their lifetime they did not wait for news of their sons, husbands, brothers who died in the military campaign!
    But we all of them, all these years, remembered and remember - until our last hour we are waiting for news of the place and details of their death, and we are ALWAYS proud of our fathers and grandfathers, great-grandfathers, the Winners of the "common European" fascism!
