MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 22nd November, 2021) Russia's nuclear-powered submarine Kursk that sank in an accident in 2000 actually suffered from a collision with a NATO submarine, retired Admiral Vyacheslav Popov who commanded Russia's Northern Fleet in 1999-2001 told Sputnik.
The officially-recognized cause of the tragedy was a torpedo explosion.
"The submarine, which collided with Kursk, likely followed Kursk, but was unable to ensure safety in those sea conditions and all other conditions, it got too close, or the Kursk's maneuver led to a loss of contact ... I know its name with 90% probability, it was a NATO submarine and it was there, in the area where it collided with Kursk," Popov told Sputnik.
