‘ 195 of 201 Decommissioned Soviet-Era Submarines are Disposed ‘

Russia’s Rosatom Corporation is nearing to complete the disposal of Soviet-made decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines and support vessels.

Currently, 195 of the 201 decommissioned submarines have been disposed. The demolition of all the decommissioned nuclear submarines and 14 technical support vessels is due to be completed by 2020.

“We have started the disposal of technical support vessels and depot ships. By 2020, we are expected to complete the disposal of all 14 support ships decommissioned from the Northern and the Pacific Fleets as well as two Atomflot support ships,” Rosatom CEO Sergei Kirienko said during the “70th anniversary of the Russian Atom” forum in Chelyabinsk.

“195 of the 201 submarines have been dismantled and recycled. Six submarines are left. Now we have no vessels standing in queue for dismantling. In 1999, when Rosatom was charged with the disposal there were 120 submarines waiting,” Kirienko said.

In 2014, the disposal of the “Volodarsky” depot ship was completed. Now, the disposal of the “Lepse” depot ship has begun. Within six months, it will be discharged of nuclear fuel. Then it will be prepared for wet storage before the disposal.

Kirienko also pointed out that under the “Nuclear radioactive safety 2” program new equipment and technology were developed, including the recycling technology for the uranium-beryllium fuel from project 705 submarines which were equipped with liquid-metal reactors.

The need for the disposal of nuclear submarines and depot ships emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union. At that time, military spending was significantly reduced.

More than 200 submarines built-in the 1950-1980s, and a large number of support vessels, were decommissioned from the Russian navy.

' Malaysian Airlines Site of Crash Was Within Zone of Two Operational S200 Anti-Aircraft Systems '

“Russian radio-technical facilities during July 17 were recording the work of the 9s18 Kupol radar station of the Buk-M1 squadron, stationed in the area of the Styla settlement (30 km south of Donetsk),” the ministry added.

 

The ministry stressed that technical features of the Buk-M1 air defense system allow it to exchange information between the squadrons of one battalion. “Thus, the launch of the missiles could also be made from all the squadrons, located in the Avdeyevka settlement (8 km north of Donetsk) or in Gruzsko-Zaryanskoye (25 km east of Donetsk),” Russian Defense Ministry stressed.
