Lost on board. What happened to the crew of Moscow
The exact location was located by satellite radar based on an analysis of sea pollution by surfactants – fuels and oils that cover the surface of the sea above the crash site.
The space radar even makes it possible to see the silhouette of the Moskva cruiser, buried forever at a depth of 40-45 meters, according to the message of the adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
Eight days later, the Russian Defense Ministry said that “as a result of a fire” on the cruiser Moskva, one serviceman was killed, and 27 more people were missing.
