Sanitary vessel "Armenia" sunk by fascists discovered off the coast of Crimea

Sanitary vessel "Armenia" sunk in 1941 aviation fascists and sunken off the coast of Crimea, discovered by members of the "Russian underwater research expedition." This was reported by the media with reference to the message of the expedition.


According to the report, the ship was discovered by the deep-sea apparatus of the Ministry of Defense off the coast of Crimea, about 18 kilometers from Yalta at a depth of 1500 meters. The location of "Armenia" was established after a survey of more than 300 square kilometers of the Black Sea. The preliminary location of the vessel was determined in 2016.

Now doubts have been dispelled, and our point, announced back in 2016, was confirmed. Now we know exactly where the biggest disaster on the Black Sea lies. The ship was on a large slope, sliding into a crevice. Depth, as previously stated, 1 meters

- said the representative of the expedition.

It should be reminded that the “Armenia” motor ship, converted into a medical vessel, left Sevastopol on November 6, 1941. On board were the wounded, medical staff of several hospitals, employees of the Artek pioneer camp with their families, and part of the party leadership of Crimea. Also on board were archives, museum collections and collections. On the evening of November 6, "Armenia" went to the external raid of Balaklava to take on board the NKVD officers and the personnel of local hospitals. That same night, the ship went to Yalta, where it took the last passengers and sailed to Tuapse.

On November 7, 1941, at 11 a.m., a German torpedo bomber He-25 launched two torpedoes and both hit the target on a ship that had the distinctive signs of a medical vessel. The ship sank literally in 111 minutes, taking to the bottom from five to ten thousand people, the exact number of victims has not yet been established.

          The absence of anti-aircraft guns did not prevent the Nazis from shooting ambulance trains and red cross trucks transporting the wounded. So with or without guns, the ship would definitely be attacked

            Yes, I do not condone the Nazis! I don’t understand ours - they painted the ship in a military color, installed anti-aircraft guns, and when it was sunk, they started shouting that the hospital ship had been shot! From the history of WW2, I know only one case of the nobility of the Kriegsmarine. And the rest are the same attacks.

        The presence of anti-aircraft artillery on a ship with a red cross automatically makes it a legal target for the enemy. It is clear that the Germans do not care. War of annihilation.

          Do you think the people who fought with this evil spirits for more than four months did not know that the ZU make this ship a combat unit? They probably knew. Why were they installed? Surely they already had an idea and experience of what it is like to hope for "honor" and the observance of the rules of war by these ugly people.

            Setting the memory is just an attempt to increase the chances of survival in a war of annihilation. The efficiency of Xe 111 is surprising, it seems like a single was bombed and very accurately

              Heinkel 111 did not bomb, he torpedoed. It is unlikely that a horizontal bomber could put a bomb in a ship. Is that a topmaster.

          The Germans did not plan to destroy the Soviet people, so they strictly followed the rules of warfare. Several anti-aircraft guns - there is a reason to stoke a medical ship. The Russians did not sign the Geneva and Hague conventions - there are legitimate reasons to destroy captured Russians. And the fact that German planes shot columns of refugees-this is all the propaganda of the USSR.

              Dear colleague seti
              1. In addition to this paragraph that you quoted, there is another last sentence.
              2. It seems to me that there is a banal misunderstanding, and the dispute begins from scratch:
              A colleague, the Leader of the Redskins, indicated that there were several antiaircraft guns on the "Armenia".
              I pointed out in an ambiguous form: that if there were no anti-aircraft guns, they would not be drowned (in fact, the presence of anti-aircraft guns allowed the Nazis to legally sink "Armenia", but if there were no anti-aircraft guns and escort ships, "Armenia" would still be sunk)

            ..... The Russians did not sign the Geneva and Hague conventions - there are legitimate reasons to destroy captured Russians.

            The main thing is that the Germans signed it. And mortality in Soviet captivity was lower than in German.

            Do not write nonsense.
            On August 25, 1931, the People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs M. M. Litvinov signed a special declaration announcing the USSR's accession to the convention.
            It turns out:
            1. The USSR joined the "Convention for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the Field."
            2. Germany was obliged to comply with the Convention regardless of the actions of the USSR.
            On July 17, 1941, the USSR, through an intermediary - Sweden - addressed Germany with the message that it recognized the 1907 Hague Convention
            and ready to fulfill it on the basis of reciprocity. Having not received an answer, after three weeks on August 8, 1941, all the heads of the diplomatic missions of countries with which the USSR had diplomatic relations received a note of the same content.
            In order to say after all this that the death of our prisoners in concentration camps and the wounded in hospitals is Stalin's fault, that the country and its leader did nothing to save people, our liberde must truly have no conscience.

              1. It would be nice if you learned to distinguish between different Geneva Conventions. fool
              The "Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War" and the "Geneva Convention for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the Field" are different and unrelated documents.
              2. ARTICLE 82.
              Les dispositions de la présente Convention devront être respectées par les Hautes Parties Contractantes en toutes circonstances.
              Au cas où, en temps de guerre, un des belligérants ne serait pas partie à la Convention, ses dispositions demeureront néanmoins obligatoires entre les belligérants qui y participent.
              Translate yourself.
              3. Appeal of the Government of the USSR - The Government of the German Empire did not commit to anything. Moreover, in the appeal of the Government of the USSR, extremely significant reservations were made. In these conditions, the Reich could either show "good will" or not show it. Hitler - for completely understandable reasons (just read Mein Kampf) - decided not to show such "good will". The result is more than well known.

              And "liberda" (especially yours) - it has nothing to do with it. I am a radical Wielkopolska nationalist of radical ultra-right views.

          Theory of the Super Race and Living Space.
          Aryans (Germans) must live, and subhumans (Slavs) must die. Those who can work - let them work, those who cannot work - should not live. And since it is easy to destroy wasteful subhumans, then every resource must be used. We need an experimental "rabbit" or "laboratory mice" - there are prisoners; you need human blood - there is a resource (children, women, adults - no difference). At the same time, the Nazis themselves somehow did not bother that they were mixing the blood of ARIEV and Subhuman.
          As for the bombing of cities and villages, the answer is simple: war. A defenseless city or a major strategic object, Polish, Norwegian, English, Yugoslav - no difference.

      You still cry. Crocodile. You want to say, if the ship had no weapons, these "supermen" would not sink? You, my friend, seem to be one of those who will grow out of "knees from Urengoy". My wife's grandfather died near Kalinin. A seriously wounded man ended up in a hospital, which these Fritzian bastards bombed with the greatest care. What? Red cross on the banners and no air defense. So the bastards took their fun.

          I read somewhere that the actions of the captain of the submarine violated the London Maritime Agreement, which says that you can only drown a passenger / merchant ship if you “remove” all passengers and ship documents to a safe place.

          Germany until the end of the war hid the torpedoing of this ship. If they were “right,” then what was there to hide? Moreover, the captain of the submarine himself told Doenitz that it seemed to him that the ship was patrolling, there was no talk of any navigation lights.

            According to the report of the U-30 commander, "the ship followed without navigation lights, on an anti-submarine zigzag and a general course unusual for merchant ships." This is why it was identified as an auxiliary cruiser.
            And they hid it - for propaganda reasons. In September 1939 (before the bombing of Warsaw), all sides still pretended that they "intend to wage and are waging a" merciful war "in strict accordance with international law and even more humanely than the current international military law allows." + big politics. Before, EMNIS, September 30 - against ships identified as French (even military) - ships and submarines of the Kriegsmarine were allowed to use weapons only for the purpose of self-defense and protection of other ships flying the German flag.

            Generally - a war between any civilized societies is usually not begins as a merciless massacre. The escalation of violence is a process of a certain duration, always. But why go far for examples: ours, too, in April 2014, were still almond-shaped with separatists (just like the separatists were still almond-shaped with ours). And already in August - often each other was not even taken prisoner - they were shot on the spot nafig. And it is "good" if "they just" shot "...

      Unfortunately, in Armenia there were several anti-aircraft guns.

      In July 41, the sanitary transports "Adjara" (of the same type as "Armenia") and "Kuban" were sunk, although they met the requirements for hospital ships (in particular, they did not carry weapons). Four 45-mm semi-automatic machines on the "Armenia" appeared after the destruction of the above-named vessels.

      German aircraft attacked hospital ships on most of the theater, including and on the Black Sea

      The Germans are still trying to hang dogs on Marinesko for "Gustlov", they say, a war criminal, but what about the He-111 crew and those who sent it on a mission and directed it to the target? Moreover, "Gustlov" went with an escort of warships (I don't remember the class offhand, but like destroyers), and he himself had several FLAK 88mm on board, which, in case of a successful hit, could sink a submarine, i.e. in fact, it was a warship. Well, the school of scuba diving officers cannot be attributed to the wounded and civilians.

      The stretchers with the wounded were erected in Armenia, people stood as if in a crowded tram. If Armenia from Sevastopol immediately went to the shores of the Caucasus, then it would not be sunk - the transition would be night. But the captain was ordered to go to Yalta and pick up high-ranking party leaders. This is with the seriously injured on board when every minute is precious. As a result, Armenia left Yalta during daylight hours and was sunk.

        What happened, what happened ...
        Calling to Yalta was a mistake.
        But what would you do as a fleet commander or a ship commander.
        Indeed, in Yalta, the Soviet leaders remained, who, when the Germans appeared, were supposed to be identified first and destroyed.
        Destroyed and members of their families.
        And there was nowhere to go from Yalta.
        The experience of such situations comes with some delay.
        But in June 1942 already "Tashkent" will pass by without stopping at the place where the sailors of "Impeccable" and soldiers of the 142nd OSB were killed.
        And in October 1943, while trying to save his comrades, the leader "Kharkov", the destroyers "Merciless" and "Capable" were killed. Again, they showed humanity in the war ...
        This is a very difficult problem.

        I don’t know how I would live if I knew that saving me, I had to abandon families in Yalta with women and children to be destroyed by the Nazis.

              Who gave this order to enter and leave Yalta during daylight hours is not clear. Ends in the water. But this is clearly not the initiative of the Armenian crew. The order of the commander of the Black Sea Fleet of Oktyabrsky was in force, banning access to the sea until 19.00, that is, before dark, due to the lack of air cover. It is unlikely that the captain or one of his assistants could take and ignore the order of the commander of the Black Sea Fleet, without pressure from above.

    Every time, using the example of the Czechs, I will be these sufferers, tortured by the Holodomor, Stalinist repressions and ... with all their liberal crap I will remind you of traitors, and especially those whom they raise on the shield like the "Prague Spring".
    Here I spread again:
    why did the Czechs surrender without a fight?

    All this is puzzling. There were more than ten thousand Czech pillboxes and forts, and on the Mannerheim Line, for example, there were only a few hundred of them. Their quality was also good - it impressed even Hitler, usually with contempt for the Slavs. Czech tanks clearly outnumbered German ones, aviation was comparable in number, and taking into account Soviet military assistance, it was as if not more numerous. The excellent artillery of the "Skoda" is familiar to our army as well - the Wehrmacht fired at us from it. The USSR also tried small arms of the Czechs the hard way. The Czech ZB-26 machine guns for their high combat qualities, the SS troops preferred the German MG and fought with them. Why did the Czechs not dare to fight, surrendering to the German demands? All these centuries they were not so much an ethnos as an ethnic substrate - next to the Germans who actively absorbed this substrate. The only bad thing in this situation was that for some reason the people with such an undeveloped national feeling were given sovereignty, which they did not really need. What is delivered without a fight is often not appreciated. September 1938 is an excellent example of this kind. The main reason for the surrender of the Czechs was not the Munich Agreement. This reason was their unwillingness to do anything for the sake of their independence.

    The command of the Black Sea Fleet was not a childish oddity: either they planted mines, it is not clear from whom, they were waiting for the landing force from the sea, or the ambulance transport would be sent without escort and cover. A lot of the Black Sea Fleet medical personnel, wounded, evacuees, and the crew were lost on "Armenia". The figures are more than 5 people, although exactly how many are above, I'm afraid we won't know.

      "Armenia" was escorted by two MO-4 boats and a pair of I-153 fighters, but both of them missed the Heinkel attack.

      But, having a cover, "Armenia" was automatically deprived of the status of a hospital ship in the legal sense.

      For a long time, scribblers wrote that there at the bottom there are such terrible deposits of silt and hydrogen sulfide. That's how it smells !!! Crimea will not be !!! But how really?

      Manipulation of Consciousness, Kara-Murza
      Hydrogen sulfide boom. It is known that a feature of the Black Sea is the presence of a “hydrogen sulfide layer” in it. He was discovered a hundred years ago by a Russian boatswain, smelling a rope lowered to the depths, from which it smelled slightly of rotten eggs. The level of the “hydrogen sulfide layer” fluctuates, sometimes its boundary rises to a depth of only 50 m. In 1927, there were even “sea fires” during a large earthquake, and pillars of flame were observed in the sea in the regions of Sevastopol and Yevpatoriya.
      Perestroika in the USSR coincided with another rise in the hydrogen sulfide layer, and glasnost gave newspapers spicy information about the “sea fires” of 1927 (before, when there was no habit of scaring people, this information was not widely published). Convenient conditions for a major boom arose, and he was “untwisted”. Here are examples of hysterical predictions from 1989-1990. only in central newspapers:
      Literaturnaya Gazeta: “What will happen if, God forbid, a new earthquake occurs off the Black Sea coast?” Sea fires again? Or one flash, one grand torch? "Hydrogen sulfide is combustible and poisonous ... hundreds of thousands of tons of sulfuric acid will appear in the sky."
      “Working platform”: “A small earthquake is enough for hydrogen sulfide to come to the surface of the Black Sea and catch fire - and its coast will turn into a desert.”
      “Top Secret”: “There is enough coincidence in time and space ... a sharp decrease in atmospheric pressure and vertical flow. Boiling, water will saturate the air with toxic fumes of combustible gas. Where the deadly cloud will drift - God alone knows. It can cause casualties on the coast, in a matter of seconds it can turn a passenger airliner into a “flying Dutchman” 293: #.
      Finally, M.S. Gorbachev himself warned the world about the apocalypse coming from the USSR. He said from the rostrum of the International Global Forum on Environmental Protection and Development for Survival (what is the name of the forum!): “The upper boundary of the hydrogen sulfide layer in the Black Sea over the past decades has risen from a depth of 200 m to 75 m from the surface. Not much else, and through the threshold of the Bosphorus he will go to the Sea of ​​Marmara, Aegean and the Mediterranean. ” This statement was published in Pravda.
      Scientists - and oceanologists, and chemists - tried to explain to politicians that all this is ignorant nonsense (they naively thought). Well-known data were published in scientific journals:
      1. “Sea fires” of 1927 have nothing to do with hydrogen sulfide. They were observed in places distant from the boundary of the hydrogen sulfide zone for 60-200 km. Their reason is the emergence of methane from a Kryvyi Rih-Yevpatoriya tectonic fault during an earthquake. This is a gas-bearing region, drilling is underway there for gas production, natural gas outlets in this area in the form of “torches” are regularly observed. All this is well known, and the refusal of all major newspapers to publish this scholarly note directly indicates that it was a matter of deliberate misinformation.
      2. The maximum concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the water of the Black Sea is 13 mg per liter, which is 1000 times less than necessary so that it can be released from the water in the form of gas. A thousand times! Therefore, there can be no question of any kind of ignition, devastation of the coast and burning of liners. For hundreds of years, people have been using the hydrogen sulphide springs of Matsesta for therapeutic purposes (perhaps even M.S. Gorbachev himself enjoyed it). They have never heard of any explosions and fires, and even the smell of hydrogen sulfide is quite tolerable there. But the hydrogen sulfide content in the waters of Matsesta is hundreds of times higher than in the water of the Black Sea.
      There were times when people in mines encountered high-concentration hydrogen sulfide jets. This led to poisoning of people, but explosions, unlike methane, never were and could not be - the threshold explosive concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air is very high.
      3. Fatal concentrations of hydrogen sulfide in the air are 670-900 mg per cubic meter. But even at a concentration of 2 mg per cubic meter, the smell of hydrogen sulfide is unbearable. But even if the entire “hydrogen sulfide layer” of the Black Sea is suddenly thrown to the surface by some unknown force, the content of hydrogen sulfide in the air will be many times lower than the level of unbearable smell. So, a thousand times lower than the level dangerous to health. So there can be no talk of poisoning.
      4. Mathematical modeling of all conceivable regimes in fluctuations in sea level and atmospheric pressure over the Black Sea, carried out by oceanologists in connection with the statement of M.S. Gorbachev, showed that the flow of hydrogen sulfide into the Sea of ​​Marmara and beyond, with poisoning of western civilization sweet to his heart, absolutely impossible - even if the most powerful of the known tropical cyclones passes over Yalta.
      All this was thoroughly known, the hydrogen sulfide anomaly of the Black Sea has been studied for a hundred years by many scientists around the world. When the Soviet press began this boom, a number of authoritative scientists, including academics (!), Turned to newspapers - not one of them undertook to give soothing information. The most popular publication that managed to break into - the journal of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR "Nature", a journal for scientists. But he could not compare with the circulations of Pravda, Literaturnaya Gazeta, Spark of that time, or with the influence of television.

        However, a detailed answer! ... Respect! ...
        If you do not climb into the wilds and in a nutshell ...
        Horrors and spontaneous combustion of the World Cup, hydrogen sulfides periodically scare local people, yes.
        Now I don’t remember, somewhere around the end of the eighties, the question was raised very seriously and urgently! I was a kid then. Fifteen years. Not today, tomorrow there will be earthquake, the sea will light up. Alive- envy the dead! It was scary. In fact.
        Tolchek or three ... There was a place to be. I personally felt on the fourth floor. Doors staggered ...
        However, in my memory, our Khrushchevs did not collapse from something, the sea did not ignite. And I see no reason for further fires. At least "bulls" about him carcasses.

    The depth is great, of course. The tragedy is huge - one Sevastopol hospital is worth what - all the doctors, medical staff, equipment and all the wounded.
    But the following is also curious: Beria, by his personal order, delayed the exit of "Armenia", the Chekists loaded something there, and they themselves set off on the ship, escorting the cargo.
    This "something" is still unknown, and is probably of great value.

          There were definitely documents. Eyewitnesses saw boxes and sacks on the pier.
          Employees of the NKVD who were evacuated could be the bosses and their families. These were mainly the leaders of Yalta and other cities and party leaders, as well as their families.
          And the NKVD officers themselves remained - these were mainly border guards and operatives, mainly future partisans and underground workers. Their families could also be evacuated.

      No, as far as I remember, the main sorrows began much later than Baba Klava. Namely, in the area of ​​Yalta.
      There they waited / accepted something ...
      And honestly, I don’t believe in a mega conspiracy against the ship.
      Inclined to think, a coincidence has happened.
      That which did not come out at night is certainly not right.
      Again ... We were not there at that moment either.
      The ship commander knows better. Challenge his actions ...

    The German torpedo bomber He-111 fired two torpedoes on the ship, which had the distinctive signs of a medical vessel, and both hit the target. The ship sank literally in 4 minutes, taking to the bottom from five to ten thousand people, the exact number of victims has not yet been established.

    It is possible that not only values ​​but also archives, which were much more important.
    Well, the attack of a single torpedo bomber (not a pair, not a troika, without cover) leads to certain thoughts.

          A pair of our fighters patrolled at an altitude of about 3000 meters, as they were mostly afraid of dive bombers. Well, the guys missed a low-flying torpedo bomber, and a couple of watchdogs unjustifiably went far ahead. Such an ambush happened! By the way, in February of this year there was an article about this disaster on the VO. And the article and discussion were quite good!

          It was not uncommon to fly solo Condors (they were even called the scourge of the Atlantic) Focke-Wulf Fw 200. This is a hefty 4-engine car. Could attack the target itself, if it seemed too tough, or else circled over a convoy discovered, constantly transmitting coordinates, to submarines, and directing aircraft (conceived - of its own brothers). Convoys did not have air cover, and Condors acted at the beginning of World War II with almost impunity.
          In the Black Sea, German dominance was overwhelming.

      Free hunting. It was practiced not only by fighters, but also by pilots of bombers and torpedo bombers.
      In addition, there was especially nobody to fear - Luftwaffe aircraft dominated the sky. Meet the Soviet fighters - the probability is very small.

    In fact, a great day for the repose of many people !!! Land they rest in peace.
    And about the anti-aircraft guns, on the one hand it seems like yes, with them the ship is no longer civilian and this is a fact.
    But one must look at the circumstances. First of all, the plane was alone. This means that there was probably no preliminary aerial reconnaissance and the plane flew to torpedo the ship. It is unlikely that the pilot would make a preliminary flight, then again went in for torpedoing. With a high degree of probability, we can say that they deliberately bombed.
    The only option could be that he was fired by the same anti-aircraft guns and went on the attack. Then the anti-aircraft gunners themselves signed a sentence.
    But as for me, it is nevertheless closer to the truth the first option, in which the ship was sunk consciously.
    Be that as it may, this is a great event, a day of justice and tranquility !!!

    ,,, in early August, the ship was re-equipped for transporting the wounded from Odessa, changing its status and painted in a spherical color, traditional for a warship. On the vessel were installed 4x45mm 21K universal guns and four 12,7mm machine guns. Since August 10, 1941 it’s already incorrect to call “Armenia” a ship, it’s a ship that was part of the Black Sea Fleet, because he, in addition to weapons, receives a fully military command.
    ,,, from the point of view of shipbuilding, it is impossible to accommodate 5 thousand people on board the “Armenia”. This is a very large quantity. An analysis of the transportation of the same type of transport "Abkhazia" and "Georgia" shows that the maximum number of personnel transported by these vehicles at a time never exceeded 2,7 thousand people. Calculations of the capacity for these ships show that when transporting such a number of passengers, the personnel had to be placed on the upper deck while standing, and in office space sitting on the floor. At the same time, at least 4 people were supposed to sit on each stationary bed, and the hanging beds should be removed, i.e. transportation of the wounded was excluded.

      ,,, traditionally, the drowning of “Armenia” is attributed to group II./KG26, its 6th squadron (12 aircraft) was based at the Buzeau airfield west of Galati, in Romania, from where this squadron operated on communications in the Odessa region.
      Theoretically, her planes could reach Yalta, the distance from the airfield to Yalta is about 700 km, the radius of this aircraft, 800-900 km (flight range 1950 km). But there is one “but”: since October 19, 1941. Squadron aircraft did not, not a single sortie.
      ,,, the Black Sea Fleet aviation could not ensure the passage of the vessel, especially since the documents mention I-153, which is also strange, because the time spent by airplanes in the air was limited, especially considering the need to return to Sevastopol.

      So the questions are full.

    Other sources write that the attack on "Armenia" was two torpedo bombers. ……… The first target was spotted by a pair of German torpedo bombers Heinkel He-111. Our fighters considered the diving bombers of the Yu-87 to be the main danger, therefore they patrolled high and did not notice low-flying vehicles. The boats were ahead and also missed the attack. The overloaded ship could not leave in time for the anti-torpedo zigzag. Later, during interrogations, the katerniki testified that two torpedoes of the Heinkel’s lead passed by and exploded in the coastal cliffs. The second came from the shore, on a shaver, tightening the crests of the waves with screws. The torpedo hit the bow compartment, "Armenia" sank literally in a matter of minutes ... ... ..

                    Do you seriously believe in the World Government, or rather, a global conspiracy conspiracy? winked The fate of any state formation depends solely on its citizens, to what extent they are able to put the interests of the Motherland above their own, if on the contrary, it is a cover, and the opinion of those who "owns" plays only a certain role, nothing more.

                      No, I do not believe in the existence of a World Government. Moreover, I am of the opinion that such a government cannot be created in principle, at least until Mankind begins to colonize Mars on a large-scale or enters into an exchange of resources with extraterrestrial civilization.
                      But the World Conspiracy exists. And not alone. But all such "conspiracies" are nothing more than attempts to "fish in the troubled waters of the general civilization crisis."
                      Nevertheless, the phenomenon of "world elites" does exist. And if a stable, broad and active consensus on some issue develops among these elites, no state and no society can successfully and long-term resist them.
                      PS In the course of a general nuclear war - "the fate of the state formation" will also "depend exclusively on its citizens"? Maybe - all the same from the used megatonnage and other operational factors? (I do not consider VOYAV essentially probable - this is just an illustration of the obvious absurdity of your corresponding thesis)
