      The cause of the fire was the explosion of the latest lithium-ion battery.

            It's a pity! Experienced specialists at the post heroically died!

          Do you think there is no conclusion? Of course, there is simply something that can be made public, but something is not ... Alas, this is the practice of all countries ...

      You can not think about it. Is it possible that something will come out of such a secret object. This is the same as posting a PIN code from your bank card on social networks.

      Well-oo-oo-oo ... Twenty years later (!), an even hole on the right side of the Kursk, with the edges concave inward, continues to suggest that the cause of the Kursk tragedy was a faulty peroxide torpedo (!)inside the boat .... recourse request Well, what ... (!). About the death toll ... although probably not necessary .... No.

    Everlasting memory! I don’t want to rant, I was on the Arctic Ocean in the summer once on a business trip and imagined that the ship would sink, scary! And grandfathers fought! Everlasting memory!

    it’s time to erect a monument in St. Petersburg, there is no memorial dedicated to all submariners of both the Russian Imperial Navy and the Soviet Red Banner Fleet and the modern Russian fleet honor, memory and glory
