  History  
 
Allen Tony10/07/2009Most of the submarine´s hull, except the bow, was raised from the ocean floor by the Dutch salvage companies Smit International and Mammoet in late 2001.

It was towed to the Russian Navy´s Roslyakovo Shipyard. The bodies of its dead crew were removed from the wreck and buried in Russia – three of them were unidentifiable because they were so badly burned.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree awarding the Order of Courage to all the crew and title Hero of the Russian Federation to the submarine´s captain, Gennady Lyachin.
