Russian Submarine Transits Under Arctic Ice Without Surfacing

Navy Public Affairs Officer K1R Igor' Dygalo informed RIA Novosti on Tuesday that the Northern Fleet SSBN Ryazan' completed an interfleet transfer under the Arctic ice without surfacing .

"At around 0400 Moscow time today after more than thirty days underway the SSBN Ryazan' moored at the pier at the Pacific Fleet submarine base at Vilyuchinsk (Kamchatka)", Dygalo announced.

"The crew of the submarine completed all missions during the deployment with honor and are doing okay", the PAO said.

The transit of the submarine was done under the command of K1R Igor' Stepanenko and the senior officer present afloat was the commander of Northern Fleet submarines K1R Aleksandr Moiseyev.

The Ryazan' was met at the base by the Commander of the Pacific Fleet Vice Admiral Konstantin Sidenko and the Commander of Forces in North-East Russia Rear Admiral Aleksandr Vitko.

"Russian submariners didn't waste any opportunities during their long deployment and confirmed the quality of their skills by carrying out complicated tasks in Arctic latitudes", the Commander of the Russian Navy Admiral Vladimir Vysotskiy said, evaluating the results of the Arctic expedition.

"The role of the Navy in supporting economic activity on the world seas as well as in the Arctic is clearly rooted in the maritime doctrine of the state. The Navy is called upon to support the economic and research activities of the Russian Federation in the world oceans including in the Arctic."

The Zvezda TV report emphasizes that the boat went 30 days without surfacing and illustrates the route. The Ryazan' is noted as carrying the upgraded SS-N-23 Sineva. The Ryazan' has been permanently assigned to Vilyuchinsk and is expected to perform combat patrols on a regular basis, a change from the usual Russian practice of welding them to the pier.
