((
After nearly a dozen failed rescue attempts, relatives or the Kursk's crew are arriving in nearby Murmansk, Russia, waiting for any news, but like the rest of the world, are growing increasingly frustrated over a lack of reliable information. Russian president Vladimir Putin is being roundly criticized for remaining on vacation since the accident while his government is releasing only sketchy details of the rescue that are at times contradictory if not flat out wrong. Christopher Hellman, Center for Defense Information, "It's hard to know... on their part." Only today did Russia allow live pictures of the accident site to be relased, but refused to air underwater film showing what the navy has known for days. Reports indicate the sub has suffered extensive damage, consistent with either a collission or an explosion of one or more of her 28 torpedos, damage most experts agree probably crippled the Kursk's own evacuation capsule and sent the giant sub crashing to the ocean floor in a matter of seconds, killing nearly all of her crew instantly.
But Russia is still trying to make the case it did NOT waste time in asking for help. Although a British submarine and more than a dozen Norweigan deep sea divers won't reach the site until this weekend, the head of the Russian navy told NATO officials in Brussels that the crew's oxygen could last until the middle of next week. James Beaver, Jane's Defense Weekly, "I'm delighted to hear.... coming from the Russians."))
