    According to a military source, Russian military divers have launched an operation to salvage secret equipment from the sunken Black Sea Fleet vessel Liman within a period of two weeks.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russian military divers have launched an operation to salvage secret equipment from the sunken Black Sea Fleet vessel Liman within a period of two weeks, a military source told Sputnik on Thursday.

    "The work of military divers began a few days after the incident. This work is continuing now. Depending on the weather, the work of the divers can last a week or two," the source said.

    The Liman research ship collided last Thursday with a Togo-flagged vessel 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the Bosphorus Strait. The Russian vessel sunk after its hull was ruptured; all 78 crew members were rescued.

    The source said four Russian Black Sea Fleet mooring and rescue ships are located in the vicinity of where the Liman had sunk.
