    The Soviet-designed nuclear-powered submarine BS-64 Podmoskovye was refurbished as a research vessel, and is now undergoing sea trials in the White Sea in the country's north.

    The boat was removed from active service in 1999 to be refitted by 2002. However, the repairs were delayed by 15 years due to lack of funds. But in 2015 the work was resumed and now the submarine is ready for its new life as a proud member of the Russian Northern Fleet.
