    Two US Sherman tanks deployed in the World War II were lifted by Russia's Northern Fleet divers from the Barents Sea near the Kildin Island on July 12.

    With the help of remote-controlled underwater vehicles, deep-water divers worked for a week and a half at a depth of more than 50 meters to retrieve the discovery. It is assumed that both WWII-era tanks were aboard the USS Thomas Donaldson cargo ship, which sunk in 1945.
