Russian Navy Denies Kursk Weapons Allegations

Thursday, April 05, 2001
The Russian navy dismissed on Thursday a report that the Kursk submarine was carrying nuclear weapons when it plunged to the sea floor last August, killing all 118 sailors on board.

"I categorically deny this information. From the first day of the catastrophe we said there were no nuclear weapons on board the atomic submarine Kursk," a Russian Navy official said.

He said the comments about Kursk's payload, made by a Russian official this week, were "linked to his personal analysis and personal fantasy."
