Russian blaze-hit vessel was nuclear-powered submarine - RBC cites source

MOSCOW, July 2 (Reuters) - A Russian defence ministry research vessel on board which 14 crew were killed in a blaze was a nuclear-powered AS-12 submarine, Russia’s RBC media outlet cited an unnamed military source as saying on Tuesday.

There was no confirmation from Russia’s defence ministry on the type of vessel, or whether it was nuclear-powered. (Reporting by Polina Devitt; writing by Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Christian Lowe)
