Historians have rejected rumors about hundreds of tons of gold on flooded "Dmitry the Don"


Specialists of scientific department of Military and historical Pacific Fleet Museum have commented on detection in the Sea of Japan of the armored cruiser "Dmitry Donskoy" flooded in 1905. TASS reports about it. ""Dmitry the Don" is one of the Russian ships which were involved in the Tsushima battle, and he, just as other ships, is worthy attention. However it is unlikely on him some documents shedding light on crew or other aspects of his life can be found. Such number of years under water paper doesn't live" — historians have told. The staff of the museum has also noted that there are no data on transportation on the cruiser of a large supply of gold. The Shinil Group company which has found the cruiser of the Russian imperial fleet has stated that by the ship at the time of flooding there was freight from gold ingots and coins weighing about 200 tons and with a total cost about 133,4 billion dollars. According to the company, it could be the treasury of the Second Pacific squadron. The cruiser "Dmitry Donskoy" has been floated in 1883, was involved in the Russian-Japanese war. The cruiser has sustained serious damage during the Tsushima battle in 1905 and has been flooded by crew. The ship has been found at distance 1,3 kilometers from the coast of the South Korean island of Ullyndo. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
