Russian admiral: Kursk disaster caused by NATO sub

FILE - Crew members of the nuclear submarine Kursk, one of Russia's largest and most advanced submarines, stand on the ship deck during the naval parade in Severomorsk, Russia, July 30, 2000. Kursk Captain Gennady Lyachin stands at right. Retired Vyacheslav Popov has alleged in an interview released Monday Nov. 22, 2021, that the 2000 Kursk submarine disaster was caused by a collision with a NATO sub, an unproven claim that defies the official conclusion that the country's worst post-Soviet naval catastrophe was triggered by a faulty torpedo.
