The submarine that caused the catastrophic submarine disaster in the Pacific Ocean in November 2015 was named after a Yellow-faced creature.
It is believed that the submarine was named for a Russian submarine captain.
The U.K.’s Daily Mail newspaper first reported that the Russian submarine was to have been named after the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
It is a very common theme in Russian propaganda and in the works of Russian authors.
The submarine’s design features the Russian symbol for ‘red’ on its side, while a ‘blue’ on the underside.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied the reports saying that the name of the submarine is ‘not linked to any specific Russian interests’.
But in a statement issued on Sunday, Peskov did admit that the sub was named as such in the past, calling it a ‘classic Russian motif’.
“The submarine is named after its crew, Captain Vladislav, who was a commander of the Soviet submarine Kursk,” Peskov said.
“He died in the battle of Sevastopol on July 2, 1991, just a month after the Kursks were sunk.
His name is also written on the bottom of the boat, in the form of the ‘Yellow’ flag.”
“This is a classic Russian motif and one that we have been following for decades,” he added.
Peskov’s remarks come as the Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday that the vessel was carrying around 8,000 tonnes of weapons.
There are reports that the Krasnodar region is hosting the sub, but it was not immediately clear if the vessel had been named.
The Red Flag submarine is one of two Russian submarines that have been identified by the United States as the cause of the devastating Kursak disaster.
According to the Pentagon, the two Russian subs are the Komsomol-2 and Krasov-2.
The latter is a guided missile submarine that was reportedly deployed to the Baltic Sea in 2014.
In a statement on Saturday, the U.N. mission in the Baltic States said that a crew member on board the K-2 submarine had been found dead.
A report by U.NK said that the victim had been taken to the hospital in Novosibirsk for “a suspected gunshot wound to the head”.
The U. NK report said the cause and manner of death had not been confirmed.
