Finnish wreck explorer Immi Wallin confirmed on social media yesterday that a Russian submarine has been found and identified by UWEX.
According to Wallin's report, UMEX (Underwater Exploration Team) found and identified Sch-317 yesterday, 2 May 2018.
This Soviet submarine lies at 78 meters / 255 ft between Gogland (Suursaari) and Tuiters (Tytärsaari) in the east part of the Gulf of Finland in Russian waters.
Sch-317 was sunk in 1942 by a German mine after surviving several attacks by allies that included bombing the Swedish coast.
