Russian researcher: On the sunken in the Russian-Japanese war cruiser

The Russian expert believes that on the Russian cruiser Dmitry Donskoy, sunk more than 110 years ago, which was recently discovered by specialists from South Korea, there is not a lot of gold.

Earlier, with reference to the South Korean media, it was reported that South Korean specialists discovered on the bottom of the Sea of Japan the cruiser Dmitry Donskoy, sunk in 1905. Work began on lifting the vessel. Presumably, on board the ship at the time of the crash was a cargo of gold bullion and coins worth $ 133.4 billion, but this information is not confirmed, according to Vesti: Primorye, referring to Interfax.

"What was the point of carrying such a valuable cargo on a military ship? The ship was going to war, there was a threat of flooding. For the first time I hear about it (gold on board), "said Sergei Kornilov, a historian and member of the Society for the Study of the Amur Region of the Russian Geographical Society.
